Default Tires Recommenation...

I got a 04 montero sport, I've always had the tires that come with the suv, but I'm thinking into changing them into those big monster tires, and maybe lifting the suv a few inches, any suggestions, or pixs of anyone doing this to their suv!?!
Thankss! (;

If you do any off roading I would encourage you to go ahead with your plans to lift your Monty.
You can add a suspension lift of about two inches without have to do any other mods. You should be able to fit up to 33's on it with a modest lift, but you might be better off with 31's.
I'm running Old Man Emu. You can order the stiffness and valving that will best suit your needs.
Good Luck

Just changing to the A/T tread will make a big difference I wouldn't suggest changing wheels but a 265/70/16 or possibly 285/70/16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T will make a big difference.

How do you like your OME suspension? I have been debating upgrading my 04 with an OME 2" lift for sometime and my concerns are road handling and increasing the top heaviness off road.

I am very happy with the OME set up. I have the med. stiffness in the rear and the heavy up front. The road handling in fine. It is stiffer than the stock KYB's, but when I run the tire psi at 35 (unladen) it soaks up a bit of the on-road bumps.
Off-road they work fantastic! One of the first back country trips I took really tested the suspension. I was on a high speed desert trail and a big whoop snuck up on me... the rig was launched more than 20 feet down the trail! I was happy to find only some dirt and sand under the front bash plate.
I'm running E load tires, and the side walls give the rig more stability when the roof rack is loaded and the valving of the shocks and struts compensate for the higher center of gravity very well.
Good Luck
