VDJ - Which offsets needed for wheel track correction??

Unread post by Stevie mac » May 19th, 2018, 9:21 pm

Hi all. i have recently purchased a vdj76 2011. i have grown up 4wdriving on the beach in my trusty old Hilux which was unstoppable in the sand and always pointed straight. however after taking my new 76 to the beach the crab walking was quite bad and frequent, she always seemed to have 3 wheels in the tracks and the 4th wheel just doing its own thing in the middle. dont get me wrong, the cruiser didn't struggle but seemed to be pushing more sand than what was necessary. so i plan on correcting this problem by putting negative offset rims on the rear with 16x8 rims.

can someone who has done this before or someone who knows please tell me which offset i will be looking at needing to get?

thanks guys.

Check out this thread & the linked vid:

Not exactly what you asked, but might be worthwhile regardless ;)

Then there's these:

viewtopic.php?f=76&t=112285&p=1769641&h ... t#p1769641

viewtopic.php?f=76&t=160139&p=1804644&h ... t#p1804644

viewtopic.php?f=76&t=120390&hilit=Offset#p1483364

You might hafra do a fair bit of reading to find the specific bits you are after, but it's all in there somewhere! Good Luck! :thumb:
