    Tyres . . . .

    My Shogun has stupidly-large 18" tyres on it (285/55/18) and I'm looking to replace them with a smaller tyre. Anyone done this with a Shogun? And if so, based on that experience would you have any suggestions as to what alternatives are out there? I'm predominantly looking at a 70/30 onroad/offroad split. Thanks for any advice

    You'll have to get a smaller wheel to dramatically reduce the tyre diameter. Otherwise go for a lower profile (ie the 285/35/18) or a narrower tyre that also has a lower profile ie 245/45/18. You will probably find that a lower profile won't come in anything other than road tread though so any decent A/T tyres are out the question.

    Sorry, I should've been clearer. I meant a narrower tyre, with a different profile. I'm considering either 265/60, or 255/60 as there're far more options (I hate the Pirelli Scorpions that it's currently shod with!!!) I just wondered if anyone had replaced the stock Warrior tyre sizes with something else

    the 260/60/18 are almost identical apart fro an 9% reduction in tread width..

    hope that helps

    Best stick to manufacturer and original sizes less bother.

    265/55/r18 looks to be a good bet with a good choice of full off-road and mixed use designs available, I'd ask a specialist off-road tyre retailer tyre specialist if your existing rims are ok to take the reduced width of fitment, this can be an issue...
    your speedo will also over read you actual speed as per the comparison site above.

    Thanks mate. The OE fitment means choices are pretty limited right enough. The Scorpions are ok, ut the're predominantly road tyres, and they're not the cheapest. Tread wear is pretty crap too, so they have to go

    I find the Cooper Zeon LTZ a good allrounder......
