Hi,

First time poster, long time reader.

I need some advice.

I have a 1995 Pajero NJ LWB and I am looking to replace the stock 15 inch rims with 16 inch Sunraysia rims and new tyres. Most of my driving is off-road and sand, but nothing too radical. I am looking for a tyre which will perfome well in the bush. My driving ratio would be 80% dirt and 20% highway.
No lift and no mods at this time. It sits nice and high with no sag in the rear or the front.

I am looking for advice on the best rim size and tyre choice.

Thank you in advance.

Andrew

Everyone will tell you something different because tyre choice is a matter of opinion, like whats better toyota or nissan, so in saying that all i can offer is my experience, and you can chose from there. i would run, in your case BFG allterrain TA, 265/70/R16 or Copper ST in the same size. They are both the same price give or take, they are both tough and both perform well. Just a thought though, 15" tyres are cheaper, you may want to stay with 15" and run say the same tyres but in like a 31x10.5/r15?? good luck hope this helps!

Thanks !

Very good point re the 15" rims and the tyre price.
I have not had Cooper tyres before, but i hear they are very tough.
I had BFGoodrich on my old BJ-42 and they performed well.

Hi Andrew,
I have a 1993 swb 2.8 TDI and run 31 x 10.5 x 15 GT Radials.

I use two sets on steel rims; Adventuro A/T's & Savero M/T's
Don't know if you have this brand available but I find the 31" A/T's are great for everything that does not need the more serious M/T's.
I agree with the idea of using 31's, easily replaced if required.

See if you can get 33's under your guards but.

I bought my NG with BFG A/T 31's on it. I can get away with the 33's.

33's ! wow !
I think 33 may be too big ..... or is it ?
considering no lift mods yet.
I may test fit a 31 and see how it goes .. or a 33 at the front to see if it may work
One tyre place told me that a 31 is the maximum I can fit.
thanks !

No worries. Seems a shame to go where your going without some extra lift for your buck.
