Actually though, that IS a good price for the sensors... by "JA supplied" standards.

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Ordered.... $1100 for the 4 rims, plus freight.
I need to set up my paypal to order those sensors....
Next is tyres.
I'm coming from Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ.... thinking of going with a cooper tyre, the ST/Max looks cool, but maybe overkill. Most of my off road driving is sand, but I do get into the mud once in a while.

Maybe the AT3 in LT, looks like they only do 275s.

It's amazingly stupid Mickey Thompson are only offering the STZ with a Passenger carcass in the relevant size. That would be ideal.

If sand is your main destination, be considerate of the effect on the car with "excessively" luggy tyres (for your purpose). I'm sure you already know this.

My impression is that the Grand allows you to feel/hear more of the tyre's characteristics than the type of vehicle you're coming from.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Hmmm, yes I'm a bit torn on how luggy I'd go. Not interested in MTs, but the Maxx might be acceptable... anyway, I'll have to look at some of the other options. I see ds84 has some Bridgestone D697s on the same black rims I'm getting. Might have to PM him to see how they are going.

Noons. He's done some rough early kays on them and they looked "as new".

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Cool, I found a thread on them, a bit cheaper than the coopers

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

The next question I have on tyres is what is the maximum profile we can fit to an 18" rim? The original is a 60 (775mm OD?), so a 70 at ~850mm is over the 50mm allowable increase, is that right, or am I missing something?

Have you been back to the Off Road 18"s thread? There's pictures of my 275/65R18 fitment which shows they are about as big as will fit without surgery.

Cheers,
Steve

PS: Whilst you can calculate diameter, the manufacturer's spec is really the only thing worth banking on. Tread depth varies...

Yep, saw that, so no one is fitting 70 profiles to the 18s?

As far as I can tell the cooper stmaxx only come in 70 profile on 18s, the published OD is 847mm. So I'm guessing that is a no go!

I see the wildpeaks have a 275/65R18 in the 2 ply sidewall, but if you want 3 ply, it only comes in the LT275/70R18....

70 Series profile needs to be erased from your thoughts immediately

Cheers,
