Got or want bigger tyres? Come in here!

Unread post by Nemesis » September 12th, 2014, 4:07 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!

I run 31". I got a 2" lift and still had to get the hacksaw out.

I have just started running 265 75 16's. Had to do a bit of grinding but pretty happy with the result.
I have also just watched my first mr buckaroonie clip, look forward to watching some more, good work Mr T2B!

Also I'm due for tyres and looking at 255/80/16. I'll let you know if they fit

I look forward to hearing how you go. Have you already got the rims? I played around with 16x8 -13 offset but went with 16x7 -10. Pretty much flush with the guards.
I have noticed an increase in drift on undulating roads but I'll have a go at tightening the steering, to get rid of the play, before I make any judgements.
Yours would be less than an inch different in width ( from the stock 235 75 15's) and nearly half an inch less than the 31's it'll be interesting to see how much difference a 1/2 inch can make.

Cheers!
