Unimog u1000 rim size upgrade
« on: May 21, 2020, 08:30:57 am »
Hi guys, got a old u1000 on 20 inch rims, they look lost on the old gal. Wanted to put 24 inch rims on? There flat rims so would I need spacers and would they even fit? Thanks in advance

Can you show us a picture of the rims you intend to use, are you concerned that they wouldn't have enough offset to clear? what are the rims off & are the tyres suitable for whatever you are doing with the u1000.

I agree, a picture of the rims would be good

If you fit 24 tyres you will add mote unstrung weight look at fitting larger tyres before changing rims a nice size is 425/70R 20
