I need to get a pair of new tyres for my Landy.  The existing tyres are Pirelli Scorpion Dakar 7.50 R 16C.  Seems like all I can find now are metric tyre sizes.  What would be the most appropriate to match my existing tyres?

G'day Ray,

I find the DUNLOP ROAD GRIPPER to be a great tyre (7.50 xR16 ) they can be picked up at a reasonable price as Land Cruisers arriving from Japan often have the standard steel rims replaced with new alloys and bigger rubber.

I'd ask around , you might be lucky.

I reckon they are a great tyre, look good, quiet, and good both on and off road.
