Got or want bigger tyres? Come in here!

Unread post by Nemesis » September 12th, 2014, 4:00 pm

Originally started as a research topic years ago in the utes sections, the tyre topics are so popular it's time to start an new info archive in each sub section, not just for the ute people!

What we want is a collective tried and tested database of info on what works for your model fourby. No hearsay!

So, if you have upgraded your tyre size, let us know what had to be done and whether there is any or no scrubbing. What year/model, how much suspension lift, body lift, wheel off set, guard cutting/massaging, gear changes etc? You get the drift.

Fire away and feel free to post supporting pictures!

Will 80 series wheels fit a 40?

Hi Brains trust.
I've got an 1984 HJ47. will the wide steel wheels off the 80's fit a 40? I know most 6 studs will fit the real but not the front.
Thanks,
NFHU

Got it sorted. Needed spacers on the front to clear all the brake components. Only use around the farm as I think they are illegal on road.
