I am trying to get onto the MROC archive gallery but it appears to have been hidden, access on request.

I am sure there may have been a xxx CUE reg 2a in that, I think it was a sand coloured 109 if my memory serves me correctly.

My 58 s2 in Switzerland

Welcome to the Forum anyway, and that's a great-looking S2 - and not a bad picture either.....

I happen to have an early Trooper wheel handy. 235/75 15. 28ish diameter.
Lots of older Japanese 4x4s used 15”.

Google will answer your tyre size queries , 235, 70 r16s are about 28 ins od,
The wheels well they would look good painted but not all *&%^$ and briny,
If you feel you can't live with shame and vilification of the purists  I will swap you for tubless defender steel rims,
Chris

I’ve just bought a set of Wolfrace Slot Mag alloy wheels for my 1969 2a 88” SW. ... They are 7.00” x 15” wheels. What size tyres will I need that are similar to 235/70r16?!

I'm sure there are other sites with similar functionality, but this is one I have stored.
Hopefully, by entering different tyre sizes you can see which 15 &16 inch sizes give a minimal difference.

Are you aware that Series  2 and 3 models destined for the USA were fitted with 15" wheels?
That was a more common wheel size in the USA, so there were a wider option of tyres available.
The original LR fit is listed as Road wheels 6L x 15 in., Goodyear ‘Ultra Grip’ tyres 7.10 in. x 15 in., which may give a starting point.

As Gibbo103 intimates, you may also have to work across the divide that is Imperial tyes sizes v Metric tyre sizes.

Not all tyres made to a given size have the same Turns per Mile, after selecting a tyre size you should look at the tyre manufacturers web site to establish the actual TPM.

Regards.

I have similar sized wheels on 300tdi discovery, but they are steel modular. It has 31x10.5 r15 which fill the wheel arch quite well. I should see how they look on the dormobile.

I see you are new to the Forum, and this may seem a strange 'welcome', but I also realise it is not obvious to a newcomer that the PoM competition is for pictures taken during the Month in question; in this case May 2021.

From your Introduction post I've formed the impression that your Switzerland visit occured earlier than that.

Sorry, either if I've misread your Introduction post, or seem a little 'severe'.

Regards.

I’ve just bought a set of Wolfrace Slot Mag alloy wheels for my 1969 2a 88” SW. Not rivet counter correct by any means but I like them anyway as a period aftermarket fitment. They are in need of a refurb which will be done in due course, but they haven’t come with any tyres. They are 7.00” x 15” wheels. What size tyres will I need that are similar to 235/70r16?!

Pic below for reference!
