Tire size and re-gearing
I am looking at fitting an IRO 4" or 6.5" longarm kit, and would like to know from guys with experience what is the biggest tires I can fit before having to re-gear the axles.
Living in South Africa we do not have access to after market parts like you lucky guys in the US, and this means we have to import everything we need at big costs, hence I want to get it right the first time.
What I am looking at getting is:
IRO 6.5" Critical Path Long Arm Lift Kit
ATX AX1812 Artillery Wheel - Chrome
16x9, 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern ,Backspace = 4.53in
Maxxis Mudzillas 31x11.5x16
From doing some research it seams that 31" tires will not be a problem and it seems that it is only once you go to 33" and above that re-gearing needs to be donne - am I correct in this?
Any help and info regarding this set-up is appreciated.
