#735273 - 07/04/06 03:28 AM Isuzu Rodeo Sport / Amigo tires size?
Anonymous
Unregistered

What is the bigger tires I can fit on Isuzu Rodeo Sport / Amigo w/o any modification. I am looking for new tires and the stock 245/70/16 aren't that cheap, so what other size I can fit w/o modification.

Thanks

well it sounds like you are looking to go to 15" rim thats the only way you are going to get cheaper tires

You might be able to fit a 30" x 9.50" x 15" Tire without any other mods, but Some people have said that the brake calipers might rub the 15" rims. It's basically a trial and error situation. My 2000 Came with 16"'s but the was able to get the 15" Rock Crawlers to fit.

My 99 Rodeo came stock with 235/75-15s on them. I think I remember someone saying that 30x9.5 should fit pretty easily. The rims will fit if you've got the right backspacing on them.

As for where to buy, I've always been a fan of Discount Tire. Don't know if they have them in your neck of the woods, though.

You CAN fit LT265/75R16 on there without a lift, and utilize your OEM wheels. All a lift does is change the ride height, and gains better articulation.

Whatever trimming you need to do with that tire is minimal an is typically just the wheel liner plastic crap that interferes.

You will be happier later when you do lift it to not have to go get new tires.

The 265/70R/16's would be a safer fit. It may still take a some minor trimming of the fiberglass overfender, which is very easy to do.

(P.S. - So what does the Ironman edition Rodeo Sport include?)

Basicly every available option for that model, plus the active suspension. Nothing fancy :)

The extra 5% on the height is minimal difference on the trimming and equates to a 32" tire, I would definitely go with the 75 series rather than 70. The extra sidewall is beneficial to deflection, slightly more clearance, and not a detriment if you are looking to wheel it.

Then again, I am a bit more aggressive than most and would just go straight to 33s, but thats a bit more involved on the trimming, and body lift than you want to do right now, so a compromise of fitting now and looking good later after lift is the LT265/75R16.
That is really the right choice if you plan to be wheelin. They are readily available too. Got my first set of those @ Pep Boys Futura Enforcer (same as the Cooper Discoverer MT) but a fraction of the cost. All 4 for <$500 with certs.

The 265/75R16's do look great on the Rodeo Sport with a 3" suspension lift, which is relatively easy to do and not expensive. The tire fills the wheel well very nicely and it looks like it was made for it.
