Not really a Drive Report but a show I got to visit last weekend in Germany...

The show is an annual event in Germany and has all the top brands in 4x4 and outdoor camping equipment...



Unlike many main manufacturers who do not have stands there Suzuki have one of the biggest stands and in conjunction with German dealership Gollek Suzuki DE they have both standard and modified vehicles on display...

Like the look of those Goodrich T/A's for the Vitara, and the winch on the Jimny, well suited.

I have used BF Goodrich all terrains for many years on Suzuki SJ and original Vitara's and they have been great both on and off road and returned a decent wear rate
As Suzuki's have become more refined (Grand Vitara/New Vitara) i have started to notice a few issues with the BFG's not through a fault of the tyre itself but it's application. Being a LT (light truck) tyre the sidewalls are very stiff and not really suited to the later Suzuki's as the stiff sidewalls give a choppy ride with the lighter weight vehicles and lack of ladder frame chassis
I do admit in the early days to running lower tyre pressures to overcome this but with tpms this is no longer an option
Hence my conversion to the Yokohama Geolandar AT-s which i find perfect for the LY Vitara

The purpose of the roof tent is a bit confusing , especially if you have a few years under your belt and that need for a pee in the wee hours. How small does it fold ? Its just amazing what people think up.

I hope that pin was intended, after all, if it ain't punny, it ain't funny.
