    I did ask a while ago. They are OK with it.

    Great, was worried about that. Looking forward to your verdict on these, especially how the bigger size effects breaking and fuel economy.

    Hopefully breaking is unaffected and braking is adequate.

    Will definitely report back. Im researching on how to tell the computer about it so the MFI stays accurate.

    The wheels. Slightly bigger. It fills the wheel arches a bit better imho.

    Hardly feel any performance difference. Noise is the same. Gearbox kicks down easier but it could be because I reset it. Not an issue. Tiptronic is bliss.

    Definitely softer on tar and gravel - running 2.4 bar all round.

    Braking compromised?

    Not as far as I can tell. You can feel a small difference but there is more than enough stopping power.

    Went offroad this weekend. I climbed a muddy rutted hill.

    After that I had to pull a land cruiser prado and a mazda drifter up that couldn't make it.

    Pictures and videos to follow.

    Those swb prados are nice, but traction is terrible offroad when it gets twisty and wet. Dad had one. It was always a wait for him in the isuzu while he struggled. Why they never had a rear locker is beyond me. Lwb had..
