    I am about to purchase a Toyota Land Cruiser D/cab and am concerned about the narrow track and of course the fact that one has to consider it being top heavy when loaded. I need maximum flotation and would like to go for bigger wheels (dia. and width) How big can one go without losing the the guarentee and upsetting the accuracy of the instrumentation, Comments would be appreciated.

    I have recently bought a 76, and have fitted 285/70/17. It’s making the speedo more accurate and at same real speed, the revs are lower. So I think it’s an advantage. With an aftermarket suspension and the consequent lift of about 75 mm, the size of the tires are not a problem as it’s not touching. About the top heaviness, I can’t comment yet from my own experience but I know for sure that they can take a load, but that may cause a top heavy feel, I think.its simply a matter of weight on top of the car, so I try to get the lightest roof carrier and overall the lightest accessories as weight is any cars biggest enemy. So I plan to drive around 110 max with a full load, to be on the safe side. In my mind a LC 70 series need quite a few improvements/modifications, but then it’s the best, I have seen many of them crossing the dessert effortlessly with a big load, that’s why I wanted one.
