Here's a thread I never knew existed!
Today I put some Bridgestone D697's on, 215X65R16C, up from the bog standard 215X6016. Didn't want to go much bigger due to potential loss of climbing ability.
Would really like to find something in a mud terrain with the same diameter, on a smaller rim but there's nothing out there I've found in about a 665-680mm diameter unless I go to a 14" rim!

Oh, also put on an "our we there yet bashplate" - perfect fit, one man job, took less than a beer to remove old plastic one and install new one thanks to David Wilson, quality stuff.

All looks good, Ben. I didn't know that Bridgestone were making a 215/65 16 in D697, or had forgotten more likely .

For some reason I decided to brighten up my week by replacing the valve cover gaskets of the TB. Every bolt requires a different removal strategy...

replaced the weeping top radiator hose on the outback - it seemed to have swelled or wiggled itself off the block enough to foul the secondary fan, which promptly ground away the outside of the hose; that, or more likely I fluffed the initial install and didn't leave enough space between hose and fan.

Who knew the gen3 lib TT and 2.5 outback used the same part? Another lego subaru moment.

Very handy for these 40C days we're getting in Sydney at the moment.
