Gave them a 130 kms run yesterday and they corner and grip gravel road, mud really well. Have to make time to mess with tire pressure as they have a stiff side wall so run a little rougher than stock (think they are 8 ply or maybe six?). Steering effort is fine for 11" tire on the front (they measure 10" on my reckoning, I think perhaps because of 7" wide rim?). Fender extensions are in the future.... Especially on the front, have it figure with stock push pins (I think) just need the material. I need to track down sheets of UMHW to make them, thinking 3mm thick titanium impregnated UHMW (read exceptionally strong and flexible) sheeting should do the trick. May also clad the inner fenders to minimize mud and Keerap getting into engine area, and chewing on making a under driver's storage bin.
