That looks fantastic. What size and make of tyre? Is your Caddy lifted or stock height?

I'd love a low Caddy, but I live up a mountain, so this setup is what I'm looking for.

I spend a lot of time in the hills - climbing, biking, walking. So low just wasn't an option plus the traction on normal tyres was gash. It's sitting on standard suspension at the minute although I keep considering a lift kit. I'm running Avon AX7, they're not quite as aggressive as some of the other A/T tyres out there but most of my mileage is on the road so I needed a compromise. They are a massive improvement over standard road tyres. They are 215/65R16 and I've never had a problem with rubbing or catching, even on full lock.

Thanks man. Appreciate the reply and info. I was looking at Falken Wildpeak, but those Avons look like a good shout. Slightly less aggressive than the Falkens but still have presence. And great to hear a first-hand account of someone who's run them on a Caddy.

No worries, mine have been on for just over 2 years now, that must be 25000 miles and there's still plenty of life left in them.

That’s quite the look! As someone who spends a fair bit of time in the country, a practical set up like this is highly appealing.
