Re: Off Road 18"s

Monocoque, IFS, IRS and a very minimal distance between the source of the noise and the bodywork are all contributors in my opinion. However bear in mind that tyre noise, and its offensiveness to the...

We have one of these. Very strong, doesn't rattle and yes, you can still lay down the seats for long items as previously posted.

Re: Off Road 18"s

So what do you do when you get a flat if a full size wheel and tyre won't fit into the wheel? Do you need to just squash it into the well? What is hitting the bulge - the tyre or the wheel?
