    Tyre choice

    So, it's time I changed out my old (original) Duellers on my 2013 y61 ST 3.0. Many have suggested to go the 33inch path (I have the 2inch lift with 2 degree castor correction). So on that not, with stock rims, should I head towards the Nitto terra grappler LT or the Toyo open country A/T2 in the flavour of 285/65/17? Thoughts are welcome

    I've got the same set up and I recently purchased the nittos. No complaints so far.

    Put Nitto Trail Grapplers on my GU about 6 months ago(265/70/17 which are close to 33`s). No complaints so far. They do make some road noise but barely noticeable with the windows up.

    Are 2013 y61 ST 3.0 “stock rims” steel or metalised plasticy cast crap Timbo Mate?
    If the later, fark them off quickly and faithfully downgrade/upgrade to proper cheap steelies in either 16” diameter for metric size rubber or 15” for imperial 33x10.5 ish tyres…opinion only

    My rims are factory 17`alloys. Have never had a problem with them and have been over some rough ground. My original duellers (been on since new and have done just over 90000 km's) have about 5mm left so need to be done soon. I'd rather stick with original rims but as I do 99% road and the rest mainly beach with a few trail weekends thrown in, then I'd rather go a narrower tyre than a wider tyre (that may rub). So the choice is now a 2 horse race between going 265/70/r17 or the 285/70/r17 on stock rims.
