    General Grabber AT's 17" off road tyres.

    4 x 225-65-17 General Grabber All Terrain tyres. Knobbly off road tyres, nearly new so tons of tread, no damage whatsoever, these were on a Honda CRV I purchased but they were too noisy for my liking and I don't count school runs or going to the office as "off roading" so they have to go...

    Sucessful reduction of road noise

But it has other uses as well, such as amusement. For some reason today I was reminded of a car I used to...

    Hi All, When I got my C63 I done a video of the exhaust whilst driving, finally got out today with the E63 to do the same. Surprising how very quite it is until its under load. Please excuse the pretty rough editing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8L1IqWF_9M C63 for comparison for...
