  1. On two occasions now my FL2 has exhibited quite alarming juddering at about 50mph in 5th or 6th. The first time it was so alarming that I thought I had a flat. After stopping to check, I pulled away again and the problem had gone. Until last week when it happened again, on a different stretch of road. Slowing right down to pull off, then speeding up again and the problem went away. The only other symptom I have noticed recently is an intermittent squeak from one of the rear wheels.....when moving slowly, you hear an "eek eek eek" as the wheels rotate. Not every trip though. My local garage has had a look at the brakes and they say they look fine. Any idea what to get looked at next? I'm not into working on cars so I'd love it if someone could at least suggest what the garage should be looking for (they are nit Freelander specialists) TIA

    Haha hence the confusion. Anyway I'll toddle off to the relevant forum then. Thanks.

    OK Thanks I'll look into All Terrains. It came with M+S tyres, which I now realise are not Marks and Spencer! And its not obvious this a LR1 forum at least, not to me

    Greetings and a tyre question

    Hi guys, I acquired by 2008 FL2 yesterday (lovely shiny electric blue) and am looking forward to getting into the mountains very soon. Where I live on Anglesey we get no frosts or snow to speak of, so much of my driving will always be on tarmac at moderate temperatures. However I do like to up into the hills of Snowdonia I am always worried at the prospect of it snowing while I'm out, meaning a treacherous journey back. Would I be better off with winter tyres until Spring, or should I get a set of chains for the fronts for those odd occasions (and there might be quite a few) when I get caught out? I don't offroad (except the odd track to park up in). Thanks, and I'll probably be bck with a load more Qs soon!
