GUiv, TD42. I'm currently running 265/75 R16 Couragia muds that are nearly run out. I had made my mind up to get 285/75s next time but on the weekend I found myself having to do a moderately steep handbrake start in a suburban street. I had to slip the clutch to take off - something I hate doing to a clutch. Now I'm reconsidering! What are other people's opinions/experiences on the fitting of 285s and how it changes the car's gearing? Thanks in advance.
