tyres

Hi
I have a two inch suspension lift on my discovery 1995 300tdi and would like
to fit bigger tyres without cutting parts of the body away. the current
tyres are 235/70/16 what are the biggets tyrres I can fit on the same
wheels? these wheels and tyres look lost ,31 or 32 in tyres would look
better. do colway do this size tyre as my mileage is less than 5k per yr.
cheers

I reckon you should get away with 235/85R16.

Have a look at http://www.discoweb.org/, click on "tech", then "tires &
wheels". There's quite a useful summary there of what will fit what.

I reckon Neil Brownlee will be along shortly to disagree. Think
you'll be OK at the front, but will need some minor cuts to the rear
arches IF you intend to use the full travel (and there's little point
if you don't).
