Tyres

I have a Sterling 2009, think its a 25 ft. I am going to change tyres and would like to ask if anyone has experience with going higher in profile and possibly wider. I'd like to get more treat on the road and increase profile height to improve clearance. Any guidance appreciated. Cheers, Andy

Andy your speedometer will read slow when you do this and also beware that you will have to remeasure your height for when you go under bridges. Also this will effectively change your gear ration and will reduce power or mileage.
