You might want to take a look thru some of the members sheds, there should be prenty of pics in there you can check out. Also, put up your location in your profile so we know where you're from.

If you look in my shed I'm running 265 75 R16. Not on standard rims but my aftermarket rims are exactly the same size as the stock ones. I'm also running stock suspension... :( ....... still... :roll: :cry:

Daying that.
I would say they are 8" rims with about a +20 or +15 offset

similar to my play rims

No rubbing at all even on standard suspension.

The steelies weight 17kg each and when combined with heavy muddies screws the ABS up big time.
Handling with the muddies was always going to be a compramise and they effect the handling more than the rims

Have a look in my shed for more photos. They are pretty crappy and I will see if I have some better ones

No, they won't rub, even with +25 offset. Like others I'm convinced that the ML/MN was designed for a 265 tyre (like the MK was and Challenger is) and the 245s fitted were just a cost saving measure.

What he means by "screw with the ABS" is that the extra unsprung weight of a steel wheel and bigger tyre stops the ABS from working properly. Essentially the brakes aren't powerful enough to stop the heavier wheel from rotating, so you don't lock up and the ABS, with no lockup detected, never comes in to effect. Been known for a long time but people just ignore it for the sake of saving a hundred bucks on an alloy wheel.

They will not rub even at full flex and steering rotation.
ABS doesn't work as well with the extra weight. You need more presure on the brake pedal. The KO2's will help as they are not as heavy

They will sit pretty flush, but it all depends on the individual tyre as some bag the sidewalls more than others.
My +15's I think are the perfect offset, so much so that I have now purchased a set of +15 alloy rims for my play set and I will be moving the steelies on to a new owner
