The next question is... are 35" tyres available on a 15" rim??
For sure! and like you said, they look great. Unfortunately sold a set of 15"s steelies with 35"s on earlier this year dude.

So...

A buddy on the auzzie site told me that some early 4.8s had "small" brakes as per the 4.5 & 4.2.

My 4.8 is 2004 pre-facelift so there is a chance I guess.

Anyone know how to tell them apart??

I recon test fitting a 15" rim would be the best way to know, I just dont have one on hand...

Any info?
