I can’t seem to upload the photos. I will keep trying but a quick explanation may help.

If you turn your steering wheel until you find the closest section that comes to the tyre on the inside of the guard (rear of the front tyre), this needs to be cut off. Remove the wheel, remove the mud flap and internal plastic lining until you can see the metal at this point. Once all this plastic is removed you will have the metal guard that looks like a V that can be cut off back until you hit the solid section of guard. You should be only cutting about 30mm of metal off deep and about 100mm high. Paint with a rust guard after cutting. Removing this will be enough to fit 33s.

I then cut the plastic mud flap to suit and re-screwed it all back on with self-tapping screws. These could be left off all together but I preferred to keep them on if possible.

Fitting 32x11.5 r16 on a D40, possible?

Unread post by white-knight » February 22nd, 2013, 1:11 pm

Just wondering if anyone has tried fitting or knows whether or not you can fit 32x11.5 r16 onto a D40 nav with only 2 inch lift. Ive currently got 265/75/r16 on a 2 inch lift and they never scrub, so thought it could be possible to get away with.

Currently have 4inch body lift fitted with 2inch suspension on my D22. I will be pumping it up too 3inch after I finish with putting my new donk in. I currently run 34" centipedes. No problem at all and have only done small cutting to guards but plan on fitting 36inch tyres next so i will be re fabricating behind it all to fit them

my mate has 2inch lift and 2inch body with 32:8s or 275/75s with wider offset rims and massarging of the front gaurds and removal of mud flaps up front was required to stop rubbing...
gearing is fine but power is pathetic with 33s as we found out when chip wasn,t working oneday...we both have chipitchip/dgas/intercooler/3inch dump pipe mandrel 3inch ex/snorkle etc=double factory rwkws...265/75s would be the max size with no engine mods and dont carry anything...but hey i like my car to move

A mate of mine has just put a 3" lift in his D40 with adjustable upper arms from superior, he then fitted 285/75/16 on +20 offset rims and he has the tyres touching the chassis at full lock.

Is this normal

Cheers.

Putting 33" muddies on STR navara! What's involved?

Unread post by Carsonk » February 5th, 2015, 11:18 am

Hi all

I just recently bought myself a navara and I'm looking to put some 33" muddies on it! I'm not very car savvy and would like to know what is involved lift wise and what would be the cheapest but most reliable way to go about it?

Haven't some of the earlier posts mentioned the biggest tyre you can fit without a lift??

Hi all,

Just thought I'd pass on some info from when I gave my son a hand making some bigger tyres fit on his '86 Navara King Cab.

Josh bought the car about 18 months ago as his first ride ready for when he got his licence (he just got his P's a few months ago).

We were able to fit 33/12.5/16 on with no body lift and no suspension lift, all we did was crank up the front just enough so that the car sat level, about half an inch.

The body work needed a little massaging to stop any rubbing, which involved trimming the rear quarter of the wheel arch and cutting a wedge out of the A pillar and welding it back up and now there is no rubbing.

Unfortunately I'm not sure what the offset is on the wheels, he bought the wheels and tyres second hand (but unused) off a guy in Brisbane who was going to put them on his Cruiser but changed his mind.
