  • 2" lift so what rims/tyres ?

    So lifting the NH 2" this weekend and am in need of new tyres. Just wondering if I should go bigger than 31" tyres, say 32" Maybe even 33's ??

    Im looking at a suspension lift next weekend too, and i have read on another thread that 33's should fit, but can scrub on the mud flap, so it needs to be taken off or cut.

      I have just fitted 33's - with a 2" GQ lift they are brilliant. Definitely the way to go. I've just posted some pics of my build up.

        No rubbing or anything?

        Spose another question would be with the bigger tyres does that have an effect on the acuracy of the speedo?

          just watch for the soldiers of commerce, In QLD the police are on the hunt for $$ and a lifted 4x4 with no mod plate and many lifts (sus,tyre,body) is money in the bank.

          And if you have ever belonged to a gentleman's motorcycle club its 15 years in the hole with a pink tracksuit.

          only half joking.

            No rubbing at all. The speedo is about 5% out - so at 95 I am actually sitting at 100, I watch the GPS a little closer now.

            Here's a pic of what it looks like with the lift and 33's.

            In WA they seem a bit more lenient and I haven't even copped a sideways glance. Seems they're more interested in Patrols and Toyota's.

              I run 32" with no lift and no issues on an NL. They actually make the speedo more accurate than the 30" standard tyres.

              Am about to do the GQ conversion when the new shocks arrive though.
              98 NL GLS - ARB compressor, LED conversion on all interior lights, GME UHF, Pioneer SD Stereo, Alloy bull bar, 13,500lb winch, Dual Batt, switch and outlet panel in place of useless centre pod, rear drawers

                Same, 0 offset 15" sunnies with 33 Bighorn-764 Muddies, just flicks the inner soft flap on full lock, nothing to worry about at all, and yeah, speedo is slightly out.

                  What about the width of the 33's, 12.5", using the original rims with the NH plastic flares i think i'm still going to be a bit wide?
