    I might go down from 265's to like 255's depending on availabilty..not too much overall smaller, but gives just a hair more wheel well room...
    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.

    Dude for the money you would be better off getting wheel spacers. If you buy new rubber it HAS to be bigger!!

    In order for this converter to be accurate, your speedo reading with the stock tires has to be accurate. I went from the stock Michelins on my DI (235x70-16 I believe) to a 245x75-16 MT tire. I used three different GPSs and found that my aftermarket tires were right on. That means with my stock tires, I was actually going slower than my speedo read!

    This is a reprint of his article that appeared in a defunct LR website.


    I tripled the value of my Rover just by filling up the gas tank.

    Damn, it doesn't go up to 40's.

    This is why I have the GPS display to show MPH.

    But officer, my speedo only said 65.





    Who needs a speedo in an offroad machine. When in 5'th screaming at 3000 rpm's. I know I'm going about 80-85.
