Can anybody tell whether you can fit 35 inch tyres under a 80 series cruiser with a 4 inch suspension lift. Or do you need to go higher.Also is it legal to go a few sizes bigger in tyre or is it a no no. I am having trouble finding out. I checked the archives and cant find info.

Legally . . . NO.

The best you can do is 15mm increase on the largest tyre shown on the placard on the vehicle.

I doubt 35's would be close.

You can get engineer certificate for larger tyres . . . but I can't tell you the ins and outs of those . . . no doubt someone will.

He has 35" Xterrains on a Crusier with 4" lift.

I do believe that you will need an engineers certificate to make it legal though.

And yes you will need engineers cert, + longer mudflaps, brake test, swerve test and more, about $500

Braking power will be compromised....one of the reasons a engineers cert will be required. Also, downhill engine braking will be lessened.
They'd look great, but would question the idea for normal road use.

Don,
35" would fit.

I just had a look at the tyre information on my '92 80 series and there are two. That means I can use two different size tyres. 7.50R 16 or 265 x 75R 15. Add the 15% leagle increase in hight and that should be the limit.

Do the laws for suspension sizes and tyres sizes vary from state to state
