Have a 1988 troopy and have had a number of different tyres over its 350,000 km but the present ones will not keep the weights on, have them fitted and only have to travel less than 3k for them to start coming off and over the next 1000 will lose 25+% Have tried truck, light truck, Toyota genuine and standard but all the same. Present tyres are YOKOHAMA LT RADIAL 811 LT 235 85R 16 on split rims. As the on road weight is always about 2.75 ton have 50 psi all round. After six tripes to BJ since Xmas for new weights they nearly lock the door when they see me coming, any sugestions? most of the ditance traveled is on back roads in central Aust so I like the split rims for fixing tyres.

ive been in tyres for years.
never found a wheel that i cant fit weights to(yet)
on splitys if they dont need heaps of weights i usually fit pasanger type.
if they need a little more weight i fit mag weights but where they clip on rim i usually hit the weight a little.
lots of times weights will come of but not as often as you say.get them to try mag wheel weights next.

good lucklooking foward to september(landcruiser park/fraser island)

Hi I had thesame problems with 235x85 on splitties b4. Thought in the end that it was the wider tyre massaging the weights off the rims. Try the mag weights as i tried new/old weights to no avail.(or tubeless rims)
