G'day all,

I have just bought a 2000 Rodeo turbo diesel duel cab, apart from the front seat needing to be resprung and some of the cloth replaced its in top condition. Can anyone recomend an upolsterer in Melbourne that can respring and repair seats, I'm in Moonee Ponds.

I am also planning to replace the standard 205R16 tyres with an AT tyre. I have read the previous posts about fitting 15" Sunraiser rims but with more 16" tyre options available now, should I stick with the standard 16" rims? What size tyres can I fit without them hanging out past the guards?

I was told that you can only fit a 225/75 16 on the standard rim. So I got BF Goodrich KO's in that size. That was 50 000 kms ago. Since have heard of people fitting a 235/85 16 with no trouble.

Although on mine (1997 4 cyl petrol), You will not fit a 235/85 16 under the tray without rerouting the exhaust. As it is it nearly touches the tyre on the left hand side. Yours might be different though.

You could fit 235*85 on your current 16" rims or what I did was get some Navara offset ROH Trak2 sunraysia style 15" rims and 31*10.5 tyres. I had BFG muddies and it made noticable difference to the ride hight and they performed great. 16" wheels cost twice as much. If you are feeling rich get them and 265*75 but make sure u have a lift!

I have 225/16s on std rims on Triton & they are a good compromise without
the expense of changed rims @ $150 each.
If things are tight around the bodywork at the front you can easily wind up the torsion bars but dont go too far & not leave enough rebound.
They also seem a bit soft at the rear and if riding low another leaf may help.
