Hi all

Ive a NJ Pajero 2.8 turbo. Currently running 205 R16 SP Road Grippers but i wanted to put some 750?? i think R16. Anyway the same size as on the patrol and cruisers. They tires will be on patrol split rims so i assume the tires will fit?

Will the Paj be ok though??

I want to keep splits, i am happy to put a 2" lift in back and wind up the front a bit, so getting them under there isnt the problem............its the motor?

i will be towing a 1 tonne camper and tinny on the roof....................

any thoughts those who know?

Cheers

Perhaps best to check the legality.
A mate wanted to put his surplus Hilux (split rims) wheels on his new Rodao table top.
RTA said very much a no no.

Troyza,
What does the tyre placard inside the drivers door tell you?

I've had a couple of goes at mixing tyres of different size / manufacturer and my success rate was poor.

1. It changes your gearing, can make fuel consumption worse, as well as affect power, and your speedo won't be correct, so watch out for speed cameras.

2. Insurance companies like to use things like that as a good excuse not to pay out after an accident because your tyres/rims are not correct, regardless of who was at fault.

yeh ta muzzgit. All taken into consideration, guess im wondering if anyone has tried this type of combo on a pajero yet. Trying to get feedback more so on how the handling was from a personal physical experience.

Cheers though

I'm not sure how the NJ compares to the NM but when I was looking for a second spare for my NM The guys at ROH advised that the Wheel & Hub on Paj's had to be an exact match or problems could occur. Might be worth checking out.
