Hi guys,

I need help picking out a tire size for my D40 Navara (2nd Gen frontier)

I have placed a order thorough 4wheelparts.com for

-5"calmini lift
-pro 1089 17X8
-??? cant decide on tires. I got a couple of days before the lift kit arrives at 4wheelparts before they ship it all out to me in australia. So i need to make a descion fast.

I really want 35" tires but after doing my research it wont work neatly.

I dont mind cutting plastic but im against hacking up the steel.

Options i have come up with for tires preference 1-2-3.

1-285/75R17 (34/11.50R17) Toyo open contry M/T tire calculator works this tire out to only being 33.8 tall. being not as wide it should work. i really want this size.

2-295/70R17 (33/11.50R17) Toyo open country M/T same tread as vodkatrix so i know it will work but he reckons he would of went with a tad smaller tire. Not sure on what if he meant hieight or width.

3-285/70R17LT (33/11.50R17LT) Mickey Thompson MTZ great looking tire and cheaper then toyo but the write up on the toyo come up on top. These tires are easy to obtain in australia.

Any other options would be greatly apperciated.

Thanks guys

With pro comp rims you will have to cut the fenders.

due to offset of the rim. My friend has the same thing, we put spindle lift and spacer and till have to cut, we had a wide tire though on it, we have 305/60r17 of extreme all terrian. We cut lot of plastic in on the inner fender and bent the metal instead of cutting it and cut plastic up front on the valace. with those tire setups you mentioned, they are guarentee a decent amount of rubbing..

do you think the width of tire would be the main cause of rubbing?

for example would the 285/75/17 (38.6x11.6) toyo rubless then the 295/70/17 (33.5x12)

5" lift and i cant even fit 33" tires without to many issues. Maybe i should of forked out the extra $450 and went fabtech.

Would the XD Series Black Addict wheels 17X9, Backspace 5.71,18mm offset be a better option in regards to less rubbing from tires?

Thanks
