    Default Which tyre location is good, 4X4 experts must see

    The circles in the first picture show the bearings. In the second picture, point A is the place which is the center of rotation of both the bearings and point B is the center of the tyre. So there is a distance of approximately 3 or 3.5 inches between these two points.
    Now if we have stock rims (5.5" wide), this distance will be less and by putting wider rims (like the existing ones (8.5" wide) will there be any effect on the turning bearings/ hub bearing/ strength of hubs/ strength of studs.
    While answering, please ignore all other factors like comfort, mud throwing, beauty, hardening of steering. And should i continue with the same size rims or reduce them by an inch or so?

    The vehicle is not that dirty, it was dark and thus looking dirty. By the way the line drawn under both the bearings is perfect. Pls reply as per the line.

    Hello Noman,

    If you are talking about the distance between the center of the tire and the turn bearing (shown below in red) then there shall be no issue as you anticipate.

    Which tyre location is good, 4X4 experts must see - 46175attach

    Keep in mind that your's was a standard version (steel rims, standard bumper etc etc) but the fully loaded ones had wider wheels & alloys, extended bumpers and all that stuff. The differences between the models are just the tirms, tires, wheels & internal / external accessories. It has nothing to do with the way the vehicle was built.

    So, keeping that dicussion in mind, I would say no issues.

    OK agreed. I got the same reply from few overseas forums also. By the way, what misconception i had was that "for a better drive, the tyre should be as close to the bearings as possible, which was wrong".

    The bigger the tyre, the more load on the bearings, a bigger Tire has more rolling resistance, as an HT over an AT over an MT. Though there is no imminent danger to life, but one should take precautions such as greasing them every 2-3 months at least and replace the bearings every year at least. For off-roaders, its half of that. This increases you fuel effiecency and qualituy of ride. Also if you one has bigger tires mounted, be sure to check the load range of the bearing. The most effected parts of a vehicle with large tyres are the whole steering assembly, especially the ball joints and the hydraulic pump. Be sure to check for oil regularly and grease the ball joints every 3 months.

    Thank u dear.
    Pls also explain HT, AT and MT. Also, i have seen this written on tyres as 31 10.50 R 15 LT. So what is "LT" in that?

    Default

    MT, AT , HT --- MT Mud track pur off road, AT All terrain on/off road, and HT are more towards onroad use only

    you see two rating

    1. P245/70R15 where P is for passenger
    2. 9.50x30R15 LT.. where LT is light truck

    For jeeps and offroad vehicles go for LT tyres.. more load rating
