  • 305/60/R18 on NT Paj

    Apologies in advance if this topic has already been discussed before, I did a search and didn't to find anything. I have a 2010 NT 3.2 and will be due for some new tyres in the near future. I've got the 18" rims that came with the Vrx, which as most of you seem to know makes tyre choice pretty limited when going bigger,without buying a set of 17's

    So after abit of calling around I managed to find Dick Cepek do a 305/60/R18, which leads me to my question...has anyone fitted this size to their NT/NS etc. Before? I would be very interested to hear your experiences...do they fit in the arch? Scrub etc.?

    That sounds like a very big tyre, 18" normally means lots of $$$$$ maybe a 17" change over might be a better option

      I think you will find they will scrub, even with a lift.

        I have just fitted General Grabber AT2's to our NS Exceed. I picked the 275/65 R18. I think they fit very well. According to the tyre guy I spoke to a 275 is the widest tyre that should be fitted to the 7.5" wide wheels. The tyres only scrubbed on the front edge of the front guard at full lock and a bit of bump (I removed bit the plastic shown in my pics and gave the metal bracket a tweak).

            Thanks for the info mate! The larger tyres look great on your paj, thinking I might go that option now and save any trouble with even larger sizes

            Definitely wasnt doing it to try and get that look haha, they look a bit over the top, was more looking at the size because it was available in the dick cepek fc2's, 32.6" or something like that. I'm more after the extra height gained by a larger tyre than the width, I'm trying to get a 33 that will fit basically

            I came across the coopers ST Maxx in 275/70r18 the other day, which is a 33.1, only issue is the questionable reputation of coopers of late...
