I recommend the 275/70/18 size as a perfect compromise for the US spec wheels. They are just over 33", no spacer or lift required. They just barely barely touch the fender liner at full compression. I like the General Grabber AT2, but they have been superceded with a new tire model.

I think that last picture has a 30 mm spring spacer added

Hope I'm not derailing here, but I've got a set of Ashtaroth on my new-to-me W460 with unknown spacers and running into lug bolt problems:

1) The spacers don't completely line up with the back wheels, so only four bolts fit into the both the wheel and the spacer, and

2) It came to me with the shorter (32mm?) stock lug bolts and they're only going in about 5 turns. Ordered the longer (45mm?) bolts and they don't go in all the way.

I've got some H&R 31mm spacers on the way, and am wondering what length bolts you folks are running if you have this Ashtaroth/H&R spacer set up?

Normal G500 lug bolts are all you need

Where can you pick up a set of 18” Ashtaroth’s?

Anybody happen to have an Ashtaroth wheel mounted to their barn door spare wheel carrier? If so, would you mind posting a photo of how you have it mounted?

I just picked up a spare to replace the steel wheel on there and am having trouble fitting it to my w460 with barn doors.
