I'm sure I have a 2 inch lift and with new tires - 285/75 r 16 I found that the tires do catch on front mudflaps when turning - cant recall if it is the inside or outside of the tire rubbing - but who needs mudflaps.
GU or GQ?

I have 33s with 2 inch lift and bits of the tupperware keep flicking off.

305/70r16 (IIRC)

OK on the road and around town but when flexing through full lock corners she is a rubbin'

That is my worry... I can still fix the problem with an angle grinder on the hangover bits, but the section between the wheels must stay as is. I can also still afford to lengthen my wheelbase if needs be. But would like to be planning these things now already.... So if anybody has an old 35 tyre, or two, laying around, please let me know.

I am considering 35" tekkies on my 4.8 (2004 pre-facelift).

is daar n groot verskil tussen pre-facelift en facelift 4.8's?
Dis vir my moeilik om te verstaan hoe 33" tyres nie pas op facelift 4.8 nie? :think:

Is dit Nissan rims of aftermarket? miskien snaakse offset? is jy seker dis die mudflaps wat vang, nie miskien binne die wheelarch nie? daars is so skroefie wat mens kan stel om te verhoed dat die wiel te skerp draai en dan vang...

Standard Nissan Patrol 16inch Steelies as per the day it left the factory. No wheel spacers and diffs slightly off center to the right due to the lift (2" TJM - can't find the part numbers for the springs right now). Catches the front mudflaps when turning, remove mudflaps then no problem. Only happens when tires are new - take 3/4 mm off the tread and no problem. Add another inch (ie.a as in 35") and will not just catch them but rip them off. Patrol already has a horrible turning circle , adjusting the limit screw would increase it even more .

Use it don't use it.
