I would say it is worth raising your diffs by 1" when off road espeially when it rocks also less drag in sand, in ruts, climing over fallen trees or branches etc. etc Yes it will reduce acceleration, braking but that can be improved upon with other mods which means spending more money. So yes worth it to some but not for everyone depending on your needs.205 = wide [8 inches]
R / 85% is profile
16 is rim diameter [inches]
in a 1993 model a 2.8liter de sell? LN106? petrol?
I know an 1998 2.8 de sell was slowish getting there on the standard tyre/rim, but would go anywhere. Changing tyre/rim size/width for the sake of >half< the overall diameter in lift? eg: 30inch standard to 32inch is only one inch gained off the ground, is it worth it?
Experience : 2002 Hilux standard tyres = 205-R-16, so 30 inch high by 8inches wide. changing these to 31 inches high by 10.5inches wide results in 60klm >less< per tank of fuel.
Everyone likes big tyres big ground clearance, maximum salt shaker looks etc. but will anyone tell you that there are down sides?
Yes like myself some people will mention the downside to fitting larger tyres I think it was last week I mentioned to a hilux owner on here about getting wheel bearings, ball joints, bushes checked or rplaced because of the extra stress plus brake pad upgrade and speedo check.
'Salt shaker look' please explain
