Here the best man/woman are the people that hold the candles.
Google translate is utterly useless when it comes of translating from/to Romanian! :-)

The fact that such beautiful landscape, and some nice forest roads there, are so close to my town was one of the reasons I bought the car, in fact, to be able to explore the surroundings.

That's a photo I've found on the web: the people holding the candles are what we consider the best man/woman and the people on each side of the bride and groom are the "marriage godfather" or whatever! :-)

Or, if you want, in a shorter explanation, the guy/woman who gets his/her hand kissed by the groom/bride after putting the rings! :lol:

You should see translations from other language than English to Romanian! :lol: :lol: :lol:
When it's about other than English, say German, Russian whatever I prefer to have the translation to English rather than directly to Romanian!
Otherwise it's a total non-sense!

Hello again friends,

It's been a while, mainly because I was way too busy at the office, but now I'm again starting to make upgrade plans.
Could you recommend me some good tyres both for asphalt and off-road? I was thinking about BF Goodrich T/A but from what I've seen they only have 245/70 R17 and 225/70 R16.
In the case of the 17 ones do you think they will rub against the plastic wheel cover? Does anyone fited 245 tyres (of any producer) on GV?
Do you have other recommendations for tyres? I'm not looking for "hard-core off-road tyres" since the car is also my commute car (and more important my wife's too! :lol: ) but rather a mix.

Also, what about a CB station strong enough to transmit/receive in the woods too, not only on road? Here the legal power is 4W, is this enough for off road use?

As for the BF T/A tyrew you are on the correct path, son! :romance-caress: :mrgreen:
What dimension are you thinking of fitting? A 245mm width is way too much, I reckon! :shock: :think:


A CB station is just fine for small convoys! This is what the majority of us uses. We talk on RUD ch29 AM (or FM depending on conditions)... ;-)

Currently I have some "mainly street" Conti CrossContact LX 235/65 R17.
As far as I can tell they don't rub the inside even at full turn but I'm not sure about 245s!
The problem as I see it is that BF doesn't make either 225 or 235 in R17 version. Only size that would fit is 225/70 R16, but that would mean I have to get some rims too. :(

The CB is used here mainly to warn each other about police's radar traps but I'd take it to communicate with the park rangers if in trouble. However, I'm not sure if a standard 4W unit would do.

Conti CrossContact from my point of view is a fairly good tyre for all, but not too heavy, conditions!
Garett έγραψε:As far as I can tell they don't rub the inside even at full turn but I'm not sure about 245s!
As for this, the way I see it, is that wider the tyre he more intense that effect will be! If you think about it, it makes sense, since the inside part of a wide tyre comes more into contact with the road. Anyway, this uneven rubbing has not been reported by any any member in this forum, as far as I can remember... :think:

Garett έγραψε:The problem as I see it is that BF doesn't make either 225 or 235 in R17 version.
Take a look at (Vasilis' comment) ;-) The whole topic is about what brand and type of tyres we have. On top there is a poll about this matter.

Garett έγραψε:....... I'd take it to communicate with the park rangers if in trouble. However, I'm not sure if a standard 4W unit would do.
I was also talking about a standard 4W CB station above. I dont know whether you'll be able to communicate with rangers; this is a matter you have to see with the forest service of your area... Here we use the CB's to communicate among us, during excursions in convoys up to max. 30 vehicles.

Thanks!
I've looked about those Nokian tyres but they seem unavailable here.
What do you think about these:

From what I've seen AT2 have a profile which is quite close to BFGs but I don't seem to find them at the dealers here. :(

Great choice also!! :handgestures-thumbup:
I guess that you have to start looking at local dealers' pages first...
