Bought a new set of tyres !!!
« on: November 19, 2016, 05:43:00 pm »
Hi Guys,

After a rather busy time (3 family deaths and a new job!) I am now able to do a little more on my Unimogs so first up was to smash the piggy bank and buy a new set of tyres!

Had a ring around and checked a few web sites and nobody seamed to beat Barry Shaddock tyres in Gloucester at 390 +vat for 365/85-20 Conti MPT81 each for a set of 4.

Result:Bank balance 2 grand lighter but mog drives alot nicer :)

Mog's looking tidy Tony! Was a guy in holland a while back who had a whole stack of these with 80% tread for ridiculously cheap money, but when we paid a visit he only took cash and the nearest machine was miles away, we called in at a bank, and we couldn't take any cash out at that specific bank, so we had to give up!

Very nice! I've got the same on mine, although a bit slimmer in the tread department. They seem good on the road but not tried them in the mud really.

Sorry to hear of your recent run of bad luck. I've text a couple of times but didn't hear anything so figured you were busy. Give me a ring when you've got a moment - it's got to be getting on a year since I bumped into you in the pub!

Still no door windows then? :D
