G'day all
has anyone out there put on bigger tyres on a 99 Jackaroo? The tyre placcard says the biggest is 245/7016.I've got this size on currantly with Bridgestone Duller A/Ts but would like to go for something a little more bushable and that would give me better clearance.Am thinking of the Cooper discovery ST.I've had a 40mm lift on the car.And was thinking of going to a 265/75 size but am worried it may scrape.Has anyone done it?

I have a 99 Jack & have Cooper ST's. Mine are 245/75/16 which is slightly larger than what is permitted by RTA regulations - but many Jack owners have gone to that size.

You would need to check out the legality of going 265/75 as it would be way outside regulations - would need an Engineers certification.

We used to have a 98 SE before upgrading to the patrol 4800. We put larger tyres on the standard alloys but can't quite remember the increased size. Didn't rub even loaded, was not a massive tyre we fitted. Has your jackaroo been reliable or a lemon?

Yea, going to 245/75 is one of the thoughts,but would like yo go that little bit wider plus going to 75 profile on a wider tyre gives even more height.

Have had a couple of little isues with the Jack but all in all pretty good.

gday macca, i have been looking at this as well for my jack, it also has the deuller at 245 70 series fitted, have been told by a few tyre fitters that the 265 75 will rub, as well as put you offside with the law, side by side it is a huge difference between the 2. Coopers etc are only in a 245 75 series which would be ok, but you can get the BFG all terrain ta's in a 245 70 size which is what a lot of the guys on this site run on their jacks and reccommend, probably what i will go with when mine are due, as they have a good load rating and have served me well on our hilux at home. Some run with a 255 70 series as well but these may prove hard to get at short notice. CheersMoo... everyone knows what a Jackaroo looks like :-)

Good luck with yours - if in doubt buy a patrol.
