More Tyre Questions
So here's the story.
Following a wholly bizarre month in which I've so far killed my beloved 300TDI County 110 and then stumbled upon a brilliant Camel Trophy Discovery, I now find myself about to depart on an eight month trek from Spain to Cape Town in a car that I bought yesterday. Sounds bad I know.
Even worse, the Dicovery came with 5 of the original trophy mud wheels and 4 Michelin XPCs, which are now out of production.
I don't really fancy the mud tyres (7.00x16?), but if I get 2 new wheels can I pair up say 2 Michelin ATs with two of the old XPCs, and if so which should go where? Also sods law says I'll end up with 3 good XPCs and only one good AT - what will this do to the handling as a short term stop gap? Are the Synchrones a better option? What about mixing brands, as I dearly loved my BFG ATs (and so apparently did the Spaniards who stole them)?
I'm carrying a tubeless repair kit (plugs) - does anybody have any experience with these?
Life was so much easier with a Defender....
