thats sooo cool!!!! so do the tires rub at all when you hit a bump or something hard cause i love dat fitment!!! i wanna have my 620 kc sit like that!


Must have over looked this, sorry. I rolled the fenders just enough to where they don't hit the tires. However, if I put any weight in the back they do hit. I had a set of 14 in. wheels/tires and a 15 inch set and they cut alittle bit. Even with one set it didn't like it. So before I put anymore weight in the back I'll need to roll the fenders alittle bit more

okay I see. Well I usually put light stuff like bikes or trikes in the back of my Datsun. So if I was to do mine up like yours I shouldn't need to roll the fenders to much.. and how did you roll your fenders? I've seen a certain style of it dun before I was just wondering how you did yours..

All we did what use a 2 inch steel pipe (I think) hold it to the tire and push the truck back and forth while pushing down on the pipe to pull the fender out alittle bit at a time.

Don't want to do much at one time or push down too hard, cause then you'll get waves in the fender. With mine, unless you put one without the fenders rolled next to mine and compared them, you can hardly tell the difference

Okay cool. That's the same way I was thinking about doing it, just didn't know if you used a different way.

Yeah I was about 100 miles into it and my truck was already sitting on H, so I desided to turn back. When I got home the truck was rattling like something was coming apart, and when I shut it off it wouldn't restart. Next year I think I'm going to leave in the middle of the night when it's cooler out, and probably find me an electric fan instead of running the stock one. Tired of it getting hot when I drive it in the summer

So finally got around to messing with my truck. Swapped the starter for a new one, got it fired up, and drove it around saturday and sunday. My clutch is slipping under hard excel like going up on the freeway, so it looks like a clutch is next on the list. Also bullshitted with a 720 owner that lives in my complex.

Damn carrier bearing is also making noise like a mother fucker, mostly at lower RPMs. They're spendy little bastards

225/70/R16

 

225= width of the tire in millimeters

70= is the height of the sidewall in percentage of the tire width (in this case 70% of 225 or 157.5mm)

R16= is the width of the rim it fits

Haha also know that the sidewall height is for both above the rim and below the rim. So there is 78.75mm of tire above the rim and 78.75mm below the rim. So in the instance I gave above, that tire and rim choice would yield a total height of 22.2 inches.
