    Tyre

    Whats your vehicle? If I'm wrong 80 ratio is normally found on van tyres
  2. Reliability and Jaguar do not go well together. Especially Jaguar cars made during era you are interested in.

    I watched this video as well and I regularly watch videos from Doug but I just couldn't bear the ridiculous comparison of this with the latest LS. Of course the new LS would have more features but the LS400 had plenty of features to offer back in it's time. Also, the styling, I think it was the trend back then, personally I like this design over the new one. I'm not a big fan of all those lines and curves on new cars. This was the first and only model from Lexus in US, yet it gave a massive challenge to the German rivals, that itself tells what an impact this car had back then

    I know few people using 6 ply tyres on Hiace, they get punctures and on top of that the tyres wear out pretty fast

    Wouldn't that increase tyre wear? If i'm not wrong I think you take your SUVs off road, going for a lower ply tyre would increase the chances of a puncture

    Large vans and SUV tyres are normally 8 ply. Higher the ply, stronger the tyre is. In fact, nowadays most tyres come with the weight rating instead of ply rating. I'm not entirely sure whether the weight rating has anything to do with the comfort of the tyre.

    The Pajero has a unibody structure which explains why it has less body roll. Whats the make and model of the soft tyres you are referring to? My uncle has a Montero Sport as well, I noticed that it doesnt absorb small potholes well, even though it has fat tyres

    Pajero/Montero is similar to Montero Sport in terms of comfort?
  9. I saw in a Pajero FB group owners quoting the fuel economy of MK1 Pajero fuel economy, the figures were somewhere around 7-8 withing city limit and 10-12 out station
  10. I guess those figures you mentioned are for outstation drives

    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    Probably aftermarket installation

    Generally deep dish wheels have a negative offset, but I think they could have a zero offset on a wider wheel as well

    Offset tells you where the bore is placed on the wheel, if your wheel has a positive offset it means the bore is placed towards the outer end of the wheel and if its a negative offset it means the bore is placed towards the inner end of the wheel.
