33's or 35's on a stock 76 wagon???

Unread post by Franzinkin » October 23rd, 2013, 5:50 pm

Hi there!

Ive gotten a lot of helpful info from you guys on here but now its time for my first post! Anyway ive just bought a 09 76series V8 wagon and the tyres are rooted so this is the first thing i need to do, its got 16" x7" sunraisers on it so i was just going to buy a set of bfg's mud terrains in 235/85 R16 because i am in WA and going to be driving it back to brisbane where i live and will be lifting the suspension an that over there. But i know eventually ill be wanting 33's or 35's so my question is am i able to fit them under stock unlifted suspension??
Cheers in advance! :)

285/75/16s which are close enough to a 33 fit fine. I had them on my 76 for a while with stock suspension but lifted 2in now.

You can but I've read on here somewhere that they need to be put on a 8in rim to be legal.

just to clarify...

33's will fit on stock sussy *pending on offest of wheels*

35's will fit aslong as you get a 2" lift and ZERO offset wheel.

you may also have to space the rear wheels out like on the 79's other wise they rub the chassis <<< anyone with a 76 clarify this for me?

Thanks for that mate! I think i will just be fitting the standard size tyres for the trip back to brisbane then once over there ill go the 35's and a 4" lift or so. Will be better on juice for the 5000 odd km trip as well (although my heavy foot wont help much) haha.

35 will fit with -13, 305's will fit with -14....BOTH WITH REAR WHEEL SPACERS!

"rossimo

So the 285/75/16s did not rub?
What was the offset of the rims and did you have to use rear wheel spacers?

No but I never really went hard/flexed it much with that setup, came very close to the mudflaps on the front though. 16x8 0 offset rims. No rear wheel spacers
