Hi Guys, I have a spare set of factory alloys and going to put some mud terrains on them. What size do you think I should put on?
They are only going to be put on the car for 4wd weekends in the Vic high country.
P.s May need to install chains as well

Go with the 295's. I put a set of General Grabber SLR's on which are a very aggressive set of AT. I do the high country in them and shop around the city on the week day. I am most impressed with them.

Whitetruck, how do you go with the 295's in the spare wheel well, do you have to deflate it to get it to fit or does it fit at road pressures

I have a 305/55/r20 in the spare wheel well fully inflated. Should be fine.

Stig, thanks for the info greatly appreciated. Going by 1010tires website your tyres are only 33.21in/843.50mm, the original tyres are 32.61in/828.20mm, but the 295's are 34.26in/870.20mm so are 42mm bigger in diameter than originals, and having a look under the back there doesn't seem to be that much room. Might just have to take the patrol to the tyre mob and see what fits under there!!

Thanks Mate, Let us know how you go. I don't want to get trapped with 295's on original rims and them hitting inside the guards

Can you get a 295 on a stock rim and still clear the upper arm?

Wranga reported in the other thread that he only had 5mm clearance with a 295 on a +30 18" rim. Stock rims are +40 offset, meaning 10mm closer to the upper arm. I'd be interested to hear how you go.

You mean 10mm further from the upper arm.

Increasing offset moves the wheel inboard.

Decreasing moves it outboard.

Like you say negative offset moves the wheels away from the car. Positive moves them closer. Which is what I was trying to say. The stock wheels at +40 are 10mm closer to the arm than Wrangas +30 rims. Which could present a problem given Wranga only has 5mm clearance with his 295s, despite being 10mm further out than the stock rims.
