The first modification on the list was to swap out the old tyres for a slightly bigger tyre, and also chuck them on a steel rim with a less positive offset.
From the factory the 2006 SR5 Hilux, as I'm told, comes on a 15 x 7 inch allow rim with a +30 offset. Well and truly hiding any tire well inside the guard.
Upgrading the wheels i wanted to get as much footprint as i could when airing down, as well as as much "poor man's suspension"
when airing down.
So starting off small I decided on a 31/10.5r15 Wild Peak all Terrain mounted on a 15 x 7 inch steel sunny with +10 offset.
This combo meant the tyres were perfectly flush with the guard and also gave a bit more clearance under the diffs and a tad more width than the previous tyres.
There was no particular reason I went with the wildpeak all terrain, They were just a good price at the time with decent reviews
