Matt,

Have a look at the tyre size calculator HERE


Looks like they would be too big

G'Day All,

Is there any particular reason the BFG users in the thread go for the 225/70/16s over the 215/70/16s. Do both tyres still comply with the mathmatics earlier in the thread and people just prefer the extra width and height?

Cheers in advance,

Brenton

Brenton,

Actually the 215/70/16 would be more accurate in terms of speedo impact and clearance than the 225

Thanks Jalal,

I had a look on the tyre comparitor and saw the same thing. I was just curious as to why in the BFG in particular users chose the 225 over the 215.

Cheers

2 reasons really, 225/70 give you a bit of extra ground clearance (almost 20mm!) and i was told by my tyre shop that the 225 is easier to get as its the same size as some other awd cars, apparently they dont bring many 215s into the country.

Y WAIT,

Thanks for that. I am planning on putting a set of A/Ts on my exy. Was going to go for 235/65 Geolanders but I just can't get past the look of the BFG's emoticon My biggest concern has been the legalities of the change, however reading previous posts in this thread it seems when push comes to shove there are ways are it.

Go straight to the source. Email QLD transport with the tyre make and model and rim size you want to use and ask if legal. Personally I've just recently been told the same. That in QLD A/T tyres are illegal. Although I was told that I could have them fitted if I so choose. IE the onus is on me the driver to ensure my vehicle is roadworthy.

Curious...

So if I have tyres that are legal in NSW (or other states), but illegal in QLD, where do I stand if I get pulled over?
Are we suppose to run out & buy tyres per state before holidaying?
And what about those who live in border towns? emoticon emoticon
