Hi,

I have a stock standard 2002 Patrol GU ST. What are the biggest tyres I can fit on them before I need to get it lifted?. I would like as much width as possible.

Regards,
Sijmen.

Sijmen,
As Andrew mentions have a search you'll find heaps. Don't forget your warranty, changing things like wheel sizes invalidates your warranty if you have to claim for any drive line or engine related issues, well that's what Nissan told me anyway.

Wouldn't you just put your standard wheels back on when you took it for service/warranty claim?

Utemad,
I wouldn't keep a spare set of the right size tyres just in case something happened and / or I took the vehicle for a service. If things went pear shaped I personally wouldn't like to have to think about either buying or replacing the original tyres a a time of what I would regard as stressful. Or are you talking about keeping a complete set of tyres on the rims just in case and for servicing, me I don't have the space nor te cash to have five complete wheels for such an occasion just lying around. Sorry

Well I replaced my tyres on the standard rims so don't have the problem. However friends of mine have bought new rims and tyres while their originals were still legal and kept them. So if they have a problem they can just put the originals back on. For the most part they are not legal tread by much but legal all the same.

Hi,

It would need to be legal tyre size.

I have been told by my sales guy that they will warrant my vehicle with bigger tyres and lift as long as they are legal ie. GU 32x11.5's, and 16x8 rim.
