wheels and tyres

Postby alchilds69 » Fri Oct 08, 2010 4:32 pm

hi guys, im getting to the point where im going to buy some wheels and tyres now. hopefully a bargain wheel and AT tyre combo. 33, 1250, 15s dont seem as available as regular 16" landy tyres. where did you get yours from? any suggestions on tyre models?

You could try 305/70 x 16 this works out about the same as 33/12.50 x 16. They will go on a 16 x 8 wheel OK. You should be able to get these without to many problems, I've got a set of BFG Mud Terrains this size currently on my Sahara.

I got mine from Camskill and the rims came from Paddock Motors.

with the 33/1250/15, only some of them will go on 8" wide rims.

You can fit them easily enough yourself, or any local tyre place should do it for around £5 a wheel.

Just a quick question. Does fitting 33 12.5 15 cause any probs with reduced steering lock, or rubbing ect?

Most modular wheels have greater off-set than standard LR wheels, ie the construction of the wheel moves the tyre/rim away from the hub which should help. Worth asking the supplier when you order.
I have a crib sheet linked on the PC at home, I'll try and post a link to it later.

Sorry about the delay, here's what I have (measured) from my notes:
Standard wheel is 137mm from hub face to edge of rim nearest the suspension.
Modulars are usually between 108 and 114 for the same measurement.
Therefore the rim/tyre is 23 - 29mm further away from anything that may rub.
You can, of course have some one like Matt Lee (Mach 5 wheels) make you any offset you want, at a price, or use spacers.

Hope that helps. H.

or just do what we so, cut / flip / shut a set of Disco 1 rims to give you a nice strong steel rim with great offset!

Unfortunately it's illeagal in the UK (if you were unlucky and get caught out the insurance is void as well) I believe.
I've got a set of those in the garage that I planned to do just that with 8-(
The other down side is that they are only 7.5" wide so, again with regard to insurance, probably an issue with larger tyres.
