  • Hankook Tyres

    Hi Guys,

    Time to purchase some new boots, I've been doing a bit of research and stumbled across Hankook's Dynapro ATM & Dynapro MT's.

    My current tyre size is 265/65R17 and I was looking at going to 265/70R17 but have been told that's illegal here in QLD. He said I could go 255/70R17.

    So my question - eventually. Is anyone running these tyres on their Prado? Am I better off just staying with the std sizes as opposed to trying to change them?

    Prado GXL - 150 series - 2inch lift STD Rims

    Thanks
    Troy

    265/70 is perfectly legal in QLD. Find a new tyre guy as he obviously doesn't know shit. I'd go bigger (and I did). Std size sucks. The car was transformed offroad by going to a decent slightly bigger tyre.

    Wish list in order I'll get them: Sliders, 2" lift, E-locker, Winch bar with winch.

      Yes running them, They are pretty good. I have the ATM's. Lost about 1.5mm tread in 35,000kms. Overall Id rate them highly. Low noise, good grip, perform well in the wet & Sand etc.

      You will use more fuel going to a &0 series, and it will be slightly laggy on take off, Speedo may also be out slightly.

        Been running the ATM's for just over 2 years and 50K. Still plenty of tread depth. Very happy with the way they perform on road and up the beach.
