16" rims - tallest tyre available.

Post by hugejp » 02 Aug 2018 12:51

Howzit guys,

I am looking at doing a 3" or 4" suspension upgrade to my 4.8 GU

I am trying to find the tallest possible tyre to fit under the troll.

Any real world experience out there?

The tyre shops seem to all say that 16" rims are limiting my options & the tallest thus far works out to about a 34.5" tyre...

Any info would be appreciated...

:thumbup:

Get a few 15" Beadlock Rims from 4x4rims.co.za :biggrin:
