  • Upgraded tyres from Dunlop AT22 to Hankook dynapro RF10 ATM

    I have just changed tyres after 70000km on my 2013 VX Prado and these are great. Much cheaper than the KO2 and not as aggressive thou still capable. Has any others chosen this tyre?

    Yep I did the same a couple of weeks ago. Went from stock tyres to 285/70/17's in the RF10 all terrains.
    Happy with them so far (only been doing highway driving). Not too much road noise and all the feedback I heard about them before buying was positive.

        That would really mess with the gearing. Just beware that it is probably illegal under ADRs if you get pulled over, or if you have a crash it will void your insurance.

          It's only a 2" diameter change from standard. It's absolutely fine and heaps of people run that size tyre on 150's. Entirely depends what state you're in as to whether it's legal or not. In VIC the only guideline is that the combined suspension and tyre lift is no more than 75mm. So a 2" lift gives you 50mm of height lift. A 2" larger diameter tyre gives you 25mm of lift meaning 75mm overall.

          Gearing change is negligible, I haven't noticed it since changing. Might be an extra 100-200rpm @ 100kmh.

          Speedo is now bang on correct, whereas it used to be 105kmh on the speedo meant I was doing 100kmh

            I would hav3 thought that at a fixed speed a larger diametre tyre your reduce the engine rpm given the tyres bigger circumference?

            I noticed my speedo was more accurAte with a larger diametre tyre although th3 downside was th3 vehicle lost some torque
