    I am now running the 13"x5.5 wheels and Winterforce tires that are available at:


    Prior to that I had the ITP wheels and Carlisle All Trail. I do most of my running on paved roads, dirt and gravel roads, and logging trails in the mountains of West Virginia. I found the Carlisle was very noisy on paved roads and vibrated at about 70kph on paved roads. They were great in heavy mud and on trails.

    I'd recommend both the tires and wheels from John at Ulmer Farm Service. He is very much up to date on tire options.

    Steel rims? Which ones cross over

    Wondering what domestic vehicles have steel rims with the 4x110mm pattern that would mount onto the Daihatsu's? Is there a 7" steel rim that cross' over with the right offset?

    i just bought a set of mazda wheels 13 inch they fit the rear fine but the hole in the center is to small to go on the front . same as the wheels off of my rhino. they like about 4mm fitting the front hub. i found some 14 inch itp alum or steel that will fit if the offset and the lugs will work but they are 60 to 70 per wheel .... o well......i think i will cut the center hole out and try that on the mazda wheels............

    I've had to have the opening enlarged on wheels at a machine shop B4. Not a big deal unless they have tires mounted. Good Luck.

    I had the hub opening on one wheel enlarged at a machine shop with the tire on it. But it cost me $70.

    I stopped by my friendly local tire shop this weekend, looking for some "Gnarly" street legal Mud and Snow tires for my 92 Daihatsu Hijet. This shop is a BIG, full service tire shop, with hundreds of used rims and tires in inventory, as well as the usual new stuff. They also like to fool around with special projects, and have helped me out before, with my SOA lifted Suzuki Samurai [ 30" Mud Terrains] and with my 4X4 Toyota LE van [ 27"x8.50 R 14" Mud Terrains ]. They did the tires and the wheel alignments for these two rather unusual beasties, and I had many trouble free miles on and off road with their help.

    I already have new 12" street legal tires on the Hijet [ here in Canada we can drive our KEI trucks on the hiway, so most of our KEIs already have street legal tires on them, to pass federal import and provincial licensing inspections ]. These tires are not particularly agressive, but I have already successfully tested them in snow, in 2WD and 4WD, and at highway speeds [ over 110 KPH ]. They handle surprisingly well around corners too.

    These particular tires are
    145/80 Marshall KR11 Steel belted radials.

    I was not limiting myself to 12" tires, and even had a set of near new BFG AT 27"X8.50" R 14" tires in the box of the hijet, which just came off my last Toyota 4X4 van, just in case they might have a set of 14" rims to fitthe Hijet's 110 MM 4 bolt pattern.

    What a disappointment.

    Not only did they not have 14" rims to fit but they didn't have any 13" rims either.

    they could not help me with a high tread Mud and Snow tire in 12" or 13" .
    Apparently, new M&S tires, in 12" and 13", are now being made with much finer tread patterns. They suggested that if I wanted "Gnarly" 12" or 13" tires, I'd have to look around for someone with OLD stock.

    I guess I'm left with no alternative, but to cram those 14" BFG ATs on to the Hijet.
    can anyone out there cross reference the 110 MM 4 bolt pattern Hijet to some other brand [ ? import car? ] with a 13" rim?

    I did some looking for you. It appears that the orginal 79-84 Mazda RX7 had a 4-110mm bolt pattern and came with 13" x 5.5" rims. 12mm x 1.5 lugs and a medium +20 offset, Center Bore size unknown.

    I run the 25" Maxxis Bighorns which are a great tire for mud and hardpack trail. THey are a 6 ply and I run 14 lbs in the front and 10 in the rear. Love em! I can still play and sling it around if I want and when I put in 4x4, they will not break traction if I do not want them too.

    Here is a pick before I had it camo'd. It has the 25's on ITP Type 7 wheels.
