View Full Version : Maybe Going 37's - Almost New Toyo MT 315's

Not committed to this yet, but after installing my Gen II F.O.R. suspension on my 80 and gaining about 1" of lift along with the shock travel spacing with the new custom shocks on that kit, my rig is perfectly set up for 37's and I already have 5.29's.

I bought a set of 315/75/16 Toyos last October, they have about a thousand miles on them (my rig is not a DD) and two wheeling trips (OCG and the Snow & Pizza run). Sidewalls are perfect, outer lugs have a bit of wear as OCG will do that to a tire, but otherwise in near new condition.

They run over $300 new, looking to get $240 a tire or $960 total.

I also have a 1 year old never run 35x10.5x16 Interco SSR as a spare. The narrower tire was just to keep spare size down (it will actually stand up behind the 3rd row in an 80). This is a ~$275 tire, I'd like to get $200 for it. $1150 if you want all five (this is five essentially new 35's for less than you can buy four, especially if those four are Toyos).

I'll be making a decision in the next 2-3 weeks, but think I am going to do it so post up if interested.

What, you're not going to go with the 39" Michelins? :eek: ;)

I know, what's wrong with me? They don't even need air :D

Too true. But...my lift really wasn't optimized for 37's before, and I was going to have to start tweaking it with potentially non-optimized results.

This new suspension is pretty much designed for 37's because I have over 6" from tire to fender on 35's and 5" of shock up travel on all four corners with 5" axle to bumpstop with 2" drops (the shocks are not quite fully protected in the rear). Adding another inch of tire means everything should clear perfectly (with the trimming I already have and no flares) with a 2.5" bumpstop it's all optimized for 37's without losing any shock travel in the system.

I can't find a good 17" rim with 4" backspace that fits over the 80 series hub, so prolly 37x12.5x16 trxus with 1" spacers if I do it.

That sounds sweet. I should have bought 37's as well, now that I have gears going in next weekend, and pull the 1" spacers out.

Yep, if I had known this suspension was coming out with these specs I would have waited, because it's exactly what I needed.

But that makes a great tire deal for somebody else :D

I might be interested in the spare. Just don't have a way to mount it yet. Working on a bumper for the runner this winter.
