It does look very close to the rated wading depth of the Freel2

For mine I have 235 60 18 with a diameter of 29.1"

Looking at the picture it looks like the owner has completely covered the wheel but not the tire.

The mid point of the wheel should be 14.5"

The top of the wheel should be 9" more than that (if they have 18" wheels) = 23.5"

The rated wading depth is 19.7"

So it does look like they slightly over did it.

having said that I would expect my Freel2 to make it thru that water obstacle

I'd say that's cutting it real tight to the tolerances.........hopefully it ain't moving water!

As with any flood water,
We need to take care.
roads edges get eroded and breakup also drain covers can lift,
so what may look safe to wade could well have hidden dangers,
I Just hope that doesn't go on the market with undisclosed history.

If you need to wade through any "still" flood water,
Please use a wading pole (carry it in the car and mark it at 500mm)
use it in front as you walk checking for any danger remember what could be
walkable may have a 8ft plus drain waiting for you. Shocked
never walk into any flowing water, 1ft deep is capable taking you off your feet.
Stay safe guys. Thumbs Up

PS ^^ when I did the water awareness course with Kent S.A.R
we were informed that in towns it will contain 80% plus of sewage!! I.A.M. F1rst Driver.

Most likely a little too fast, easy to panic and think the sooner out the better Big Cry Regards

Very good point there Dave - although I wouldn't walk it out, for those that do, a stick is a great idea to keep you safe. Learned to drive in 2011.
Bought a Micra - great little car
"Upgraded" to Kia Sportage - hated it
Proper upgrade to FL2 TD4 GS 60 reg Facelift - tailgate paint issues, fuel gauge rewire, transfer box failure at 36k miles
