I have a SWB Pajero 3.8 and looking to buy new AT tyres.
Preferably going with 265/65r18. Very common size for Pajero in Australia and South Africa with no issues.
I originally looked at Geolanders Go15 but I've seen some people complaining about the sidewall strength. I indent to visit the wadis frequently, so I'm slightly put off by that. The other option is Kumho AT51.
At this stage neither tyre is available in the size I want but they are available in 275/65r18. There are mixed opinions for running that size in the 3.2 diesel versions but I can't seem to find any information on the 3.8. Although I've seen a couple running that size around here.
Has anyone tried 275/65r18 on their Pajero? I'd appreciate to hear your opinions.
With every carnity drive setting newbie level higher and higher, so this week demands bit more challenging and thrilling terrain of Murqquab to Lisalli. It's a combination of various set of dunes from small - med - large, where smaller takes the name of nasty technical dunes and big dunes demand good momentum to continue riding until you are through to a flat area. This time I plan to introduce ridge riding, slip face attack and side sloping. These all three are expert level skills, but we will start learning these in the intermediate terrain to give time to absorb and react. This area is very famous for Gazelle sighting so riding with your best long range camera is highly advisable.

I am looking to install light bars for night driving. With a wide array of options to choose from I am Finding it hard to make a choice. Can anyone based on their experience recommend
1.brands that have stood up to the job and which ones to avoid?
2. What is a the reasonable wattage that I should look for e.g 420?
3. For e.g is the LED rated for 420w output or 420 w halogen equivalent ? (Former is better)
4. Which configuration is ideal ? 1 bar on top + 2 small beamers on the hood + 1 each on side + 1 back? Is this overkill?
