Was it in this thread that the increased road noise from the modern trend to wide, shallow tyres was mentioned? UNECE is working on it:

The Working Party on Noise and Tyres (Groupe Rapporteur Bruit et Pneumatiques - GRBP) is a subsidiary body of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) that prepares regulatory proposals on vehicle noise and tyres for consideration and adoption by WP.29.  To develop those requirements, GRBP conducts research and analysis.

SiL has just acquired a pickup, it is massive, one of those with a full cab (with ISOFIX, natch).

In his defence, he does run a scaffolding company so is one of the few who can justify it.

I'm surprised at the number of these things I see at our allotment site. I wonder if some of the owners think that they're farmers rather than weekend mud wallowers
