tyre size on 80

John,
As others mentioned if u look at 80scool or i8hmud u'll spend days
researching the choice of tyres. The sizes are more set eventhough u get get
different people with lotsa different ideas.
Basically the largest size u can fit under std OME is 285/75/16. Thats
normally with a 1.5-2" lift (via OME springs) over stock.
That can depend on what u normally carry on your truck.
If u're not on OME springs and are still stock then it will depend on how
'saggy' the springs are - this is also relevant if u buy a 2nd hard pair.
285's 'can' rub if u're doing some serious 4x4ing and depends on terrain,
articulation etc.etc.etc.
However most people don't have an issue. Can also depend if u drop your bump
stops (attached under frame and above wheel (more noticable on back as
fronts have different setup) further than normal or if they're even there (I
had lost one of mine and didn't notice for awhile :))
Thats also presuming u stick with std wheels/offset etc. If u push them
further out (retro aggressive look and normally only used for the serious
4x4 guys who go large tyres, large lift, truck getting higher and hence push
out wheels to give more stability) then they will rub in a different spot
(and if really far out then they pop your flares off :).
I have 34x16 Simex (I believe they measure 33.5" with my trusty tape
measure) for offroading and they will very occasionly rub. I have a 1.5-2"
lift (Lovell springs outa Aussie) but they have sagged over the years and
hence the rubbing.
Also note that 285 is not an 'exact' size. If u get several tires from
different manfs (and even within one manf range) u'll often find they will
vary by .5-1" from stated height. Why - who knows but its common to see guys
on the groups quoting actual size when they mount them. Also need to be
comparing new tyres as opposed to several hundred miles of wear.
Not really any any other (OEM) wheel from another truck make that will fit
80s. Was a suspicion of Pajero's and maybe a Mitisubshi that might. Didn't
hear that Hilux fitted (may have on stud sizes/positioning - PCB) but not on
offset?
Certainly if u can figure out what other truck wheels will fit then that
wides the pot for 2nd hard stuff and scrapyard visits.

Hi guys
Just on the subjest of wheels, What is the size of the biggest wheels you
can put on the 80. At the moment they are 265x70x 15 on mine the original
ones.
Is there any particular wheels that are suitable from other vehicles.

Renate,
Offsett - the distance from the mounting flange of the wheel to the inner
rim of the wheel. Too much / little and you run the risk of a front tyre
fouling the axle / bodywork on full lock / max suspension compression.
Stud pattern - how many studs hold the wheel on - 6 on an 80 - 5 on a 100
series - and the PCD - pitch circle diameter of said studs ie the diameter
of a circle you would have to draw to touch all the studs.
I must add I haven't bought any of the 767 wheels - just another avenue -
like the other guys I would look for some s/h ones.
Regards Gareth.
Gareth
Could you elaborate what you mean by "the correct offset / stud pattern"?
Renate
American Racing AR - 767 Part No 6883 -16 X 8. ?70.50 each inc VAT, from
www northhantstyres the UK importer - none in stock at present
These have been mentioned several times by Jon Held - he of the Scooby Doo
floormats !! They have the correct offset / stud pattern for the 80 series.
He and and a few others seem happy with them.

I had on mine with standard suspension 285/75/16, looked a bit weird
eheheh. After I isntaled an OME minimal lift 5cm looked very nice. Only
better if the offset of wheels came a bit off, but nice anyway.
A friend with an 80 had 305/70/16 with lift already, where ok to, tires
didnt touch anything.
Since the 285/75/16 is a bit taller (very little) and if ok on a standard
suspension, so the 305/70/16 ill fit ok to.
About touching inside "wheels housing" when tourning for example, I think
it will be ok to for sure. 305/0/16 is only wider, matamaticaly, 1cm for
each side and if with suspension lifted of my friends 80 dind thouche when
tournig I almost sure the same it appens if you have sandard suspension,
since on this point the, taller tires, are the issue and that is proved that
the 285 (taller) work ok either.
Actualy I have 305/70/16 MTR goodyear on my plain standard Patrol GR
3.0Di... Yes I know dont have my beloved 80 at the moment. My hart are on
those hdj80s, that are very rare here in Portugal an importing them is
particaly impossible, since I surely will be burned off my wallet by
taxes... :-(
