Hi Martyn, what size options do you have for A/T & Muds for 265 / 275 & 285 both 16" & 17" tyres. Please send me the prices & if you have stock?

Thanks
Ernie

:rolling: :rolling: :rolling: Wont ever forget those Wrangles MTS I got for the White Troll - just looked awesome. :blonde:

The 265's were destined for the 80 Series cruiser in Nam but that will probably end up with 285 as well. Was just checking... :biggrin:

Any news on the seat covers yet?

When you are interested in buying let me know and I can get pricing. Prices fluctuate with R/$ exchange and it never seems to be in our favour.

So ever since fitting the M/T's I have had a bit of a shudder on the steering wheel between 90 and 100 km/h. Tried to sort out by balancing at 3 different places, removing wheel spacers, replacing some worn front suspension bushes etc but no joy.

Eventually worked out that 2 of the tyres where not exactly round so back to the fitment centre who phoned the distributor Auto & Truck Tyres in Wadeville. Note that they where not the distributor when I originally purchased the tyres.

Received a call from them the next day, took the vehicle to them, they determined that 2 of the tyres where out plus checked the spare which was also not round, did not have replacements in stock, brought 3 up from Durban and fitted them today. Awesome no nonsense service and no charge for tread used or anything else. I had done almost 7 000 km on them.

Before you trek out to Germiston go see Tinus's dude at Autowiel Centurion. They where the guys that picked up the "not round" problem.

Without writing a book this happens to all tyres premium or budget and happens in the manufacturing process. It is highly unlikely that all of our tyres have the same problem.

Thanks David M; they fitted the tyres and changed them a few weeks ago identifying that what is now my rear wheels are not round.
