  1. Hi. Haven’t posted in a while. But thought I’d share As some of you may recall. I have a thing for tall and skinny off road tyres. Now don’t get me wrong I simply love how big fat monster truck style tyres look on a Land Rover. And indeed I even own a fat set of Simex Jungle Trekker II’s. But it has been my experience that for most off roading in the U.K. that I’ve done at the very least. Skinny tyres tend to actually work better. And certainly if you are into trials events. Narrow tyres tend to make the Vehcile turn better and keep total Vehcile width down. Obviosuly there are some exceptions, such as very sandy soil where fat tyres do work better on. But shall we say for 80-90% of the places I’ve off roaded over the years. Narrow tyres would be my choice. For the past several years I’ve been on the look out for some. My ideal tyre would be something like a 7.50 x 18 or 7.50 x 19. But alas nobody makes anything remotely close to this. And even if they did. Rims for them might be an issue too. Leaving 7.50 x 16’s as the only real contender. But sadly so many are built on 235/85R16’s these days and the 7.50 ends up being short and fat!! There are still a few true 7.50’s about but I’ve never been one to follow the heard as it were. Howver I’ve just picked up a set of these. BlackStar Guyane 2 They are a 7.00 x 16. A tad narrower than a 7.50 and they should be shorter. But these seem pretty tall for some reason. They are physically taller than Fedima Partners in 7.50 by an inch or so. Here they are lined up to some 235/85R16 BFG MT KM 02’s. As you can see they are much narrower but almost identical height. And here compared width wise with to some 235/85R16 Cooper STT’s. And again almost identical height. The treat pattern looks pretty decent too. Big lugs, good tread depth and nice voids to clear the mud out of the tyre. I’ll report back once I’ve used them a little.
