Its hard to tell from your pics but they look like standard collie alloys sitting almost flush with the wheel arches , which suggests skinny tyres and wheel spacers ?

Looks pretty good though so maybe you just want a similar sized tyre with an aggressive sidewall , cooper stt , toyo open country , BFG KM2 , Mud Rage off the top of my head

Shayne if I didn’t want to change the rim size what’s the largest tyre size I could potentially put on it ?

I think 265/70 on landcruiser 80 alloy rims is the subtle choice and it looks like it should have come from the factory new looking that way , Andy should be able to confirm ?

275/70/16's on 80 series wheels ( 0 offset) on standard suspension.

I've sold it now. With that set up there was the slightest rub. This was cured with a 2" lift, it didn't catch then. I did like it but it was noisy compared with the 120 I replaced it with.

Different strokes huh , I must assume that the very same things which convinced you to swap convinced me I never will .

I don't know much about Pajero's but at a glance I'd guess 15x10 with a -35 offset and 35x12.50 tyres .

We have similar tastes :icon-wink:

Different strokes indeed Shayne, diverse opinions are what makes this forum such a good place for discussions.

If I want rough but tough I'll take a 60 out with Milner springs.

I don't Karl , it should be well known by now that i don't think of my phone as a camera so every on the road pic comes from somebody else (probably Nick) .

I hear you Andy , I reckon a 60 series with my 24 valve engine and manual gearbox would fit me like a glove , though i've never driven a 60 .

Goes back to my bike days i guess and the realization that theres not enough road to feel the speed on a full fairing race bike , but a jacked up scrambler on knobbly tyres can offer the same grin factor at much lower speeds .

Passengers are always shocked when i say oops i crept up to 90mph in the 80 , its so smooth it just doesn't feel fast , which of course is a good thing but .......... well you get what i mean i'm sure .
