    The OKA machines use Michelin XZL 225/100 R 16 as their standard spec tyre. On one internet site they were rated at 110 KPH, which is as fast as you are allowed to go in any case.

    It's just a case of find me the money.

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    This site lists 305/85R16 tyres as a radial alternative to the standard bartreads.

    You will find that those tyres will have 10 or 12 inch wide rims, not the original 6.5 inch rims on the Forward Controls.

    If you go to at least 8 inch rims your options increase dramatically.

    I have been trying to keep to standard rims/tyres.

    OK 101 owners - we have chatted back and forwards about tyres to put on our trucks but unless I have missed something - I am not sure what tyres will fit and where to get them - we do have the Michelins but $$$$$.

    My truck has Hankang bar treads but Hankang no longer list them.

    It seems there are plenty of expensive radials in the right rolling dia but they require 7-8" rims and our 6.5s are too narrow. There was a pic of a 101 in darwin posted a few months back that had Wranglers on it but on closer inspection it has different rims fitted and has wheel arch extensions to accommodated the extra width.

    So 101 drivers = cough up some information.

    What have you got fitted and where did you get them and how much??

    I will need new tyres and have drawn a blank in Canberra. I would prefer radials to bar treads.

    Garry there is always this guy in Newcastle with the supposedly unused XZLs - he has asked me to make an offer - I would take the 3 road tread and was thinking of offering something like what Chalmers will sell the Alliance Traction Lug (a bit like bar tread on the uniMogs) $380 and see where he goes. Someone can make an offer for the 4 Michelin XZL but it should be a reasonable offer for me to ring him up.

    The price of XZL's is over the top - I could by a decent wheel/tyre combination that would work for cheaper than they cost.

    A reasonable offer - hmmmm - against for what they actually cost or for what I would be prepared to pay - I don't think it would be a reason offer. $300 is probably not reasonable.

    But at this stage I am interested in what other 101 owners have fitted now and where they intend to get their next round of tyres.

    Cheers

    I have been doing some research and have found SilverStone 285/85r16 tyres for 220 dollars each.......Model Mt 117.
    They are a Muddy bar lug .
    They will fit the standard rims.
    The rolling dia seems the same as the 900x16 bar threads and the width the same.
    The advantage in these tyres is the radial design and price.
    The only thing I can find wrong is the the maximum inflation pressure is 36 psi so a fully loaded 101 with a tonne and a half in the back would be too much for these tyres.
    Light loads should be no problem.
    I have had the bar treads 900x16 and the Silverstones side by side .....very close in size.
    Any ideas ?
