I was going to go with BFG KO2 255/85R16 too. I have a set of wolf rims on my FFR. Is there another rim which has a bit more negative offset though as I wouldn’t want the extra 20mm all on the inside to scrub the suspension bits

And does anyone know the offset of the existing split rims vs a wolf rim?

:)   THANKS LAURIE, are the new tyres as tall as the hi milers?, I wouldn't like to drop any road speed?/Do those rims comply with requirements??TONA.

No mate, they aren't as tall, obviously they drop the gearing slightly but I haven't found it to be issue for me when travelling at 100kmh. I did look at the larger diameter 255 BFGs but went with the 7.50 16 equivalent to have common tyres with my 110 County.

I do not know anything about compliance, it has not been an issue with annual inspections for rego here and D1 rims are often seen on 130" LRs  which have the same suspension as the RFSVs

Could be a good opportunity to take a look at the condition front end bushes and the steering damper

I found the combination of split rims + HighMilers just about impossible to finely balance.

(I reverted to D1 tubeless with BFGs)

Right you are dugite they got discovered on roadworthy. The right side ballpoint fell out when I pulled the retaining clip out.

;)HI DUGITE, Have a rfsv as well, am thinking of upgrading my rims/ tyres what would you recommend, I do a bit of off roading  about 20% rest on the black stuff,THANKS TONA,.

Hi tona, I found a very handy tool here https://tiresize.com/wheel-offset-calculator/
Even has a visual of your new setup before you launch into it. I think the standard perentie rim offset is 33mm. Not sure about the rfsv. Have to measure it up
