  • Landcruiser wheels

    If I fit some Landcruiser wheels onto the Surf can I use Landcruiser tyres?
    The standard fitment on my Gen 3 is 265/70 R16. The Cruiser tyres are 265/75 R16. Will they fit? I have no lift and old springs!

    The tyres will fit your current Surf wheels, it's the sidewall height that will be that bit more so you'll probably get some rubbing. 16" Landcruiser wheels won't shrink the sidewall by magic.

    If you are on old springs, better to get a slight suspension lift when you replace and that might help with the bigger tyre.
    Surf if you got a wave. Wave if you got a Surf.

      Would the 75 sidewall fit with a 2" suspension lift?
      I'd like to go slightly bigger than the 70's if possible, but not if they're going to rub.

        Loads of online tyre size calculators..

        Put the details in and it'll give you an idea of just how much of a difference it really is!
        More Lift.
        More Tyres.
        More Engine.

          Landcruiser tyres should be 265/70 16 same as a surf not 75

            I was bidding on some on Ebay with 275's. Didn't win so moot point now!

            Charlie thanks for that link.

              Its a bugger when you miss stuff, 265/75 should go on as they are a 32" tyre but like you say saggy old springs.... According to roughtrax standard height is as follows:

              Front ride height: - bottom of rim up to arch: - usually a 10mm discrepancy
              15" rims = 747.5mm
              16" rims = 760mm

              Rear ride height: - bottom of rim up to arch: - usually a 10mm discrepancy
              15" rims = 787.5mm
              16" rims = 800mm

              Hope that helps

                    So what shocks are you going to buy?

                      Got some hd shocks from KS International. Never had any issues from there just waiting for them to arrive.
