Wildtrak from Lilydale/Vic

Post by child_of_the_sunfish »

Hey guys,

Took delivery of a MY2021 Wildtrak 2.0L Bi-Turbo December last year (2021). Have since ordered a Bespoke Off-road Accessories Tub rack and support struts (https://www.bespoke-offroad.com.au/tubracks) due start of February in order to mount Milwaukee Packout storage tubs and a rooftop tent. Have also enjoyed playing tetris with the packout gear I currently store in the boot.

So happy with this car, prior to this I had a 2017 Hilux SR5 that was great but lacked the tech pack and creature comforts that the Ranger has; adaptive cruise control, remote start and Apple CarPlay. One question though, a lot of guys on my job site with Wildtrak's have huge tyres that stick out 50mm+ past the side of the car - how do they do this? I was told that old man emu suspension with a 2 inch lift was the way to go for a better drive and for getting to the campsite that I use in Alexandra, but can't see how that would give the wider tyre looks? Any input is appreciated. Cheers fellas.

If they are the wildtrak wheels they would be using spacers.

If they are after market wheels to go 50mm out you would need a +0 0r +5 offset.

Iam at +20 offset and my tyres poke approx 20mm.

Standard Wildtrak wheels are +55

Thanks legend, I'll have a look. They're all aftermarket wheels but I have the black ford ones
