Does anyone know what rims are suitable for a 2002 Jackaroo? I have been told that just about any 6 stud pattern 16 X 7 will fit? Is this correct? Where can I get suitable 2nd hand rims in Melbourne? and how much should I expect to pay?

Any six stud will fit but it is the offset that you need to consider. I would think the Navara offset rim would be the right one as I have been told they are the ones for all IFS vehicles. However if you are going to wider rubber then you have to consider what will fit under the guard at all wheel positions.

IMHO if you are going to get anything other than an original size rim/tyre then you have to investigate all sorts of things.

For instance-

Will it fit under my guards in all positions?
Is it legal?
Will my insurer be happy?
Will a spare fit in the standard spot?
Speedo corrections?
Do I have enough power?
How is my low range/1st gear affected going down hills?

Probably more considerations I can't think of right now also.

Have you considered getting second hand tyres for play?

I bought 5 new ROH steel rims 15x7 and got some S/H tyres 31x10.5x15 with 10mm of tread for my Rodeo for under $500. Not bad I thought. Easily sold for the same money I'd say when the time comes.

I have 1999 Jack. I bought 15x7 ROH rims fitted with 31'' Pro Comp Mud Terrain tyres. I wanted bigger but they fouled the front guards when turning and this is with a 2'' lift. All up cost me $1000. Brand New from TJM Dandenong in December 2003.

Maddog, I too have a 99 T/D Jack and was under the impression that the standard 15x7 inch rims with 31/10R15 LT tyres didn't fit because of the brakes. Were there any mods needed with brakes or was my info wrong? If you are right, and it seems you are, that would suit me fine because my camper trailer tyres (31/10R15 LT) on 15x7s would fit the vehicle!

My Jack is 3.5 Petrol, not that it should make any difference (or does it?). I've had no problems with the brakes and no mods were made - just put straight on. I too have a camper trailer (Jayco Outback Eagle) and I have the same rims/tyres on it as well.

265/75/16 MTRs fitted to 90series Prado steel rims fit nicely on one of our club members TD Jack. It has a 50mm OME lift.

Thanks for your help guys.

Does anyone know where I could obtain a comparison of wheel offsets. Perhaps someone has found something along these lines on the web and it would make choosing wheels for the jacka that much easier. I don't intend going too much larger than the 29 inchers I have on it now but I want steel wheels for the bush.

I have a 2000 TD base model jack which came with 16 inch rims. I can't remember how wide they were but look tiny in comparison to the one's I have now. I replaced the standard rims with 17 x 8.5 Antera alloys which look fantastic. I have 285 x 60 pirelli scorpion zero rubber (70% onroad, 30% off) which are unbeatable on the road but no so good offroad. I also had to get factory flares fitted which just prevent the tyres from sticking out. Despite having road rubber I have only ever busted one pirelli, which occurred on road anyway!! and I have taken them over rocks numerous times. I would not buy the pirelli's again because they only lasted 45,000 km and I'm now on my second set. They also cost $443 each. Now that tyres manufacturers are making tyres for 17 inch rims makes me happy, so the next set will be cooper S/T, 265x70 or 275x70, which are ~ 1 and 1.5 inch higher respectively. Will also be doing a ball joint flip and and new suspension to fit the bigger tyres since my shocks are worn out from numerous wet weather sliding! It's also good to note that when I put the factory rims back on the Jack for a few days I was stunned, as the difference in handling between the two sets of rims was amazing - no sh?t. I also know that steel ROH rims (16x8 inch) for a nissian patrol fit fine on the Jacks (i tried it) but don't stick out enough for my liking. What ever you do with rims for a Jack, shop around alot as I found the tyre shops dick you around and say that only a few will fit when this is untrue! Same thing happened when I put alloys on my V6 suzuki, eventually found a nice set though. Good Luck and my advice is to get some 16's that are as wide as possible as to fill out your guards - there out there, i've seen em'.

Thanks for all of your help, I have now procured a set of 15" rims. They came off a Mazda Bravo but I have been told that they are the same offset. If anyone is looking for rims for their Jack specify "navara offset" and you will get the right ones.
