    Stay 15" tires or move to 17"?

    FJ80. 15" wheels stock. Fitting ~33"s. Would you stay 15s for more sidewall or move to 17s? I have both OEM 15" and 17" wheels. 17 is the new 15. Options for tires are plentiful anyway. Any reason y'all would stray from 15?

    Edumecate me on NATO cans and spouts?

    I have several older NATO fuel cans that accompany me on my tours. Somewhere during garage adjustments over COVID I lost my neck/spout. Every one I seem to order are the wrong size. What exact spout/neck do I need to fit my cans?

    Fuel on roof. Fore or aft?

    I get it. Not the best place for fuel, atop the roof. I need a minimum of 10 extra gallons and don't have a larger/auxiliary tank. Due to weight and sloshing would you advise to mount them towards the front or the rear of a full length roof rack. Why?

    Roof bags?

    For a short period of time, I would tour with a set of waterproof duffel bags (large North Face) on the roof, properly packed and strapped down. I mostly tour with 4 people, three of them are now adult-sized, myself included :) This is where lightweight clothing, kids stuff, and other...

    Outside (on roof rack) 12VDC power bus?

    Folks, running 12VDC with ~40A capacity up to the roof rack, there will the "obligatory" LED lighting as well as outlets for the rooftent and an eventual solar feed.

    ¿What tire size do you wish existed? But does not.

    Some of us have to make compromises on tire sizing. Through the plethora of options, do you want a size that is simply not made? I do: 275/85R16 would have been ideal on my old LC80. A step up from the venerable 255s, but give a bit more width for larger vehicles, 255/80R18 keeps the skinny...

    Perfect off-highway tire = LTX? What?

    The off-highway tire debate is over, and I’m embarrassed. The winner has been anointed. Sans oil. The inevitable my-tire-is-better threads may now cease. Allow me to proclaim: I've found the tire and they are the prosaic LTXen. Or, rather the Michelin Defender LTX M/S as officially called...

    Airing down Michelin LTX's

    I'm a mud tire guy. Tried and true. Studded and siped. Can't go wrong. Right? Or maybe...just maybe I try (again) some LTXs. Can you share your experiences with traction and sidewall quality whence aired down to like 6-10psi for extended times?
