    Hi guys my traveline currently has 215 85 r16 load index 110 tyres fitted. They are a pain to find in this country wondered as I'm changing all 6 if I could change to a more uk friendly size? Any help much appreciated!

    hi you could try 215 75x16 yes not quite the same but can cover that load rating .i,m using tigar on that size .with 113/111 load rating .
    these are acualy just under what was original load rating for mine i changed it while doing the conversion to artic as it will almost certainly never carry its full load anymore . they actually cover the gvw anyway.
    they are a budget type tyre . but can be half the price of top quality tyres .
    have found them very good wearing well and have had a few hammerings in morocco. i shall certainly use them again.
