Default Tire size options

Looking at changing the direction of my 4Runner. Picked up some new wheels and tires and wanted everyone’s opinion as to what you would do.

First is a set of 315 Goodyear MTR’s. I know this can be done without too much drama.
Some cutting and a possible body lift would be helpful. A re-gear to 4.56 or 4.88 would be required for my v6 I would think.









Option 2 is more involved. Pro Comp 40x13.50R17, Xtreme MT2 on some Raceline beadlocks.
What additional steps would be needed to get them to fit?
Too much trouble, any thoughts?






Thanks,

40s would be too much on the IFS. Unless you are going to put a solid axle up front.

I say 315s are the better of the two.

Yeah definitely stick to 35s, unless you want to do a major overhaul.

Go for 4.88 gears, especially with the V6 (will make it easier to drive).

35 MTRs are pretty beefy and will require a BL (1.5") and various trimming, etc. You may also have to limit steering angle a little as well to prevent rubbing at full lock and some compression.

40's at that ride height looks amazing.

Many of those crazy arctic trucks are IFS; how exactly does that work?











(p.s. how do I dynamically resize images posted here?)

They use huge body lifts. Playing in the snow vs the rocks are a bit different on components.
