    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    Lifted the front end with a spacer kit. rear end standard. Had to chop quite a bit of plastic away and chop the front bulkhead body mount slightly but nothing too drastic. was a bit trial and error until it cleared. Gearing seems ok but the fuel computer is out now due to the speedo under...

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    Had a busy day yesterday, decided to bite the bullet and buy a set of tyres, went with the intention of buying a set of 265/75/16 but came out with a set of 285/75/16s :sunglasses: So had a couple of hours with the grinder and stanley knife trimming bits of wheel arch and body mount off. But...

    Ha! yes they have arrived and been fitted today. So at least i am not running on broken spring anymore:)

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    I am going with the LC80 wheels (zero offset) and know i can get 265 75 16 on with minimal trimming of the front bumper but i am very tempted to go for 285 75 15 :sunglasses:, but i know it will take more mods to fit. The mudflaps are already off so am going to have a look at trimming tomorrow...

    Thanks Andy, just working out what i need to do to get my bigger tyres on :thumbup:

    Real 35'' M/T's...?

    Had a similar issue years ago while competing. One organiser put a 35" tyre limit on all competition cars and had a gauge made to check all cars at scrutineering. Back then the competition tyre of choice was Simex and almost everyone was running 35/12.5/15 simex centipedes but these were falling...

    Yep it seems to be a common problem with modern Toyotas. Its as though they thought they would stop people fitting big tyres

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    I must admit that it did look good on the 285s but i cannot bring myself to chop the body about (just yet) I have fitted a lift to the front which has lifted it about 2.5" and levelled it out but even so, a 285 75 16 would need the body mount modding and possibly the footwells :astonished:.

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    Good :). The Landcruiser wheels i have got from Andy are cone type whereas my hilux rims are spigot so i may have to get new nuts aswell. But then again my nuts are old and rusty (if you pardon the pun!!)

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    I know its not a Land cruiser but know that several members on here have Hiluxs so thats why i have started the thread and maybe we can compare notes. Some 80 series wheels we tried were VERY close to the caliper but with a bit of a tickle with the grinder it will clear (one i tried caught but...

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    Did try a 285/75/16 (33"ish) and it looked the biz, but this would require mods to the body mount and footwell so decided to be sensible (however that may not last!!)

    My 2008 Hilux Invincible

    As some of you know i recently cashed in and sold my defender while prices are daft. That left me needing another work vehicle (which had to be a commercial for tax purposes) so i ended up with a 1 owner 2008 Hilux Invincible It was bog standard apart from a mountain top roll and lock cover...
