What tyres have you got?


Class 2
120mm / 4.75" max tyre size with a 2.2 max rim size including spare.

Class 3
146mm / 5.75" max tyre size with a 2.2 max rim size (including spare).

So you can run Class 2 tyres in Class 3

Toy time at the Jeep factory!
Can you imagine the brown coats at Land Rover building these type of vehicles?
" Ooh I think we could put slightly bigger tyres on a defender?"
Difficult to chose a favourite, but I think the sand trooper 11 wins for me.
Anything with a V8 and portal axles is hard to dislike.

well seeing as it would prob be a while till i could get a wraith cage i'm going to make myself a class 2. done a mock up photo to see what it looks like and i think it looks good. i found out i can bolt the pin drive truck wheels straight up to wheel king axles so thats one prob sorted. just needs a few tweeks i think and some additions. i was thinking internal rollcage, small roof rack with spot lights, metal front and rear bumpers plus sliders, winch and wheel arch flares.
