Enjoy the trip and have faith in what the car can do. Remember tyre pressure and momentum.

Which model Geolandar have you got on at the moment?
I currently run 225/60/17 G012 Geolandars on my Outback.
Previously I had Hankook Dynapro HP on. That is the highway profile but, with some off road ability. I was extremely happy with them on road.
I have also used the Goodyear Wrangler HP on my previous Outback, also a very good tyre.

I am very happy with the off road ability of the G012, though they are now called the G015.
On road handling is a little Jelly Totts like though and, fuel consumption is up from the Hankooks.

Hi there. I have just joined your forum.
I need to replace my tyres which are Yokohama Geolander 225/55R17's. Chatting to someone at Suburu, he mentioned that I should look at Kumho tyres as a suitable replacement as they are more affordable, of similar quality and have perhaps greater sidewall strength. Use will be mainly onroad with not too severe offroad.
Has anyone had experience with these tyres and are there other makes I should look at?
Many thanks.

welcome, don't stress about the sand, the Forester makes it really easy.

when we went to Atlantis Sand Dunes I would only deflate once I feel it was really needed.  :o There was only 1 time that i can remember that I went the entire day only deflating to 1.7bar, and that was to climb a big dune, rest of the time I was running on 2.3bar and had no problems.... ;D

Thanks guys.
I am really excited to do the trip. A little nervous, since it will be my first time on beach sand ;D
I have read as much as i can on tire pressure and as many tips as i can find. So it should be good.

Hello Fellow Forester Friends
I have recently acquired 2 x Foresters, both 2003's, one white with sun-roof and the other silver. both have 220k Kms on the clock. I had both UNI chipped and remapped by Mario and his guys in Polokwane. They did a superb job since they have a 4x4 dyno in their workshop, which resulted in a +12% improvement in both torque and BHP!!
My wife and I were both Happy-Chappies until my car the white one had the tensioner pulley for the air-con pump seize, causing the belt to break.  This damaged the timing belt housing and bits of the 'fan belt' got tangled with the timing-belt and I now have a motor with several bent Inlet and Exhaust valves.
I discovered this myself, when I took the motor out and removed the cylinder heads.
Any advice on the most cost effective way to repair and get the car back on the road?
