    Default Tyres for FJ40

    Friends,,,

    Need your help in decision regarding tyres installation in my FJ40. Following are readily available options so i want you to help me decide from them

    1- Yokohama Geolandar A/T 275/65/17 with Japanies 17'' SPIEL Ultra light alloys which i have personally bought from Dubai for my BJ60.

    2- 275/70/16 Bridgestone Blizzak (available with a friend and asking for 50k with rims - normal condition). Pls note that spacers will be required for these as they rub with tie rod ends in extreem turns.

    Please see the pictures below and suggest accordingly.

    J40 requires atleast 3.5" or less backspace to fit the wheels without touching any thing other than the hub itself and give maximum turning angle on 31" tires. Bigger / wider the tires, lesser backspace (more -ve offset) is required to keep the tires clear of the steering rod and leaf springs in some cases ;-)

    The firsts set is gorgeous and will look fantastic being a tall one. Does it fit well without the need of spacers? The only rare drawback would be getting 5th tires of the same height in 15 or 16" wheels (I'm assuming the set has 4 pcs as we see normally). And in case need another replacement tire, they are hard to find and expensive.

    Second set has a positive offset so obvious that it will require spacers that will end up being as expensive as another used set of wheels itself. Positive offset is good for higher speeds and cornering and has less to do with our intended application ;-)

    Sorry for the late response, and yes, I think the best option right now is to have Yokos on the vehicle.
