Nope hasnt affected the turning at all, their on a ten inch rim so the offset is huge, ive got a two inch lift, though ive got too drop the rear shocks two inchs and then maybe fit inch spacers aswell and cranked trailing arms one day, they are amazing just been out for a test and boy they grip, though ive got too let the pressures down as there rock hard. i would come to eriboll but: - no MOT, nor arches wide enough or a snorkel and the tracking is awfull, lol. cheers lol!

Was thinking about these

bigger tyres. Kl71


The Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 was the joint winner of 4x4 Magazine's 'ultimate tyre test' to establish the best mud‑terrain tyre on the UK market. It shared top honours with a BFGoodrich, beating offerings from Goodyear, Wildcat, Maxxis, Cooper, INSA and Pirelli by a significant margin.

All eight makes of 235/85 R16 tyres were subjected to six challenging, real‑world tests, ie ‑ mud climb, bog run, side slope, rock crawl, gravel and tarmac braking. One vehicle was involved - a 2007 Land Rover Defender 110.

The magazine found the Kumho KL71 radically different in appearance from all its competitors and, in fact, to be the best looking as well as the joint best performer. The Kumho was awarded top marks on the rock crawl and gravel braking tests and performed with credit on the mud climb and bog run.

In summary, the magazine said, "The Kumho MT KL71 is a great tyre and a deserving all‑round winner. Give it a try."

Said Kumho's Managing Director Steve Tidmarsh, "We are naturally delighted with the result. 4x4 Magazine's test is very much in line with our own research and reinforces the confidence we have had in the KL71 from the outset. I can also reveal that the new 18in rally raid tyre we have developed for the Bowler Nemesis is based on the KL71 and that is surely the ultimate test for an MT tyre."

They are also a very good price.

I wouldint trust anyone called Steve either lol!

I was looking at the tyres on paddocks and for 33"x12.5"x15 they are 81 + vat i have found them cheaper on other sites but you get free postage on paddocks if you spend over fifty squid.
