I need some help from Prado owners because i like to fit some mickey thompson Baja claws to my prado and since i like some extra hight in the tyres , they also get wider and that is the problem so i am looking for some advise on Offset rims.
Does any prado owner actually have Offset rims fitted , where do you get them from , may be cost and does anyone actually run baja claws on a prado.

thanks

Hi wolf

I got the 275 65 MTZ baja on they give me about 20mm height they dont rub on full lock but are 5km faster than the speedo shows.

I was away with the LLCOOL last year and one of the prados has a steel am rim and it looked to be a wider offset than standard.

If your in Adelaide try Darren at total traction Im getting some steel rims next month to turn mine back in to the daily driver and putting the MTZ on the steel rims and getting a set of ATZ for round town.

Happy hunting

Trevor

2002 = 90series Prado.
The best 16x8 rims available are the GXL 80 series rims. They have the same backspacing as the Prado.
What size tyres are you hoping to fit?

You need a fair bit of lift, removal of the front mudflap and some judicious use of a big hammer to slip in the 285's. I never went that big myself on the Prados, but others have. You might get some first hand reports on the Prado groups.

As I said, the 16x8 GXL wheels from the 80series are a great wheel, but may be a bit hard to get hold of. The common alternative is the ROH Trak2 in the same size. Unfortunately the 285 are a bit too wide for the standard 16x7 Prado wheels.
