Hello,
I'm looking at getting some of the above on wolf rims (in the other threads with this size tyres on 110s I couldn't find any mention of what lift they might've had).

First off it looks like these are ok on wolfs (6.5" width):

I've got a G-reg 110:

She's had OME 767s fitted on the front:

and 755s on the rear:
http://www.devon4x4.com/index.php?page=shop.pro...art&Itemid=14

According to those links that means she's had a 30mm lift up front and 55mm at the back. Is that ok with the 33.3" diameter of these tyres? I'm expecting I might have to adjust the steering stops but is there anything else I should watch out for (i know the wolfs mean i'll need to torque the nuts up a bit more)?

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers,
Ian

Ian, standard fit tyres on a 110 (7.50R16) are nearly 32 inches in diameter , so can't see any problems.Know of people running 285/75R16 on standard ride height Land Rovers without issues.

Cheers for clarifying that. Other than hunting for some 255/100 (9.00r16) michelins I've read about in other posts these 255/85s seem to be the tallest I can find that'll go on a wolf rim.

Thanks,
Ian
