235 75 R15 will be the best fit for your 2wd that gives you 28.9" diameter and there should be plenty of options with that size. About $145 should get some quality tyres.


7", 8", 9" or 10" width? what's going to cause the least amount of issues, and whats the benefits?

I've been to a couple and their advice is usually the same:

"you can't go any bigger because of regulations"

it usually consists of a sale person sitting on the computer and looking up the specs if they vehicle. Any recommendations on good wheel and tyre franchises that will give me some honest advice would be also good

As business proprietor they are required by law to give you the advice as required by state regulations thus they will not tell you to fit illegal tyres! You may get the information that you want to hear on a forum but tyre dealers are breaking the law if they advise you to fit something illegal according to state regulations. If you really want to know what's legal, seek out your local motor transport regulatory body and get the true information from them. Regulations vary from state to state and advice from members on this forum may or may not give advice for their state regulations.

Toyotally Awesome 2WD 2.0

Postby makeamends00 on Mon, 02 Nov 2020 1:35 +0000

Picked up this 2011 SR 2WD Toyota Hilux 3.0D and the end of 2018, after wanting something suitable for camping trips, mountain bike adventures and work-related trips.

This is my first utility purchase and utes especially Hilluxes are so inflated down here in TAS so I travelled over to Victoria and picked this up from a dealership as an ex-fleet vehicle with 190,000km, immaculate service history and only one owner for 14k.

My main priorities for this build is to get it equipt for trips away with mates & family & safer for off-road solo use.

I'll upload some photos soon of the draw system & bike rack setup and I've got some new wheels and A/T tyres being installed in the coming weeks also.

RIMS:

Managed to find a set of these 16" Steel Sunnies with the correct offset and spacing for $50 a pop

Image

TYRES TRIAL #01:

The first battle with new A/T Tyres on the rims I purchased above was the limited amount of options for 'light truck' .... minimal to none. I looked further into TAS Legislation and talked to my insurance company. Absolutely no problem getting approval for 'passenger' A/T tyres up to a maximum of 2" increase in diameter. First I tried a set of 215/70R16 Maxxis Bravo A/T:

Image

TYRES TRIAL #02:

There was still plenty of room and I hadn't exceeded 2" increase in total diameter so I stepped up to a 225/70R16 Maxxis Bravo A/T:

Image

Pretty much spot on a 2" increase. Bf Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2s where on sale so I ended up with them in a 225/70R16. We get a bit of snow down here through winter and I do a bit of travelling for site visits for work so I went with them. Picking up in a few weeks so Ill upload some photos

BIKE CARRIER:

One of my main priorities was sorting carrying two enduro mountain bikes without impacting on my roof space. Settled with this:

Yakima HoldUp EVO 2"
https://www.yakima.com.au/holdup-evo-2

- Folds up out of the way when not in use
- Folds down at 45 to gain access to tray when loaded with bikes
- Can plug on an additional 2 bikes by adding the HoldUp EVO +2
- has a bottle opener for when the fellas are thirsty after sending it all afternoon

Highly recommend
