New wheel problem

Recommended Posts

Have just tried out set of new wheels with 750x16 muds on. Looked a huge improvement till we realised the exhaust tail pipe was in contact with the rear near side tyre! Tried to see if any movement possible with the holding bracket but it only has one position. It is a standard 200Tdi exhaust tail piece that I fitted myself.

These are hardly vast tyres so sure I am not the first person to have tried. Somehow the pipe needs to be moved back and perhaps up but suspect it needs some welding for a new bracket placement???

Any ideas how best to resolve this one so I can fit the new wheels?

I also have a blue 1991 200tdi 90.

To fit bigger tyres, (33 x 12.5 x 15), on i had to have the exhaust changed. I had the rear section removed along with the muffler and had an exhaust shop make me up a new piece that came through between the tub and the chassis and exited higher and closer to the back.

Hmm. I think it is pretty normal. Seen lots of others looking similar to an untutored eye.

Exhaust bracket on LR rubber suspended off the original attachment to the bracket on the chassis as per it was before.

Have attached an image just in case.
