    Default What tyres on your 1hz

    I currently have some 265 70 16 on my 105 series (diesel). I would love to see some 33s on the vehicle and am looking at 255 85 16 or something close to 33s.

    I have read some people saying that the 33s make the vehicle very sluggish and that the gearing is all out.

    Does anyone have any experience to share.

    I would look at 265/75R16. Gives you a bit more height and will still be driveable. Standard size I think was 275/70R16. So you would be about on the standard size just a teeny bit taller.

    Guys I have spoken to who have fitted the 285/75R16 on the 1HZ say it's ok in town, but no fun on a long haul.

    I had 285/75 R16 on my 4.2 79 single cab.
    Yes it was slow, but they all are, wasn't that much slower than with standard 265's on.

    Without a turbo on it rather stick to 265x 75 x R16 ...

    Thanks guys, leaning towards a 265 75 16 on the newer cruiser 16 inch mags.
