just a fyi
i have installed these beasts on my 2007 pat, i have a crdstu coil lift and have had to do a couple of small adjustments to the inner wheel wells to accomedate, i will be installing 6mm spacers to complete the adjustments, i must say these tyres are the quietest i have had(fatcory continentals, and Yokohama Geolanders 235/65/17), and even quieter than my other halfs tyres which a road tyres, i have posted extensivley at the other place with more detail as to the inner guard mods

thats the newer version, i used steel rods inside the aluminium tubes etc which strengthened it then used expanda foam to complete down the tubes to hold it all together
