Say you just lifted your L300

Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

Mmm Black Rock 909-B. A pity they don't come in 16" though, because my next set of tyres will be 235/85R16.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Great, thanks. What’s our bolt pattern?
And your 235/85, is that with a lift?

6x5.5
I would expect 235/85-16's to be a tight fit even w/ a 2" lift... no way they fit w/o one.

The centre hole is unusually large. I'm guessing you didn't notice this post in the Technical Reference Library: http://www.delica.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=18250

No lift, but I had to remove the front steps and "modify" the front arch a bit.

I've ordered the 235/85/16 KO2's, now just need to find pretty much any black rim that'll fit...
