That was a good idea making that a sticky.

Now, anybody with the experience care to tell me how (if it all) that those required mods change with a 2" lift?

UPDATE

Here's a handy link for size calculations:

Just to echo the earlier post, I need to know if I can fit 235/85/16's to a Disco 1 with a 2" lift without having to cut any arches etc.

They may well fit but for safety you ideally want a 9 or 10" wide rim, with a 7" wide rim you stand the chance of them rolling off when cornering etc.

cheers Chris, i may well stick with the setup i've got them.Was just watching a set of alloys on ebay off a 300tdi and it got me thinking as i will need to think about replacing my tyres in a few months and thought about going up to that size but might just get another set of 235/85 16's instead :cry:

On what information do you base that reply??

Based on the information from from BFGoodrichs web site
http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/specs/mud-terrain-t-a-km/1152.html
in which case a 255/85r16 will fit on 6.5 to 8 inch wide rims.

slightly different sizes but i have 255/70/r16's on a 3dr 200tdi disco, pulls really well off the line and didn't notice any difference in the acceleration off the line since i changed to them after having 235/85/r16's but then I tweeked the injector pump so its a lot faster now, btw i have them fitted to 7 x 16" mods and they make the ruck a bit more spongy but I have hammered them round corners ok without em falling off!!

Will 235/70/16 MT and 235/85/16 MT fit on a Disco 200 without MODS?

Also If they will fit would they fit when mounted on Modular rims (7x16) with a 30mm offset?

Hope someone can help  :?

Just read your post.  Looks like 235/70/16 MT it is then.  Will they still fit if mounted onto 7x16 modular rims with 30mm offset (compared to standard steel rims)

Example rim.

Guys,
Can I ask if a 245/70R16 will go on a 300tdi with no mods. The link at the top of the page says no mods, only mods required to rear wheel arches if its a 245/75.
Only asking as the new tyres I have bought compared to my old ones are larger, much larger :shock:

No, you will have to trim the rear wheel arches. I have 31x10.5R15 BFG's on mine and the rear wheels catch badly.

Yes as this is a standard size for the Disco (usually fitted on steel wheels) and is only 1-2 mm difference in diameter to a 235/70 which is of course the other standard size. The width of course is 30mm narrower than a 235

My set of "road" wheels have 235/70's with a 205/80 as the spare (I think of it as no different to a space saver spare)

..any volunteers to add to the chart (brilliant idea btw!) to cover stock disco, 1" lifted, 2" lifted etc..

will 235/85/16`s in chunky MT mode fit, as the same size AT`s lok a little close (+2" suspension lift fitted and trimmed, correction arms/bushes fitted)  :wink:

For what it's worth, I have 33/12.50/15s on my disco... heavily cut back arches front and rear, and they protrude about 2" from the sides ( borderline legal ) and with a 2" lift and extended stops I have no problems until I tow or have a heavy load...in which case they rub on occasions... on full lock they catch the radius arms, which is to be expected... They look cool but I wish I'de gone for a smaller size...
