I love the traction, the limits of which I will not reach.

In a 1000kg vehicle with lift I simply don't require them.

I have worn 2 sets out now (almost) and as I am driving slower I will buy the ever so slightly narrower ones to suit my rims (15" x 8").
Significantly cheaper too.

The machine gets tweaked.

Remember Dalton that I use this everyday and log 60,000kms a year in it.
Not for show my friend.

When I hammer it (and I do) it is on a private road.

Its a Gravel road too.
My full boost testing is done on a grass airstrip about a half mile long.

Hey Dalton, to let you understand..
I have the Woman of my dreams, I am weeks away from being a Dad,
My car is almost sorted,
too much to lose and nothing to prove to anyone.

I have seen some sombering car wrecks lately and the weapons grade arse in the HP car factor seems to be the common factor.

This is well worth a read, It is written by a British Police driving instructor,
Take a minute and read it.

I have different offset on the fronts to the back, strangely I suppose.

I have Lseries (EA82) lower control arms and custom castor rods.
Gives it about 2 inches total extra track in each front, fixes the camber issues and allows castor fun.

So, the front rims are suited to a nissan navara
the rears are for a 1991 landcruiser.

It lines up perfectly!
It took me a long time to suss that out grasshopper, but it wears out tyres absolutly flat and even, no shoulder scrubbing or toe wear issues at all.

Have fun...

LPSCbrumby, hows it going Dude, You are in Oz I see.
Regarding your comment....Every gearchange and every minute I have to hold myself back!
It's like a big road bike...too tempting (but I must).
100kmh = 3000 rpm
The TD05 gives full boost at 3500 rpm (16 psi), overtaking is a light squeeze and whooooooosh.
Much safer to spend as little time on the wrong side of the road I say!
