I've had numerous people ask about my tires and rims, so here's the goods:

Rims: Toyota 4X4 truck (around '92 model)
Tires: 215/75/15. These measure 27.5" on these rims @ 32psi.

Very minor fender clearancing needed at front and rear bottom edges of all fenders.

BTW: these are mounted on a 1987 GL Wagon with 4" OZified lift. Here is the latest pic:

stock on an outback is 215/70r15 isn't it?

I like how you shot the pic from very low to create that bigger-than-life effect.

What about the offset/backspacing of your rims?

Hey I'll add to the list :)

1988 GL wagon
3" BYB Lift
15" steel pug rims (4.5 or 5" of backspacing I think?)

30" x 9.5" Baja Radial AT barely fit after much trimming and bashing.

235/75 R15 Liberator AT (about 29" x 8.5") fit nice after clearing for 30"s :brow:

* note all tire manufactures are not the same. sizes can be drasticly different between manfuactuerers, models from the same manf. and even differences between identical models from the same manf.

** also note tread type and pattern play a key roll in tires fitting. if you go with big lug MTs exepct to require more room vs. a more narrow tread pattern on say an AT, AS, or M+S.
