    All
    I got myself some 18” mondial alloys for my 90, now I’m looking for tyres to go on them.
    275 65 18,
    285 65 18
    285 60 18
    What has everyone else fitted?
    Also which brand, how much and where from
    Cheers
    Dave

    16" steels, so they can be straightened out with a rock when you bend them in the dessert :D:D

    What are you wanting to use it for? Is it lifted?

    I know why people go for 18's, but personally think they usually look odd and wrong on a Defender. Plus they will likely make the ride worse. Disco2's ride way better on 16's than 18's.

    Not too many deserts near me, a few sand dunes, but you’re not allowed on them.

    Just using it as a run around. No off road stuff.
    Not sure about the lift, please see my other thread. Still working on if it is or not

    Mondials are a nice wheel 2nd to Comets. IMHIO ;)

    the Ride difference on a fender between 16" and 18" is negligible, not that defenders are comfortable anyways regardless.

    Looks are subjective, go with what you like OP..

    My 18"s have 255/55 R18 Nexan Rodians.

    Not the quietest of tires but hardly the worst.

    I use Nexen Roadians too, but mine are 235/85/16 ATs. I don’t think mine are noisy, but mine are on my 200tdi.

    The lumps in custard can be dangerous!
