Had a very lekker weekend as well as a drive in Alex Botha's 4.5...... what a car!! Those fat tyres and 3" suspension really makes a diferance on the obsticles. He went up Koos se Klim allot easier than mine.

Interesting thing I noticed. When measured his 33" 15's are about 1" wider on the tread than my 33" 16's.

Ja hy het Coopers op
Baie interesant...... ja daai is omtrent dieselfde as wat ek gemeet het. 33mm breer as myne en ja myne is nogals smal vir n 305, maar dit is omdat die profile 70 is en nie 75 ek dink.

As ek reg uit werk het hy omtrent n halwe tyre meer op die grond as wat ek het

Die profiel het niks met die wydte te doen nie. Onder die metriese stelsel is die eerste gedeelte die wydte op die breedste plek. Die profiel is die hoogte van loopvlak tot rim, as 'n persentasie van die boegenoemde wydte.

Maar dis belangrik om te besef dat al hierdie syfers "nominale waardes" is, en die vervaardigers mag afwyk daarvan.

Deur die loopvlak nouer te maak, sal die bande beter brandstofverbruik gee... Alles is mos maar kompromiee.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Alex, daar is nou vir jou n goeie vraag.
Jy kan maar kyk dit is daardie shape wat so maak, ek het n 2000 model en ek sukkel vreeslik met sy suspensie.
Die vorige modelle soos Pieter en Boegman sin doen dit nie, die later modelle soos Tinus sin doen dit maar baie baie minder.
Jy kan maar ook gaan kyk die modelle tussen 1998 en so 2004 se suspensie hang of na links maar meestal na regs.
So ja ek sal dit baie graag wil weet, so waar is die manne met die wit jasse?

Interressant dat jy dit noem, want my 2000 model hang ook bietjie na links. Dit het wel nie meer standaards shocks en coils in nie.

Ek het die grote weer gaan double-check. Het perongeluk die 285/75r16 se grote gepost. :imsorry:

Jou bande is onderstel om 33.1"x 12.2" te wees. d.w.s. 309.88mm wyd.
Maar die cooper st maxx's is nogal wyd, as ek na die 255/85r16's kyk wat ek het, lyk hulle baie weier as diesefde grote dunlops op die bakkie.

Fanus ek het nou net my "actual" breedte van die gedeelte van die band gemeet wat op die pad loop en dit meet 225mm en 235mm afhangend watse ry noblies jy meet

Alex Botha kom nou by my n draai maak dan meet ek syne.
