Hi all,
I'm new on here, though I have been lurking and absorbing for some time. ;)

What's the general opinion on using a different tyre size on front and rear wheels?
If the front ones are "correct" for size and load, does it matter of the rears are a little bigger?

I have bagged some Range Rover wheels with decent tyres, so it would be nice to get some wear out of them and just change the front two for now. The two taken off would then replace the rears when worn.

Any notions??

Ta,
Thom.

That's what I was thinking..

It might look a bit comical.. we'll have to see.

Anyone done it??

I picked 'em up tonight.
255/55 R19s on. They look huge!

Wait, they are huge. :jd Maybe too huge..

They might not even fit in the arches!

We shall see.. might change all four tyres.

The good news is that they are rated at over 900Kg each. :)

Bolt kit required now..
