    Im into off-roading too, as Benny says above the early ones are the best !! An early defender may be badged as just a 90 or 110, etc so keep an eye out.

    Not sure why you posted this in styling?? (now moved)

    If you mean are the tyres road legal then yes they should be if they have a speed rating, We used Bronco Grizzly Claw tyres on our off roader when we had it..

    big tyres not a problem providing they do not protrude beyond the wheel arch, i.e if they stick out further then they become illegal and the nasty men will get you
