Got or want bigger tyres? Come in here!

Unread post by Nemesis » September 12th, 2014, 4:22 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!

2" lift only.
Upsizing from 205/70 street tyres, I went with a 225/75 AT on standard rims, It fits comfortably without any modifications. It also brought the revs down about 2-300rpm to a more streetable, easier to drive level.
