  • 33"

    Hi all,

    I just finished putting in my new shocks and springs the other weekend. This has given me a 1.5 to 2" hight increase.

    Well my tyres have seen better days and its time for new rubber. So my question is will 33's fit with no probs given my lift. Also is there any reason to go to 16" rims and what is the same hight as 33s in the 2xx/70or75/16 measurement.

    Cheers Jack

    G'Day as far as 15" and 16" rims I found it gives you a little more room around the brakes (disks) with 16" rims wether this matters or not I'm not sure

    As for tyre size 265/75/16 are a 32" so I assume the 285/75/16 is a 33" give or take a mm. Hope this helps.

      Hi Jack,

      You can fit 33's, but expect alot of scrubbing even with the slightest amount of articulation. I currently run 265/75/16 (31.9) on my paj & are looking at 33's but am sure they will scrub when offroad. I also have a 2" lift & have cranked torsion bar.

      In regard to 15" or 16" rims, 16's look better but tyre cost is much higher than for 15".

        Thanks for the info guys!

        Its my understanding that 285/75/16 would be about 11.2" wide(got this from a cm to inch converter on the net) making them about an inch thinner than 33x12.5 wile being roughly the same hight. Is this correct?

        Another thing I will be getting an AT tread patter. All you AT trye peoples out there could you help me out by telling me what brand you have(or had in the past) and if its crap or good. I'm sorta looking at price as much as performance (student moneys sux!). Wile I dont want to buy a cheap tyre that rates poorly, if theres a cheap option out there that can claim reasonable performance then thats the tyre for me! Compromises suck but meh student budget only gos so far.

        Again cheers for the input

        Jack

          16" tyres are more expensive, but they also have higher load ratings; this means that for any given combination of vehicle load / tyre pressure / road condition / road speed the 16" tyre will be further from it's limits, and therefore less stressed. In other words, 16" tyres are tougher.

          Allan, I've got 285/75-16s with a 50mm body lift, and don't have scrubbing problems. You've effectively got a 30/35mm body lift (depending on which figures you read) so you shouldn't have much trouble, if any.

          FWIW, a few years back I asked a rep of a major tyre distributor which size of tyre is most common in outback centres. He researched their shipping records, and 265/75-16 (32 x 10.5 R 16) is a clear winner - so when you're desperate for a replacement tyre, that's the size you're most likely to find.

          Cheers,

            I know the 33's will fit Scott, but am not keen on all the rubbing that will happen when off road.

              255/85/R16 are a nice tyre size that equal out to 33's, they are alot thinner than most 33's and therefore reduce the scrubbing.

              Downside is that only 2 or 3 manfacturers actually make tyres in that size.

                  Yes, hitting body / chassis / suspension components. I have zero problems at the front, and driver's side rear rubs the inside of the tyre on the body side of the wheel arch at maximum articulation - doesn't seem to happen on the passenger's side. I only know from the marks in the wheel arch - I don't hear it.

                      Well, Redpaj & a LBD thought we would see if 33's were possible for the paj.

                      We fitted some worn 35's & they were fine.

                            Just the 2" suspension lift, but the NL GLS also had a factory body lift standard unlike the earlier models.

                            Just purchased my 33's today, so will post up a pic tomorrow.
