Patrol Tyre Sizes.

Unread post by LiftedLux » July 8th, 2007, 4:15 pm

My Question is:

Will 35's fit under a GU without guard cutting? If not, how much modding is required? If they will, what the biggest you can go before heavy modding is required?

Cheers

Yep, but you'll need a 2" susp and 2" body lift as a minimum. Depends on tyre width and rim offset too as to whether they'll rub the mudflaps and flares on full lock or artic.

That's a 33" OD, it will slip onto a standard vehicle.

Yeh my brother-in-law had a 3 inch susp lift and a 2 inch body lift, and he had 35" radial baja claws, had a bit of rubbing on full flex, but the flex was outstanding, so yes it can be done, just the 35's are a bit illegal....
