I have found some Patrol GU rims and wheels. They are 235x85x16's on 16x6 rims with a 35 offset. I currently have 235/75/15's



Looking at https://www.wheel-size.com/size/mitsubishi/pajero/1993/ it appears that 6 inch pajero rims have a 33mm offset, 6.5 inch rims a 20mm offset and 7&8 inch rims a 10mm offset.


So the tyre remains the same width, the wheel remains the same width and the offset appears to be only 2mm difference, that seems ok doesnt it?


The centre bore of the patrol is 110 vs 107.1 of the pajero but that should be fine as it is a steel rim.


What do you think?

My NJ 2.8TDI had 235/85r16s on it when I bought it 200,000km ago. Mounted on 16x6" generic Jap rims that were fitted from the factory to Tritons and Rodeos in the '90s.

Never even contemplated having an issue with scrubbing.

I don't know the offset of the top of my head.

I would suggest your 16x6 GU rims should fine. I expect they would be very little offset, unlike the wider GU rims that would have significant offset to fill the big flares.

on a side note it appears car manufacturers increase the offset as the wheel gets skinnier so that the inside line of the wheel is approx the same distance from the car no matter the width of the wheel.


another example is a GU Patrol. 16x8 rims have a 10mm offset and 16x6 rims have a 35mm offset. This would make the inside of the rim of an 8 inch sit 4 inches + 10mm (111.6mm) and the 6 inch 3 inches + 35mm (111.2mm) in from the hub face.

Thats what I meant, and a lot better way to explain it.
I got the numbers mucked up in my head
