Great looking tyres & alloys. Any updates on to when your MM540 will be ready. Look forward to seeing pictures of the completed job with those wheels on.

Hi Randeep,
Just wanted to know if you have done anything(modifications) with the knucle bearings? I understand that with such massive tyres there is some precaution to be taken to avoid wobbling and subse quently breaking of the knuckle bearing, especially during off roading.

Great set of tyres
Monster Tyres for your monster truck

Just adding to what Susan has commented, I think that you might need spacers for these tyres as well. As you must have seen in my thread the tyres on the Rubicon lookalike are 32/11.50/15's. So 3" spacers have been fabricated and put on the jeep. Though you might just not need 3" but still 1" or 1.5" might be required.
As 32/11.50/15's translate to approx 290/75/15's

Just get this checked out before the last moment so that this small thing does not hold up your jeep at the last moment.

Thanks Harjeev.

Yes I am getting 1"spacers for the tyres as suggested my Romiji at the OTR. Also they would act as plates for my 160mmPCD rims as I was unable to find a 16" rim with 139.7 mm pcd and having only 5 holes.

Cheers !!!!!!!!

This is experienced on sandgrips also, while turning the jeep with the steering completely on to one side, the inside of the tyre starts rubbing with the mudguard.
Technically, Harjeev has already commented on the size of the spacers!

@ susan3004 - Is it possible for you look out the history of my vehicle also? Me and my friend have a bet going on. We both are pretty sure that the jeep has had a major accident. I am of the opinion that a tree fell over it or similar. My friends says it rolled over.
Been trying ways to find this out, Maybe you can help.

It is a northern command vehicle depot auction vehicle. It bore number
'00B-079517W'

cheers

Use the search feature. Plenty of information on army rims and there is also information on how to upload pictures.
