Default 33s on a PX Ranger

Trial fitted my new wheels today:


Checking clearances under flex:


Size difference between 265/65R17 and 285/70R17 (quite a large one at that!)


Think im going to need some flares to keep the law happy

Plenty of clearance all around, closest is 10mm to the mud flap under full lock and compression.

After a 2" lift should be miles of room.

Yea 33x11.5", bit oversize for a 285/70R18 - Nitto Trail Grapplers

33 was traditionally 33x12.5 but still 33 high.

Hey they look pretty good there mac man.
Did you try jacking from the passenger rear tyre? ,would give better compression of front drivers suspension that way.

cheers,
Brian.

Nice mac man! 33 will be my next size i think 31's are great at the moment but with the lift should fit 33's without a drama! Cheers

Looks real nice mate, just a couple questions; What are the rims, where'd you get them and how much? Cheers

Rims are KMC XD Hoss

I got the whole package for $2k but that was a bargain

I believe the guy i bought them off got the wheels from ozzy tyres
