What tyres are going to fit?

Unread post by Arin » May 27th, 2015, 7:50 pm

Hi all looking at getting the suspension and tyres sorted out on my dads Lux

It's a 2009 kun26r sr model

I have been looking at this guide and the 32 inch options looks good to me
http://www.vehiclemods.net.au/toyota-hi ... ts-and-how

Going to run a 2 inch OME kit


What rims should I get for bfg 32x11.5 r15?
It says it will fit on the stock sr5 rims (15x7 +30) or should I be looking at 15x8 or a different offset

Many Thanks
-Arin

Hello everyone,

I am newish to this forum and new to the offroading hilux community. I apologise if I am asking the wrong question at the wrong place. Feel free to move if required or please redirect me if it is not too much to ask :)
Anyways I really want to make my 2003 Hilux higher. Currently everything is stock (as far as i know). I read and heard that lifting and bigger tyres will cause problems. Anything i need to keep out for? Where should i start?
I found this: http://www.trucktrend.com/cool-trucks/0 ... solutions/ but i barely managed to understand half of it. What are the real problems?

Thanks

You should start be knowing why you want to lift your HIlux.
To look cool? or improve its offroad capability?
Do you need it to have awesome offroad capability or just better than standard?
How much do you want to spend?

Our model Hilux has a serious capability restriction ................ torsion bar Independent Front Suspension. Its probably the most useless suspension type for a 4wd. But that doesn't mean the vehicle is useless.
You can have the whole front end totally re-engineered so that its short-comings are overcome, but it will cost you big dollars. If you try to lift it without all that re-engineering, the geometry will just simply fail and the end result will be broken components. So like most 4wds, you need to make a compromise.

My suggestion. Get yourself a value for money 2" suspension kit, and then you can fit 31" x 15 or 245/75R16 tyres. That's a pretty good combination that wont throw the geometry out to component damaging limits. Then, if you want to fix the vehicle's offroad shortcomings, install a auto locker in the front diff. This will allow you to take the vehicle offroad with confidence. It will not be able to tackle the real big holes and step-ups like a coil sprung 4wd wagon, but it will climb through, up and over anything that your 31" tyre height will allow.
Drive it with an understanding of its capabilities, and then you will not be disappointed when it can't perform like a Monster-Truck. Always remember, a 4wd does not move forward or backwards when it's sitting on its diffs or chassis; tyres, suspension and lockers make for nothing when the tyres don't touch the ground.

Hope that helps.

Tyre & Wheel size for Hilux

Unread post by BATTIG » May 26th, 2016, 8:47 pm

Just lifted my Hilux 2" and looking to put on some new rubber and wheels.
It is a 2010 SR KUN26R duel cab tray back.
I'm looking at putting on 31" BF Goodrich AT's.
Just chasing the wheel and tyre measurements for an order?
Not sure about the offset for these newer Hiluxes.

Cheers,
Dom
