    Yip Jono,

    Autowiel in Pta have quoted me on that exact same size and said they are indeed available. It was quite a while ago and can't remember the price. Drop in performance should only be marginal.

    I did not want to change to another size, mainly due to availibility when losing a tyre somewhere far from the big city centres. Another factor is that I don't want to lose the crawling abilities in low range.

    Also don't know what the new Wrangler is like, but I'd like one! The Rubicon version has a 4:1 Transfer case ratio instead of the normal 2.72:1

    i think the suzy has a 2.482:1 ratio, but i also think that the combination of low gearing and low isuzu torque makes for good crawling.
