Also included, all grade 8 hardware. A next alternative is to wing it: just put on the larger wheel on the carrier and slam the door. We'll have videos that will show Doug doing each process, and we'll post those as time goes on. You will also definately need to change the front brake pipes for longer ones and may also need to change the rear ones as well. Discount tire had to orderthem. Precise effects can be calculated with the tyresize calculator at the bottom of this webpage. That is only natural: they are scary! A stock Disco on good tyres should be more than adequate.
You will marvel at how the wheels stay in touch with rock strewn and rutted tracks that you winched up the last time. They will also put a hell of a lot of strain on the driveline especially the axles. Gearing and shaft strenght become issues. It is machined out one piece of aluminum instead of two, the kit performs the same just a different design. I don't really want to cut the body work unless I need to.
Effectively the bumper will be pushed down a bit. This kit has the shock relocation mounts. Keep the D1 for PnP. If you can live with the rubbing this is an easy way out, but only applicable for the tyre sizes between 30. Increasing the tyre height, keeping the rest the same, will give you quite a few effects, some positive and some negative, depending on which way you're looking at it First you get the higher tyre walls, similar to decreasing the wheel size, with about the same effect see above.
I just wanted you to understand why you wanted certain things and to understand the impact, both positive and negative of the decision. So the beadlock will lock the bead to the tire to the wheel, make it a lot harder for that to happen. A frame bushes and on axle end greasable version fitment, replaced front hub bearings timken , and about to do the front propshaft wide angle to go on, no castor correction done as yet but all in all i have slight steering issues and no doubt still abit of work to solve as much of the problem as i can. My personal budget favorite are Procomps and have a fairly wide range of lengths. Secondly, because of the kevlar sidewall on these tires they are a lot less prone to abrasive cuts, rocks, I mean let's face it, you have a lot of sharp objects out there you can scrub a sidewall on and pop a tire. Oops, I almost forgot :-. .
It is also estimated that off-road capabilities of wheels already increase with merely size, so that even All-Terrain tyres in 33 inch tyre size will provide enhanced off-road performance. Interestingly, fuel consumption has been reported to be not increased for these tyresizes, but contrarily seems to be stable or even better. So I'm gonna have to do two things to get it where I want it. The first things I'm going to the D2 is trying to make it reliable Things already done. Obviously, you can make any tyre size fit.
Matt, don't know if they come in the size you need for the 16 inch wheels, but I have the Michelin 4x4 Synchrones on mine and have really liked them. In my opinion, it is the best mod you can make to a D2. I am looking for a slightly aggressive looking tire that will do well all-season and not be deafening or otherwise bad when I am on hte highway. They are two of the most experienced off-roaders on the forum. When I turn the wheel, the front bumper gets in the tire´s way, so I dont know what to do. We have a great deal of very interesting and technical and engineering information on the Old Man Emu springs and shocks.
Are you Td5 or V8 and auto or manual? Do your shocks need replacing? This is a precisely machined direct bolt in kit. I will be building an external cage like my D1 but a bit more basic to keep the weight down. It is machined out one piece of aluminum instead of two, the kit performs the same just a different design. But beware, people interested in these sizes tend to also change the suspension for lift and for improved ride. Has the addition of a winch reduced your front end ride height? The spare wheel carrier needs no adjustment for the 30-inch tyre sizes, but as it will be a close fit, allow for variation in Land Rover build and in practical tyre size, and measure for yourself.
I went the Old Man Emu route which is about £200 more expensive. Weight - The Critical Factor Full load or empty, the critical factor that determines the correct suspension solution for your vehicle is weight. This kit has the shock relocation mounts. Increases by 15% Oversized are very pronounced, and changes to gears, diffs, etc are hardly avoidable. Reasonable, slightly larger tyres: 30 inch and 31 inch 30. For most people, the extra inch or so isn't worth all the headache and cost necessary. This will fit either the front or the rear sway bar.
You can adjust the bump stops up front easy 10 minutes work. It was a great match. Does your truck still have the Rear Air Suspension? Overall, these oversized tyres, are only for the brave of heart, but necessarily in combination with a substantial body lift, you get an enormous under-diff clearance! A bit of wheel arch trimming and straightening the rear quarter panel line back towards the rear bumper will also help with clearance. Furthermore, engine performance and braking effectivity will significantly deteriorate. Obviously the aforementioned effects are proportional to the tyresize increase that you have in mind. By all means ask questions of them and as long as you listen to them you'll find them most helpful. If it does effect the handling you will either need to replace the bushes at the axle end of the front radius arms for castor corrected ones or buy new castor corrected arms.
