Looking at conducting a tyre performance survey to find out what tyres, sizes and types of tyres newhilux members are using. I am borrowing this idea from our friends over on newtriton. Wanting to put together some sort of thread that newbies can have a look at to try and give them a better understanding of what rim combos and tyre combos are available and work on the hilux. Any any sort of problems encountered with fitment and how they look on the hilux as well.
Using the template below let us know what tyres you are using, how you rate them on and offroad and what rim you are using and any issue with rubbing etc.
Please keep responses fairly brief. Highlight the major issues and if possible link it to a build up thread for more detailed information. ie. Trimming of panels, guards, flex shots.
Headings for the survey
BRAND. (Manufacturer and tyre code)
TYRE SIZE.(Dia if known)
TYPE. (ie. H/T, A/T, M/T or Directional)
SUSPENSION LIFT. (What height your suspension is set at.)
RIM SIZE. (Brand, steel-alloy, diametre, width and (offset if Known???))
WEAR and PERFORMANCE ON + OFF ROAD ( Km's (service life), General comments, scrubbing issues and mods required to make them fit...Wheel studs not long enough... etc. (Briefly))
WEBLINK.(ie. links to build up threads for more detailed explanations or topic covered elsewhere on the forum)
(ie. link to tyre manufacturer)
(ie. Link to rim manufacturer)
PHOTOS. (post up one or two
photos of your tyre/ rim combo)
This is a very, very broad subject so please only post up your experiences here, even if your running stock tyres on stock rims on stock suspension would like to hear how you rate your tyres. To try and keep this topic on track general questions should be directed to the member who posted up via PM or jump onto an existing tyre thread using the search function.
I appreciate your participation in this thread. Even if you can't fill out all the fields in the template dont be shy to post up, every piece of infromation helps and it saves me alot of work.....
