  • 15x8 rims for a Gen 2 pajero..offset?

    Heya guys, done a bit of research on the net but cannot seem to find the answers I need so thought I'd post here.

    I have a gen 2 pajero (NL??), that I'm thinking about fitting some 32x11.5x15s to.

    I am looking to buy some 15x8 spoked steel rims to fit these on, but am not to sure on what offset I require? I just want something that is not going to cause gaurd rub.

    I assume that these pajeros will be able to clear 32's with standard height suspension?

    Any help is much appreciated

    Personally, I would choose a zero offset rim. This will provide a slightly wider track than factory alloys, and help correct changes to the scrub radius that come from fitting taller tyres.

      If your going to buy new rims then I would agree with NJ SWB.
      I used to run the same size tyre your after on the standard Paj rims without any issue.

              My NL Escape (GLX Escape) came stock with 15" and has smaller front brakes than the upper spec models.

                To be honest, im not too sure what model it is. Still a new vehicle to me.

                Have been told it is a NL but one of you boys might be able to confirm what model it is? Is a high top model and has very basic interior, vinyl floor, seats and door trims. Wind up windows e.t.c.

                I believe the rims are 15x6.

                Heres a pic off the auction that I bought the vehicle from.

                    Correct me if I am wrong but GLS and Exceed need 15x8 with -20 offset due to brakes. The rest of the models can all go with the 15x8 with 0 offset.

                    I was looking at getting 16x8s for my escape and it seems 0 offset is the go (sits in a bit more and avoids the need for extra on the flares)

                      Sorry, that's wrong. Gen 2 GLS and Exceed came with 15x7 or 16x7, with +10 offset.

                        That would mean that you would need approx -15 for an 8" rim to sit the same distance from the strut/brake. Pretty sure that's the reason for requiring cruiser offset on 8" for those models.

                          Brakes sit inside the rim - they aren't affected by offset.

                          Have a look at the front end of a Gen 2 - there is no "strut" anywhere near the inside of the rim.

                          I've had 16x8 with zero offset on my NJ for about 9 years. They're even engineered.

                            I find myself in a very similar position with my 05/94 NJ and this thread has been great.

                            So pros and cons between a 15" and 16" rim?
