===================================================================I suspect I've over-tyred my Hilux (actually a '91 VW Taro 2.4D) and
compromised the gearing for heavily-loaded off-piste desert driving -
something I don't want to find out for sure once I'm out there. The car
runs fine on the road but does not have the zip of a Hilux on 205s so
I'm selling 6 x BFG AT KO 235/85 R16s to replace with the next size
down in the BFG AT range - it's the only tyre I'd use in the Sahara
and the best 4x4 AT you can get.
Two tyres are unused, the other 4 have done under 1000 lightly loaded
road miles in the UK.
They would suit a Land Cruiser, Patrol, Pajero, later Hiluxes and any
other six-stud 4x4s. I've used BFG ATs extensively in the Sahara and
they're excellent at 1 bar in the dunes, on rock and wet roads and
everything in between - as good as a Mich XS but without the noise,
punctures, skidding, bounce and high wear.

Hey Lio
Yoe dont give any details about the rims.
I run 285s on 16s with 2 inch lift and no problem other than the speedo and
fuel consumption is off.

I would think 235/85's would look rather small on a lifted 80, especially if
you have the wheel arch flares fitted. I used to have 255/85 BFG MT's on
mine with a similar lift and they looked a bit narrow with the flares,
looked a lot better with the flares off. I now have 255/100R16's and the
arches are nicely full, only a minor rub at the rear on full articulation.
