Any Tyre and rim suggestions for my Sierra?

Unread post by Lil-zook » December 5th, 2013, 2:29 pm

Hello All,

I have a 1996 SJ80 hard top with a 2 inch body lift. I'm wanting to fit 29 inch tires for general off roading around Western Australia. I'm interested in your suggestions for a rim and tire combo to achieve this. I was also thinking also slightly wider tires. Keep in mind at this point I have not changed the gearing.

Cheers

I have a 95 sj70 with 3" spring lift and it fits 31's easy. You should be able to fit 30's under your sierra with a body lift but I reckon you'd be pushing it to fit 31's under it with out spring lift. go have a look at the 15x7 rims and some 30x9.5's probs set you back about $1000 all up for something half decent.

29's will fit fine, go for a 15x7 rim
30's or 31's will fit on that fine too... just flatten the pinch weld on the rear of the gaurd
save up and do the gearing at the same time
