Hi. My calculator suggests that dairy cows in the UK contribute about 1.5% of the UK's GHG emissions from their methane...I know that's still a lot but I like milk on my cornflakes and in my tea and coffee, as well as blasting around in the D3... Almost 500 UK dairy farmers packed up again last year...

Touch up paint enquiry

Spacesaver spare - size for D3

Hello.
Thinking of getting a spacesaver spare wheel for my D3. How can I work out if those advertised on ebay will fit in place of the 19" classics? eg tyre size T 115/90 R16 92M
Thanks

Thanks All. Happy kids at Christmas now, as I think I'll try the Falkens.

Confirm my D3MT rear tyres are 265/30ZR19 93Y XL

Saw a quote for these at http://www.blackcircles.com/order/tyres/search - £150 each.

Fronts 235/35ZR19 91Y XL - same site quoting £120.

All the best
