    Ok then. You are right, undet power the Detroit/Aussie lockers will be "hard locked". To have them "soft lock" you must not apply any power on the axle. However, in a turn and especially on a hard...

    Re: Renault Duster

    TX Butch. Well, I guess I will stay on 235/70R16 because the 235/65 (or 60) is also not that popular. The tire I want to fit does come in the 225/75 but 245/70 gives me an even wider range.

    Re: Renault Duster

    Does someone have experience fitting 245/70R16 tires on the Duster? 30mm lift and 10mm wheel spacers should do the trick but did someone on the forum try that? I know 225/75R16 can be fitted on a...
