Die kz kon oorspronlik uit met 245/75/15 bande. Ek het opgesit 265/75/15 met n negtiewe offset rim(deep dish). As ek skerp draai skawe die tyre teen die body. Ek net al n bietjie van die plastiek weg gesny maar wil nie nog sny nie. Wat is my ander opsies? Body lift? Waarna sal ek moet kyk? As ek die roete gaan is dit net spacers of saal ek n wilde perd op? Of maar net n ander rim key? Ek dink om later te gaan na 31/10.5/15. Advies sal wardeer word. Baie dankie

laat hulle jou wiele effe voorentoe skuif, dit is wat hulle met my gedoen het, as ek reg is.(265x75x15 = 31x10,5x15??)

245x75x15 = 29.5" diameter
265x75x15 = 30.6" diameter
31x10,5x15 = 31" diameter

The problem will be slightly worse with 31" tyres (the tyre radius will increase by 0.2" or about 5mm).

A deep dish rim makes the tyre stand out further, this widens the turning arc of the steering, i.e. the outer edge of the tyre will move further forward or backward on full lock in either direction

From what I understand, a 30mm strut spacer will raise the suspension by about 50 to 60 mm which will help to gain a little clearance, but it only helps if the articulation is small - once the articulation is increased and the suspension travel moves the tyre up and in, you still have the same problem.

I think you should look at going back to standard offset rims before going to other expenses. :winkx:

Hi Andy. That was my thoughts as well after doing some good thinking. It will be less complecated and much cheaper. Thanks guys for the tips and advise.

If I'm not mistaken, the IFS guys manage to fit 31" tyres without any real problems when they use the standard rim. So I really think that the offset you have is the fly in the ointment here. Perhaps if you can loan a set of rims with 31's on from someone just to test it first. Might just save some unnecessary expenses. :winkx:

Let them lift the front a bit by adjusting the torsion bars, 15mm up can help. You might have to shim it.

How ever you might with full lock get that the wheels still make contact. The - offset rims the culprit here. Your std rims would have been better.

The standard rims work perfect. I'm riding on 31x10.5's for many years and have no problems!

Hi Johan,
Is verseker die offset van die rims. Ek hol 31's op my IFS KZTE SURF met standaard ofset en geen probleme vir oor n jaar al.

Hi Gideon. Ja, lyk my dit is die oorsaak. Ek't gedink as ek bodylift doen dit sal werk maar ander rims lyk na die antwoord.
