Thinking of trying overisze tyres on T31 18"


Hi Everyone, Ive had my exy nearly 3 months now and need a full set of tyres. Been doing a bit of reading on the forum and am leaning towards the Cooper CS4'. Now they do an exact tyre size which is 225/55/18 but i was thinking of trying to get some extra clearance and try the 235/65/18. First of all will they fit? I understand it will knock my speedo out a by about 8% which is not a problem for me but is there anything else i need to consider?

Anybody else tried to go bigger with the 18" rim?

235/65/18 won't fit without some mods the the wheel wells. The largest diameter tyre that anyone I know has put on an X-Trail is 736mm and in some cases that requires mods to the wheel well. The tyres you are talking about would be 763mm diameter.

Thanks mate, was hoping to get some extra road clearance with the bigger Tyre. Never mind will have to stick to the 225/55/18 then. Anybody know the best place for copper tyres brisbane northside?

Has anyone found a decent AT tyre for their 18" wheel? Or recommend a tyre suited to 70% sand/30% dirt mud??? I' ex looked all over here and elsewhere. Geolander ATS are pretty tough looking but how do they do on sand??
