265/70R16 tires on nonlifted Pathfinder?

Recommended Posts

These will be approx. 31” in diameter. Will there be rubbing issues without a lift in your opinions? There are  255/65R16 on that are 29” that do not rub. MTG

It's doable. My father runs this size on his stock Terrano Regulus RS-R. They only rub on full-lock downhills.

It works, we run it and it runs a little in reverse but nothing big

Yes, a wider offset rim will worsen the rubbing by increasing the radius of the turn. My father uses the stock wheels. I'm running 31x10.5r15 muddies on OEM wheels with no rubbing.

I have the same size all terrains on stock wheels with no issues. According to the manufacturer my 31 inch tires actually measure at 30.5.

Very likely.  I bought these recently (BF Goodrich for $105 from Walmart) and they rub (front during reverse turning, back during full  load full suspension travel).  I guess rim offset matters too.

You are correct, sir.  It's a 2007... converted it for trail use (reamed out seat tube for dropper, slackened head tube with Angleset and running lighter wheels).  Still heavy, a bit twitchy but still too much bike for my skillset.

 

What do you ride?

Haha!  We should start a bike thread (sorry OP for hijacking).

 

The Elka was tuned for the DHR (under MRP now).  The DW-link was notorious for spiking near the end of travel... I started with a DHX on this bike (tuned for FSR suspension) and I was bucked a couple of times.  This Elka has been pretty good.  I also have a Vector HLR Air which I really like (but blew out the damper at Northstar).  I like how the air shock gives me a pedaling platform and makes preloading off jumps more predictable.

Nice ride! What type of rims are these? What's the offset/backspacing? I have an 04 Chinook and I'm looking at 245/75/16's on 16x8 rims but I'm not sure if -19 offset is too much or will stick out too far...

It's discontinued but the specs are here:
