what to do ?????????????????
FWIW I've been running the same size tyre though in a MT ATZ on the MN for a month or so with no issues. I haven't noticed that much power loss. The torque of the oiler keeps it going.
I have noticed it kicks down on hills now that it used to cruze up in 5th though that could be more to do with the clogged manifolds that are getting cleaned tomorrow... lol Fuel use did go up about 2lt/100kms.
The revs at 110kms have dropped a little it now sits on 2000 RPM where with the standard HT's on the 17" rims it was 2200 RPM.
A mate bought his 285/75 x 16 MTZ's the same time as I got the ATZ's. On his Lux and has pretty much gone through them in 30k KMS with daily blacktop use yet in almost the same kms my ATZ's have still got 18mm tread depth. At $340 a hoop its a pretty expensive exercise to use muddies in the city.
