2869ral is helping us make sure our 30" x 9.5" wide tires do not rub at max travel. We are still working out the suspension but inches mater.

Presidio Patrol will operate on 15" rims and 2" leaf spring lift.....not final yet, might need shackles too.

CCV5 will run on 31" x 9.25" wide BFG All Terrains on 16" rims. New Alcan leaf springs will provide 1" lift but that is not enough. 2896ral now looking to fabricate some shackles adding another 1.5" of lift. Hopefully that will be enough.

None of this is final...but it will be by Friday.

Dave,
The prior owner of my 1969 Patrol mounted 1992-2000 Chevy Tahoe 9593334 (16'' x 7'', 6 x 5.5 Bolt Pattern) wheels. He had to bore the center of the front wheels to accommodate the Patrol hubs.

I believe you can also mount Nissan Titan 15x6x5.5, 1993-1998 Toyota T100 steel, 15”x6” 5.5 bolt or Toyota FJ 40 wheels.

Keith

P.S. I believe the 1969 Patrol had a 15" split ring (rim) wheel as original equipment. The 16" split ring (rim) wheel was from an earlier model year.

Keith,
Merry Christmas.
It was my experience that 16" rims require a 2" lift if BFG Mud Terrain used for (CCV5), which I thought were the best possible tires for my use. There are a number bias ply tires that may work without a lift. Presidio Patrol (CCV4) uses 15" rims and Cooper makes an excellent tire that does not require a lift.

This thread started off with a link to Procomp tires. My experience with Procomp tires was terrible. They are fake off road tires in my opinion. The 36" tires i ran on CCV1 for ten years punctured frequently with 90% of the punctures in the sidewall.Your selection my have more plies or maybe they have improved? CCV1 was used to rock climb on non professional trails while hunting and just about anything encountered other than flat asphalt were threatening.

Patrolling to paradise,

Need to replace my BFG AT's soon and I'm thinking of getting the Ironman tires. Just curious here if anyone has personal experience with this tire brand. If they are not worth buying, my second option is the Cooper STT pro.

I am running Cooper STT PROs on my Jeep and love them. I have about 23K on them now and they let you know they are mud tires.

Welcome Dave60,
I'm passing through Amarillo all the time, in fact this week. I must see your Patrol one of these days. I'm dim witted and lucky to be able to feed myself on most days without help from my friends. Tell me again....are your rims 15" or 16"?

I'd contact Chester, the guy that just bought that Utah barn find. I'll bet he will upgrade those wheels and cast off the originals. I was given some oem rims which i appreciate but be aware the older ones can leak around the rim seals. Hmmmm rim seals.... I wonder where they live? never seen them of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom....

No, but I bet ole Jacques Cousteau has seen his fair share of rim seals in his day. There be all kinds of seals around the Pacific Rim! :)

They are awesome tires. Better than k2 version. Better sidewalls with K3. The mud terrains are better for.......mud naturally..in my humble opinion based on our experience.

75% of tires on the Alpine loop are BFGs of one of these two flavors.

I ran KM2s on my Frontier and didn't care for them. That is why I switched to the Cooper STT PROs on my Jeep. I would go back to the KM3s on my Jeep if they had white letters, but I don't see that available at this time.

I know,,,I'm 70s and 80s old skool!
However, I would run a black wall on the Patrol. I don't recall seeing white letters in the 60s.

Hi all,
the time has come to replace the tires and wheels on the Minion Missile. It looks like BFGs are preferred tires. Can anyone comment on wheels? Not looking for anything fancy, just has to work. My patrol now has a 2" lift, done so that it can accomodate a little bit bigger tire.

Thanks all.

This is what I bought. However, still in the garage and not back on the rode yet. Cannot comment about rubbing anywhere. Don't have the lift to accommodate the 33" P78 Buchshot Mudders yet either.
