bt-50 wheel offset

Unread post by pmturnbull » March 24th, 2009, 9:31 pm

just wondering if anyone knows what the bt-50 factory wheel offset is. Just wondering if the wheels I have will fit the new truck. Also if you have fitted 265/75 r16 what rim offset did you get to make it fit. Can't wait till my new toy turns up. I got an 08 runout with the 5 speed auto

hi, i too have just picked up mine,and will be watching replys here, i talked with a guy in toowoomba last week, he put 265/70/16 on with out doing any mods to the suspention, i think the off set is pos 10, but anything from pos 0, will fit.
the first thing i put on was the side steps, i took the vehicle on a dirt road and had mud and crap half way up the front doors....sprays from the front tyres...so the steps will hopefull stop the spray

thanks guys and cammo love what you have done with your bt-50 I will be picking mine up next weekend. I have striped my terry down to near standard so I have the rims of that with a 265/75 r 16 mtr tyre on a 0 offset rim. At first I am fitting airbags in the rear and may just wind the bars up until I get money and I find out my constant load I will carry to work out which leaf springs to buy.

Thanks Matty

I have plans at the moment to keep as a tourer / work car. Meaning at the moment to avoid bog holes that go over your bonnet and rock steps big enough to hit your bullbar on (I guess this is always the plan when you get a new car). I am thinking of building a nudge bar similar to the dakar dmax just in a bigger tube od. I also have plans to build a custom colour coded canopy for work and play.

I ended up getting the bt-50 with a auto box for 35500 drive away and a towbar thrown in.

Hi guys, I have a 2007 BT50 SDX dual cab. I have lifted it 2" with Ironman and fitted 265/75/16 BFG KM2 Muddies, they are on a 7p offset white sunraysia style steel rims. I had to modify the front guards a little so that no scrubbing occurs. Check out some pics in my shed.

After much consideration I Have fitted 15x7 0 offset alloys to my Bt50 with 31/10.5/15s... Fills the guard nicely, Absolutely no scrubbing issues with stock suspension and believe it or not after checking my speed with the GPS thinking it would be out, its pretty well spot on... 31/10.5/15s are a common size in all 4wd tyres that are worth there salt, and are usually cheaper than their 16 inch Brothers...

Yeah mate, The 1069... I went the pro comps cause they were the offset I wanted and are fairly smooth and easy to clean...

I cant see that the Pro-Comps come in 15 x 7 (or with a o offset). Were they a special order Oz bull.

Just bought a 2007 bt50 dual cab 4x4.
Ive already installed longer rear shackles (40mm) and yet to wind up front torsion bar. Im looking at putting 285/75/16 wheels on it but not sure if they will fit? If not do 265/75/16 fit ?
