I think I've seen stock Defenders with 33x12.5's on them in my NZ4WD (New Zealand 4 Wheel Drive) magazines. So who knows, with a few inches of lift, it just could fit those tires. I prefer the low lift & as big of tires as possible setup myself. There's a Defender 90 in an issue of NZ4WD that has 35x12.5R15 BFG MT's on, and I'd be amazed if it has more than 3" of lift. Tires are very close to the fenders (guards as they call them over there[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) though, not much flex, more of a mud machine.
This truck would be in New Zealand, so OME and a few other brands that are uncommon or just not here would be a good option. ARB, OME, TJM, and lots others. Sort of home town heros over there.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
I worked in a Land Rover dealership here in San Diego for a year. I saw several Defender 90's, but in that entire year I saw 1 Defender 110. Interestingly, I also saw a Defender 130.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Now THAT is rare here. You want to realize how screwed we are on the Rovers over here? Go to http://www.Autopoint.co.nz
, click on the Used Cars link, and look for Land Rovers. There was an immaculate 1999 2.5L diesel Defender 110 for sale there last week. Owner wanted right around $40,000 NZ for it. Not a bad price, eh? Now remember that $1 NZ = $0.41 US.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] We're getting screwed here in the USA on Rovers. Not to mention it takes forever to get parts, and they cost a gazillion to maintain. Neither of those is as big of an issue over there, where Land Rover is setup very well in NZ.
