Hi everybody!

Well, i'd like in the near future to fit 315/75R16 mud tyres on some split rims i have, has anyone done that . Theses split rims are 6X16. Or if anyone has put swome 35/12.5X15 on six width rims, please let me know! As well, how much lift f or thoses 34.8 or 35 tyres? I'd like to do a spring over, cos i come from a hilux truck background (86 one 2L diesel engine! front and back solid axles with spring over axles stock! ) but even if i'm not too bad an engineer and welder (i have a milling machine for making parts and access to a lathe) i'm not too keen on doing the job, first moneywise, it would be at least a litle expensive, and time consuming. Would a shackle lift be enough, or even longer shackles and a shoe for the other end of the spring?

Best regards.

Max.

SUA you can sneak in 35s but not without some serious trimming. SOA 35s are the minumum, as it provides 6+ inches unless you de-arch a bit. If you want to go crazy do an SOA and go with 36/7s its amazing.
