Default pics of 32.7 inch tyres on PX Ranger

Bought some second hand 285x70x17 tyres on ebay.
1 New and 4 second hand for $125.00
Got them fitted today on the standard mags.
To my and the tyre fitters amazement they are a really good fit and dont look to large on the vehicle. There is still plenty of clearance everywhere. They dont rub anything.
Nearly 33 inch Tyres with no lift is pretty cool in my book.

looks good. Have you checked to see how far out the speedo is?

My speedo originally showed about 94km per hour doing about 100.
Now I think it shows about 101 doing about 100.
I will have to check it better as I only had a quick glance a few times cause there was traffic and my iPhone does not have a cradle yet.

Interesting, my mate has a brand new wildtrack( the most recent shape before yours)
He has 32's and they scrub like a mofo with any flex offroad and thats with a 2 inch lift!
Have you flexed yours up as of yet?

My last car was a 2003 Hilux dual cab it had a 50mm suspension lift and a 50mm body lift.
I had 32 inch tyres on it and it would scrub going up my work driveway with the wheels near full lock.
This does not scrub at the same place. There seems to be plenty of room around the tyres but I will do some more serious flex tests tomorrow and see if I can make it scrub.

I'm interested to see how you go with that.
I wonder how much larger if any the wheel arches are from the previous shape (that my mate owns) I'll get the tape measure out if i remember next time i see him.

Cheers






Just thought i'd throw some pics in for the hell of it, i have to admit i used to hate the look of the rangers now i'm "Warming" to them

That blue ranger looks tuff as.
Having the mud guards off look way better as well.
I need to tuffen my car up. For the last 15 years I have always had tuff black Hilux's with muddies and lift kits.
I got way over the black hilux look after having 3 Black hilux's one after another. The reason I went white ford for a change.
Now Im thinking white looks a little commercial like a telstra truck or something.
I think a 50mm lift with some big wheels with muddies should do the trick, always does.

you definatly won't regret the white paint job once you start hitting the tracks, you'll be able to lead other cars through overgrown tracks without any visible marks, whilst the guy with the red paint job behind you has some new white pin stripes

cheers timothy2222, is good to know! I am currently sourcing new hoops for my PX Ranger... Not many decent wheel designs out that will fit as I believe they are a +55mm offset? (correct me if i'm wrong anyone) going for less offset may cause issues with bigger tyres scrubbing though. But at least then you won't be lying when you tell your partner you 'need' the lift kit
