    Thumbs up Show me your 235/85/R16

    Howzit guys,

    I have spent countless hours doing tyre research for my Defender, and can never seem to find what I am looking for.

    Please share a photo of your 235/85/R16 tyres, I'd like to see what you guys are running with and how it looks on the vehicle!

    Thanks!

    Maybe it's less to do about what it looks like but what you want it to do...having said that...BFG's look good....

    True, but it always helps having a preview!

    Some serious car #### right there!

    Worried about tyre noise with STT so these are my shortlist choices to save for) open for suggestions)
    - cooper discoverer st maxx
    - hankook atm (might be able to get a good 70% set at a good price)
    - good year mtr (the ones on the new Defenders - apparently very expensive but look awesome)

    Almost everyone has recommended coopers but would still love to see what you guys are using on your Defenders or Cruisers or anything with 235/85/16!

    l assume the 265/75/16 versus the 235/85/16 Cooper STT Pro's will have similar look future's on the Defender. The 265 do look great and is genuine quite at 110 km/h but they are a little bit to wide. Looking into spacer's at the moment

    They really do look awesome!

    Worried about the noise of full-muds as my Td5 already makes enough noise
