Hi Pdiddy,

You can get some ATs in 18". Mickey T ATZ 4-ribs come in 275/65/18, or 32" in old money. Hence you might not fit them without a bit of a lift and perhaps a bumper trim. Cooper ATRs come in 265/60/18 which is stock size, BUT not in LT, they also do 275.65/18 in LT. I'm not sure about BFG or Bridgestone.

The 18s are pricey - generally about $500 a corner. You can change down to 17s for a better and cheaper selection, but there are no aftermarket steel rims that fit (offset is -46). You can get alloys which fit from Avanti, if you get your new tyres and rims in one hit as a package you can probably change to 17s for the price of a good set of 18" ATs.

Cheers, Charlie

Thanks CeeJay. I s'pose that price doesn't really bother me, as my Mrs is salary sac'ing the Paj, and I have owned a vehicle that had low profile 20's on it at $650 per corner, so am used to bending over for the tyre man!LOL
My man concern was that if we wanted to go beach driving etc, how would the tyres perform being narrower in the side wall? I imagine there would not be as much footprint available after air down as a smaller wheel/tyre combo would give.

You're dead right Pdiddy - 18s don't bag out as well as 17s, give less flotation on sand, are more prone to sidewall damage, and more likely to damage a rim. If the money issue isn't a biggie, I'd get JAX or someone to give you 5 x 17" BFG ATs plus 5 new rims, and give you a dummy invoice for the tyres to claim back the whole cost on the lease. The lease company doesn't care so long as the lease is in credit.

Unfortunately the VRX didn't work out as the description from the dealer was not correct. This vehicle is an ex-renter and has had a hard life, but that would have been nice to know before we spent half our day travelling to see it.
Anyway, we had a look at an 08 NS Exceed, which was pretty tidy, but they wouldn't come to the party.
It looks like the Paj is the way we will go, as they have so much more "Bang for Buck" than the Prado when it comes to creature comforts. And I can't believe how cheap they are to insure.
Have found an 09 Platinum in black living in Sydney that may be the go. Now just need to figure out the logistics.

OK, good luck with it mate. If you do end up getting it from a dealer it's worth asking him if he'll swap the rims for 17s - generally they will do this, as they can stick the 18s on a GLS or GLX and charge a premium for them.

Sounds like a plan.
Does anyone here live near this guy?
My Car Auto sales: we are just near that big Bunnings Warehouse at Ashfield with the big clock tower (Wattle Street/Frederick Street intersection) approx 20 minutes from the CBD (right next door to the 1st Choice Liquor).Corner of Northcote & 255 Parramatta Road, Haberfield.
If you are driving past, this is where the Platinum Paj is, and I would love someone to look at it for me seeing as I am in Ipswich Qld.
Have had a look at the specs on it, but can't seem to find the reversing camera, sat nav or dvd player that should be there.

NS SWB Pajero 'X' with leather seats and numerous airbags, plus lightweight but strong alum roof rack, roll out awning, additional long range fuel tank (65L), Glind shower, pair IPF driving lights, ARB deluxe bullbar and winch, UHF radio, and car kit and mobile phone.
Have kept the 18" rims and tyres only because I couldn't get a decent deal in going to 17" but with some luck I now have three spares. I travel widely in the Pilbara and Kimberley of WA and Flinders Ranges last year.

GDay all,
Ive seen alot of aftermarket sliders for NT Pajero's and also the Bush Skinz 4x4 steps (which look fantastic).
Can anyone suggest another manufacturer in the Northern NSW, SEQLD region that produce steel sliders, that have a step shape suitable for the elderly to use to get in?

My old man and i went out the other day (He owns an NT Pajero, i own a 80 Series Landcruiser), unfortunately we did some minor damage and now he needs to upgrade a few things.
First he will be lifting it, then some sort of steps, then perhaps a bullbar, then i think probably some bashplates so he can hit some hard stuff!!
I look forward to your suggestions!!

I picked myself (my wife i should say) up a 08' NT Pajero (work lease car), recently. Ex-police vehicle, i know everyones thoughts on these but it has been a very neat and reliable car so far.

It is in the deep blue colour with the smartbar, winch and lightforce spotties.

Just had our 3rd child, reason for buying the Paj, as an addition to my Zook Jimny.
Cant wait to start the mods, hoping to replace the barwork. Get roofcage, extra lift and AT's and diesel chip. Keeping it a simple as a tourer for the camper trailer we are planning on purchasing.

Hoping to get pics up soon. Oh wait heres one from my mobile.

Hi all.
I was just wondering whether anyone has fitted an airlocker to the front of their Paj. I am thinking of putting one in to compliment the rear factory diff lock. I am not sure whether this will give me much more traction than relying on the traction control that is standard in the VRX.
Cheers.

Sounds like a good idea, and I would like to do that when I buy the Paj, but doesn't that muck up the speedo and the trip computer? (because of the different size it would affect the accuracy)

Not really, as the difference in overall diameter would be a small amount.
EG
265/65 R17 - 776.3mm
265/60 R18 - 775.2mm

And anyway the speedo as standard measures over by about 6-7%. If you fit 275/65/17s the speedo comes back to almost spot-on.

Hey Guys,

We've just joined up with the forum and we have a 2010 Pajero 3.2 TD ACTiV. The only thing we've done to the car so far is a duel battery sys, with a 47L ARB fridge in the back and a set if Cooper ST 265/70/17 which seem to grip quiet nicely. We've just ordered and ARB delux Bar and OME shocks. Dose anyone know if you can get Steel side steps and rear bar. Buth TJM and ARB have no rear bars and only alloy steps. We also want to get some more experience and don't really know anyone that goes out around Wollongong, South Coast. What would you suggest? Are clubs a good way? I've heard mixed things. We just want to have fun and enjoy the out doors and the family four wheel drivening.
