Size matters

Been thinking, this is very dangerous.
Has anyone fitted 15" wheels on their FT?
What would be the advantages?
I had a look at this. 31 x 10.5/R15
17% more sidewall.

Die ouer Hilux het 15s opgehad. Jy kan basies meer afblaas, en dalk bietjie swakker handling op teer. Veral op draaie as bande paperig is.

Erik,
Ek nie regtig so bekommerd oor teerpad hantering nie.
gebruik die kar basies net vir naweek kar en as ons bietjie gaan toer.
Dink dit gaan meer help offroad en band pryse nogal n groot verskil.

31x10.5 R15 = R 2 922.00

Ek dink daai is nogal n bak plan, gee jou baie meer sidewall om af te blaas, asook bande is baie goedkoper en meer beskikbaar
Daai is presies die rede hoekom ek op my Fortuner groot 16" bande gesit om meer/hoer sidewall te kry
Maar praat so, pel van my se Hilux het nog steeds 15" bande op en werk baie goed
