I've had Defender 90s for quite a few years (NA, 200tdi & 300tdi), usually
on or converted to BFG 225/75 tyres. They all seemed to ride about the same,
even when I converted the last one to Polybushes (the Blue ones).
I've just been lucky enough to get a 2003 TD5 which has only done 8,800
miles. My problem is that it seems a very bouncy ride compared to all the
others. The mileage is genuine and there is nothing worn in the suspension
or steering, which leads me to suspect that it's because it's still on the
original tyres. These are 235/85 General Grabber TRs.
I've never driven a 90 on 235/85s before - is this bouncy ride a
characteristic of the tyre size - or the tyre make ?
Any views ?
