    I saw something like this last week in Durban - looks very silly I'm afraid.

    Rotated every 10 000km. Still plenty of life left - I'd say minimum 30 000km.

    Re: Wheel weight - Ford Ranger

    Very interesting, I recall reading in one of the American magazines that a bigger wheel vs tyre combo (lower sidewall) is normally lighter so good to see that this is not always the case.

    Re: Lightweight Aluminium Canopy - Advice

    I reckon that this will cost less than 1/4 of an aluminium canopy from a major manufacturer.
