Fender flares ...
Looks like a bit of work ahead, does it have 15" EL falcon wheels? They look cool but they have the wrong off set so they will make your steering heavy. I put 15" Mitsubishi Magna wheels on mine and it fixed the steering issues i had with the ford wheels.
Yes they are, came with the car but the tyres are good so helpful when making her legal. Yes does make the steering hard, so what offset did you use? I want to go like stupid deep dish wheels 10” with fender flares... I don’t think that will help the steering at all haha
I put magna wheels on mine, But i think newer falcon wheels would also work AU or newer. Lots of wheels to choose from as Nissan, Mitsubishi, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, and Toyota all have the same 5 stud pattern, just find something that has a more positive offset. I know they don't look as cool, but they do make the hilux steer much better.
How do i screw up the photos on this site everytime....damnit
