Yes i know, that's why i did consider going a very common size of tire : 265/75 R16. OEM size for Toyota HDJ100 and Patrols that are used by locals as the 1st choice for offroad tours...JeremyD said:A mojor factor in my decision process was the availability of this tyre the good years are much more widely available that the OEM size.
It should go nicely but you'll want as safety and if you still have air suspension:JeremyD said:I wasnt aware that that was the size used on cruisers I will get them to quoe me on that size
If the overall diameter of the new tyre / wheel setup is the same as before, would you need to adjust the suspension height?Jeremiad said:I don't want to fettle with the Air suspension.It works fine and I'm not playing with it especially when the pound - Namibian dollar exchange rate is what it is! Is it really necessary to adjust it with these tyre on?
Great website, hours of learning. Thanks :thumb:vinniman said:Gentlemen.
The P38 Rangie is not like other Tojo's or Datsun's from Japan, that's why each of us acquired one and now have to live with it !
All the standard tyre sizes available in Third world areas can't hide the fact that other compromises have to be made to fit P38's peculiar characteristics and remember none of use will be cruising along the dirt roads out the back blocks of Namibia to help ?
I think that South African 4X4 guru on his http://www.4xforum.com web-site has some healthy experience with Land Rovers in Africa.
