OFF-ROADING WHEELS

Post by ADB78 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 8:26 pm

Evening all.

Whats the difference in 18 / 19 and 20 inch wheels for off - roading. Anyone on the forum tested the different sizes ?

Smaller wheel = taller sidewalll = better off road performance.

For many 19 is the sweet spot.

20’s are terrible off road and easily damaged.

Biggest difference is the range, price and comfort of each of the sizes.

Ive gone from a 235-60-18 (Goodyear Wrangler) to a mild Yokohama All Terrain (with new wheels) in 245-65-17. The 17" wheels are much better over bumps and cost $AUD 50 less per tyre than the equivalent 18"s.

If you dont want to change wheel size, but want to improve your offroad traction, you can fit a 255-60-18 on the standard 18" rim or a 255-55-19 on the standard 19" rim.
