235/85x16 on a std 90

Any problems with this size of tyres on my standard 1985 90, apart from
maybe rubbing on locks?

put 'em on suitable wheels, apart from that no. We've a thread about this
at the moment, the jury's out on whether LWB rims are suitable (though I've
seen plenty on such rims with no apparent problems)

standard SWB rims are too narrow.

Why? I've had 7.50s on SWB rims for the last 20 odd years. Won the
SROC RTV league twice with them, so they can't be that wrong.

235s are wider than 7.50s. 7.50s on SWB are a bit iffy, but you can get
away with it. 235s are more like 9" wide.

Austin Hi,

Land Rover themselves offer the Defender TD5 D90 with 235/85 X 16 tyres
mounted on 7.5 X 16 alloy rims.

Take care
Pantelis

Am I right in thinking that the two systems measure tyre width at
different points? So that a 235/85 would have a different aspect ratio
if you measured width under the old system.
