Yeah, i can imagine what you see. drool.gif But i think the 22' inch rim will burn a hole in the pocket, while the low profile tyre will incinerate your wallet sweat.gif Something i find out about low profile tyres:

Disadvantages are:
* Much more road noise
* A stiffer ride, far harder than conventional tyres
* Price

Advantages are:
* Better handling and grip
* Far superior traction and braking power compared to ordinary tyres
* Looks thumbup.gif

Having said so, the last advantages point seems to outpower all reasons. Lol. Anyone has any idea how the rim and tyre costs?

You bought 2 units for business purposes? How is the maintenance cost so far? Been looking for a list of maintenance cost for Triton but couldnt find it OL yet. I am getting my unit next Monday! thumbup.gif

Yeah mate! I used to drive an slightly underpowered normal sedan car. Probably because it was second hand car during my 1st job time anyway. When I first test drive a 4x4, the two things that capture me the most was 1. My seating position was much higher than the cars beside us and with the wide windscreen, it was really a different feeling! 2. When i hit rpm 2.5 above and the turbo engine kicks in, i feel like hercules pushing a toll truck :3 The DID commonrail is indeed something biggrin.gif

Yea bro... Mine kicks in around 1.9 though... The power is like keep pushing the truck forward and forward... Going up genting have bever been easier with turbodiesel... Advantage is we can have wider eye sighg when driving... Big wheels, jz ran anythinh over in case of emergency... And everyone gives way when they see it's a truck tailing them... Lot of advantage over smaller size vehicles... Especially cutting queue... Hahahah

Haha mate you are right. Last time i used to give way to all those big wheel big size cars tailing me in the highway vmad.gif , Now its my turn. Hahaha! *Kidding la.. My job requires me to travel alongside East Coast regulary. I lost count how many times i almost die trying to overtake some lorries. And the bumpy road was a pain in the ass. Hope having a 4x4 will ease things up. Although i am still not 100% expert about cars in this category, in terms of maintenance cost, commonrail engine, accessories and maybe... how to park this kind of car! sweat.gif

Sorry not really farmiliar with the 4x4 world yet. Got a photo of your car to share? blush.gif

Guys, one standard triton tyre of 245 x 16 x 70' cost 1k above? shakehead.gif All 4x4 tyres are that expensive? With 60% City 40% highway driving, i wonder how long the tyre would last?

these tyres last quite long according to a friend who drove a ranger longer than me.
my sabah fren told me of some one there(currently the one and only in KK) who owns 30" sport rims.

^ Walao damn, kena racuned already rclxub.gif rclxm9.gif doh.gif drool.gif rclxms.gif

A fully mod Triton looks something like that huh. Very ganas, rugged, like ready to hit the mountains. I see bumper guard, bug shield, additional side mirror, front light cover, side mirror with signal, upper window shadder, modified upper exhaust, upper spot light, upper carrier, side door cladding and lots of stuff i never thought before. Pants down rclxms.gif The wheel, seems still 16' inch only? *serious poisoning here cry.gif Looks cool. But i might not modified mine to that extend. Wait my colleague all think im planning doing jungle self exploration sweat.gif At the moment i am thinking of adding these on a solid white color Triton:

1. Gear/engine/steering lock. *Considering 4x4 is a hot cake for thief nowadays, this is first on my priority list!
2. Front and rear lamp crome cover.
3. Front stainless steel bumper K-Bar.
4. Side mirror with signal
5. Leather seat covering add-on.
6. Window tinting - make the car look a bit sexy :3
7. 22 inch rim. (still researching the costs)
8. Low profile tyre (still researching the costs)

Depends on budget la. Right now, kereta pun tadak lagi*That website looks good. Very 4x4 specialized blush.gif

Leather seats add-on cost approximately RM980, but can nego for lower. It covers the front and back passenger seats (Side door not included lo)The original triton seats are okay, but i just dont like the fabric's stripes and color a bit. tongue.gif Well, you are right though. I think the low profile tyre does defeats the purpose if its for city driving most of the time and the rim is easily damaged. Gaya only no use. Need to be practical, good point.

Lol. Not trying to be bias, but that video seems very one sided. The reviewer gave ranger/triton a 10/0 score sweat.gif Overall i think all 4x4 cars have their individual specialty and attractiveness.
