    ... would stay with the front bumper, isn`t so bad.
    Your 45LV has some modifications.. so why put more money in than necessary.
    A penny saved is a penny earned.....:)

    I just put a set of 235/85/16 on mine. A bit wobbly after the wider tires I had on, but still finding the perfect pressure. Mine is very stock, only mod added is a brake booster, otherwise run on the '67 F engine with 3 speed transmission.

    Hilux, Would you still make the change if you had to do it all over again or prefer the wider tires? I have a few weeks to decide, I keep going back and forth. I think I’ve reached the point of over-research.

    I’m running 33x10.5 on mine and really like them but I do go off road but they are fine on the hard top to .

    This truck has 33x9.5's on it now, and they do seem to ride pretty nice. They just look too tall IMO, something a little smaller would look better I think but I'm a little worried about sacrificing too much ride quality. I suppose if I get them at discount tire I can always exchange them after a couple weeks if they just don't ride well.

    Wngrog, are both of these running the 235/85-16 Yokohama MT's? They look pretty good, I like the clearance in the rear. Happy with the ride on the road?

    EDIT: Just found your thread here, great read - I think I'm going to go this route when the wheels arrive. Hope I'm as lucky as you were to get them quickly! We will see...

    The Yokohama MTs are my favorite of all my tires. Quiet, great traction. Love them. My second set of the City Racer wheels came pretty fast too.

    It looks perfect from where I’m sitting.

    FYI posted a couple of new threads - looking for someone to loan (or sell) me a set of those rear seat brackets to duplicate, and happy to have several sets made if others are looking for them. Not sure on cost yet.

    and also looking for one of the early style light switches if anyone has a source.

    I’m also going to be working on making several of the rear bumpers (with attachments/supports) once I get a good first shot made, if any one is interested in one let me know. I can start a separate thread and get a list. Not 100% sure on price for this either I don’t have the ability to do this myself but have a good local contact for this stuff. Figured if I’m having him make me one he might as well make several if others need them.
