Thanks!
Yours can be as well!
The truck in the back ground belongs to my buddy Chris (mudanddiesel here) he has the same tires on his Disco Series I. This size tire is the same as they used on Camel Trophy trucks (in the tall skinny vein).
Just gives the truck a nice stance.

Truck is growing on you!?!

BFG ATs will be smooth for at least the first 10k miles. only after they wear do they start to get noisey.

235/85/16 is almost the same size as 7.50/16. a bit shorter and wider. your 110 is quieter than the 90 because it has a top and is smoother because it has a 110 inch wheelbase. I have 235/85/16 BFG A/T's on my D1 and they are quiet and smooth. Tons of available tires in the 235 size though. I had that size on my 110 also and they give it the factory tall skinny look.

I've got some 245/75/16 BFG ATs on my DII that I may be parting with. Only about 5-6000 miles on them. They're in great condition. Not sure if they'll be too small for the 110 though. They seem to run pretty smooth and quiet for me. I know it's not a defender but it does have a top and a similar wheelbase. I presume that's why the 110 feels better than the 90 to you. Let me know if you're interested.

I like the Bridgestone Dualer AT/Revos. Very quiet but I agree with discotdi thewheelbase is really what's making the ride smoother.

I love the tire and oil debate I caused. Good thing I didn't ask about re powder coating my wheels black before I get the new tires.

I have seen a NAS 110 with black wheels and it is not my personal taste. I have seen another that had the exo-cage done in black and had black wheels and it did look quite nice.

Personally, I like the white with the black hubs and black lug nuts.
That dichotomy looks nice to me.

As far as powder coating is concerned, I know a lot of folks do it, but I have found that on the exo-cage or other parts, it works well, when it comes to steel wheels, I stay away from powder-coating because on chip or a little curb rash and you can write the finish off. I like to be able to touch up my wheels when they need it, and PC doesn't allow for that.

Just my two pennies.

That is good to know. My wheels have some curb rash that needs to be fixed. Odds are I am just going to get new tires and leave the wheels as is.
