  • Kakadu tyres

    Hi All

    i have a 2012 Kakadu, i have a 2inch lift on it.

    The issue i am having is fitting bigger tyres, I have had 18x9 "monster" rims (with 25 offset) fitted 2 saturdays ago, along with 285 65 18 bfg ko2 (they where hitting on the top control arm) - then they swapped them over 275 65 18 bfg ko2 (they where hitting on the top control arm).

    I am wondering what other options i have, would the 275/65r18 fit the original Kakadu rims (18x7.5), or would the 265/65r18 be ok to fit or will i have to go back to 265/60r18?

    It is getting frustrating & time consuming.

    appreciate any help

    You first need to check that the offset is indeed ET25. Are these it? https://www.xdwheels.com/product/whe...sh=matte-black
    If so, they are available in ET35 or ET18 offsets. Suspect you have the ET35 which is why the tyres are hitting the UCA. ET18 is better but closer to ET0 is better again.

      Hi Amts

      thanks for getting back to me.

      similar rims - refer to thte attached link - the invoice states that they are 25 offset, but maybe they put the wrong offset on.

      do you know if the 275 65 18 bfg ko2 would fit on the standard kakadu rim 18x7.5?

        Those rims also came in P35 offset. https://www.bobjane.com.au/a/18x9-6-...riant_id=26497
        Get the offset checked.

        I'd be fitting max 265/65R18 without getting into clearance issues.

        BFG don't have a chart of recommended rim widths vs tyre size so I used this as a guide (note that tyre manufacturers have different recommendations on minimum rim widths for the selected tyre size)
        https://www.tyresizecalculator.com/t...ize-calculator
        According to the above, 7.5" is the minimum width to fit 275/65R18. Putting in 285/65R18 gives an error.

        From an offroad point of view, narrow tyres perform better than wider tyres (assuming overall tyre diameter is maintained).

            Hi Amts

            I just thought i would update - finally after being mucked around a bit by the tyre store, they fitted agreed to fit a different "XD818 Heist - Satin Black - 20X9 6/139.7 P18" which has solved the issue of the tyre hitting on the top control arm on full lock.

            they think it was also due to worn lower control arm bushes, so i have order 2 front lower control arms, which i am fitting in the next week or 2.

              That depends greatly on the type of terrain you are wheeling on....

              anyways, I have a 2017 GXL with a 2" lift and 285/70R17 BFG KO2's and I am not getting any scrubbing on those unless its at extreme lock, and even that is very minor.

                It all comes down to offset and +25 is same as OEM, so there’s no point to aftermarket rims in OEM offset if you want wider tyres than OEM. I think you’d need an offset of between +5 and +15 for 285s

                This particular calculator is brilliant: https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp

                I run the same size tyre on a 17x8.5 +6 offset, what offset are you running with the 285s?
