They are like just under an inch bigger arnt they?

Jason

Yep an inch overall diameter, remember that is half an inch radius though so dont measure an inch around the existing tyre.

yeh i wont lol...otherwise it will be like have an extra 2 inches. so wot clearense on either side of the tyre do you reckon?

Jason
22-07-2010, 09:08 AM
That I have now? The front of the rear tyre goes close but doesn't rub when articulating, The front tyre doesn't rub at all, didn't need to modify the mudguards either.

Tyre Power at Brighton (SA) dont recommend fitting them as they will scrub a bit - up to you but

i just put a set of 265/75 R16 (32" or so close there is no difference) BFGs on mine and they don't rub anywhere. i know they are different tyres but same-same.

Hey guys,

this is my first post, but I was looking into the atz too. I went for some kumho
KL71 MT's instead. They are a sic looking tyre and perform great on road for a MT. Low road noise too. Ive got rid of the stock rims which are a offset 44 and got offset 30 steel desert rats. The size I got was 265/75/R16 and I have not got my 2inch lift kit yet. They rubbed a little with full lock but just a quick mod to the front mud flaps and it clears quite easily.

when you say you got them and they are bit noisier after 10,000klms do you mean the m/t atz's or the the kuhmos??

i just got 265/75/16 fitted today and i have standard height and no rubbing or any issues at all, but when off road and front wheel on full lock going up a hill i would say it rubs on back of mud flap but quick trim and its sorted, what a difference its made I'm wrapped as can be with them, i see people complaining about power loss but i can hardly see a difference at all maybe the slightest in take off but not really noticeable, my opion

They look awesome. I'm considering sticking a set of 5 or 4 ribs on my nav, but not sure if it'll cause dramas before the lift kit :S. As i think it will be a little while until the lift kit comes to reality.

yeah i was like holy shit these are quiet! when i first got em.
had em for about 20k km now and u can hear em, but not that bad, doesnt annoy you or anything. at 100kmh the wind is probly noisier if u got the window down

Hmmm changed my mind. Might go the 4-rib instead of 5. If i'm changing my pretty much brand new duelers, i might as well get the real deal. I guess my once or twice off-road trip a month is enough . Gonna go check some prices, etc tomorrow. Even though Pete and few others did say, no rubbing or anything without any lift, i sure hope they're right! 265/75's definitely fill the mud guards more than these bridgestones...

The slim line weather-shields make more noise than than the missus, when i come home pissed. So the tyre noise would be the least of my worries lol.
