Don't know anyone who's bothered with splits on a Jack. But the 6stud pattern and offset is pretty much the same as nissan patrol, IFS Hilux and 80series landCruiser.

Stay away from 40,55,60,75,78,79,100series landCruisers.

The offset is nowhere near the same as the patrol or 80 series, closer to the navara and newer prados. Your normal sunrayser landcruiser offset will have your tyres just sticking out a bit.

Why do you want split rims anyway?

I was thinking split rims as I am going out into desert areas where I used to work and I got flats daily so I thought it might be a good idea. any other sugestions. welcome

Jackablue,

I should have been clearer and said "backspacing" rather than "offset". Backspacing is what matters, as the rims are different widths.

I measured the backspacing at 115mm on an early 90's Jackaroo some time ago and found it was identical to the 90series Prado had at the time, so I carried a Jackaroo rim as a spare. 80series rims have the same backspacing as the 90series Prado. The Patrol split rims run with about 85mm backspacing from memory, but given they are only 5.5inch wide, I'd expect them to fit up. Early Landcruiser splits were about 60mm from memory which means they would stick out a bit too far.

I'd be curious if you could measure the backspacing of one of your Jackaroo rims for me and tell me the number. I am working on the (possibly incorrect) assumption that the backspacing of Jackaroo rims hasn't changed.

As for the question of split rims - I'm with you. I stopped using them 10 years ago and couldn't be happier. Less hassles all round with tubeless out in the desert and we use plugs for 5-minute repairs in the desert.

Cheers
Phil

Stud pattern is the same as prado / patrol etc 6 stud, but the jack has a fairly unique offset, navara is closest. A while back i looked at fitting some roh trak2 rims and they didn't do a offset for the jackaroo, the closest was the "standard" offset which would sit the track about an inch wider each side and make the standard jack into a "widetrack" model. I didn't want the increased bearing loads so i stuck with the standard wheels. I actually have a set of 4 standard late model jack 16x7jj steel rims for sale if you are interested, but i'm in melb.

Also i've never seen a jack with split rims fitted. you may find it hard to find a split and tyre combo which meets the size/load&speed ratings for the jack.
