Thread: Tyre size

  1. #1

    Tyre size

    Sorry if this has been posted and answered before.

    I have not made any changes to the suspension!

    It's time for new boots for the car, Im looking at BFG 165/70R17.

    Will these fit?

    according to :
    https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?whe...cl=50mm&sr=0mm

    there should be no real problems.

    Sorry, forgot to mention I have a 2015 Prado GXL, start of the new shape/remodel/2.8TD...

    Hi Andrew, 165/70R17 sound pretty skinny. Are you sure you don't mean 265/70R17? 165 are 100mm skinnier than original fit.
    Cheers

    haha, didn't even pick up on that Trev. I'm sure its a typo, they don't even make 165/70/17's.

    Just beware that some tyre sizes in 265/70x17 do not fit in the rear wheel cover.

    See here for a small list --> http://www.pradopoint.com.au/showthr...re-wheel-cover

    No.
    Bluestorm mafia and maybe one or two other vices.

    Thanks for the reply. Meant also to say the reason for going to 275 is that there is a 50KG gain in load capacity.

    You still cannot exceed axle or manufacturer's posted limits so that is moot. Bit taller without going to a 70 profile is why I ran 275s for a while.
