  • ANR4636 rims

    Has anyone had any problems with tyre fitment on these?

    They are brand new "all makes" OEM made in romania [iirc, same as genuine LR...]

    Brand new LT 235/85 R16 General grabber HD

    The tyre rubber is slightly proud of the outer lip on both sides.

    The lip is usually proud of the tyre, enough the weight to mount to

    Thanks

      Thanks Mark, not sure the photos that clear, because I'm trying to show something that isn't there, the "lip"

      Here's a photo of the same tyre, on the original 272309 rims. There is a full lip. And the tyre sits inside the rim

      On the ANR the tyre sits proud of the rim. There is no lip

      Edit to add. ANR, The rim sits inside the tyre. 272 the tyre sits inside the rim

        Well it might be mostly the tyre.

        We mounted the unused spare kumho road venture LT 235/85R16 onto the ANR and the ANR lip is back.

        So the ANR lip is not as deep/ same shape as the 272 but the general grabber HD does not fit on an ANR

          It looks like the Grabber tire has a "rim protector" lip. A lot of tires have that now, where the rubber is thicker right against the rim to help prevent curb rash. Not sure how well they actually work.

          You can/could still have the tires balanced using inside stick on weights.
          There is nothing more dangerous than those who seek to alter the will of men through force or deception rather than logic.

            Thanks very much for that info.

            So after some furious googling, it is possible that some sizes of the grabber HD have a "rim protection ring (fr)"

            The manager of the tire store is asking the general tire rep. All the tire guys and the manager looked at this, and no one knew what was up....

            Seems the 273 rim is so thick, the rim protection ring, doesnt cover the rim

            And the kumho probably doesnt have a rim protection ring.

            You can squeeze a wheel weight in there.

            thanks again.

              The General Grabber AT2 tires on our old D2 Kalahari had a sizable rim protector lip, but it didn't prevent wheel weights being installed on the aluminum rims.
