G'day all
i have a 1990 SWB patrol with a 2" lift and im looking at buying a new set of tyres for offroad use only. i currently have 31's which are purely road tyres and will be used as every day use. What im wanting to know is the 2" lift sufficient enough to handle the 35's or would i be better off getting 33's or put coil spacers in when i put the 35's on? and what sort of offset would be needed for the rims with these size tyres?
The 35's will probably be simex centipede (35x10.5-15) and the 33's probably mud terrains KM2 (33"x10.5-15)if that makes any difference

Any advice will be great

Thanks guys

Simex Extremes V MT's? I dont think some people appreciate how good a proper set of extreme tyres are V MT's.

The other advantage is you can run much larger tyres for your offroaders. I remember an OL night run up Toolangi, Guts turned up with his 38 swampers on Beadlocks on the back of his lux, and threw the 35 MT's in the bushes while we went wheeling. Changed back at end of weekend and drove back to Albury.

**** loads of people run 2 sets of wheels - some with AT's and MT's, others Simexs etc as the second set...
best part of any tyre is the first 10%. Why waste that 10% on the road?
