Got (or want) bigger tyres? Come in here

Unread post by Nemesis » June 4th, 2011, 12:25 pm

Okay guys, we need your collective experience for some research on Rodeo's.

What we need to know is whether you have 33" tyres, or managed to squeeze 35" tyres under your Holduzu, any model.

If so, how much lift required to do the job? Spring lift? Body lift?

Unfortunately, knowing your brothers mates cousins second best mate apparently did x" for x tyres won't cut it. We need facts if possible, what lift fits what tyres, guaranteed.

Your proven advice will go a long way to helping a lot of people!

Cheers

been covered here on the Forum a few times; best option is std rims, 2inch leaf lift, wind the torsion bars up 2-2.5inches, 2inch body lift, some minor guard trimming, and remove the front mudflaps. That will get 33's mtz's in an RA, it does scrub the rear inner gaurd on full articulation tho. If you want more, most people will say you'll hafta get rid of the IFS....

If you fit 33" tyres on a RA rodeo fit V6 auto diffs to bring gearing back to standard.

funny how theres always the 'get rid of IFS' comment in all topics on here about fitting bigger tyres on IFS vehicles.

but yeh 2in suspension and 2in body with guard trim will get 33s.

ya can get a 35 on them but ya wont have any travel or turning.

Clintn & Ducky got it correct.

285 75 16 (33") MT MTZ's on my 03 RA Rodeo.

2.5" Suspension
40mm body
Standard rims
Remove front mudflaps
V6 diffs front and back
Manual hubs to not over stress CV's

Results no broken CV's, slight rubbing on full lock on sway bar other lock on shazy rail, speedo and gearing correct.
