Discovery 2 tire query

Has anyone fitted 235/85/16 tires to a stock D2?

Had one at the dealer like that. Too narrow a tire for the wheels IMHO.

*not legal advice*

Yeah a few people I know of. I agree 235 is a bit narrow for 8" wide wheels, but I haven't seen them lose a bead from it

8" is too wide for a 235. You should switch to a 7".

265/75 seems a better size for a Disco 2. They are seriously heavy pigs and you can't have too big of a tire.
