Re: Oversized Tires on T30? Is it possible, anyone done it?


Ah, I was looking in the wrong thread (Watagans instead of Yengo). I spent at least half an hour scouring the Intro's section and also the last few trip reports (as I recall a post by that member in one of the recent trop reports) but I still can't find who it was!!! Edit: What a shocking memory I have. Member is Timbo73 and his intro post is ]here. I am sure you are right when you said they are standard size (or the same as what I have now, which is only slightly larger than standard); I'll likely get them once the a/t have worn out (they're looking nearly half-worn after about 45,000k's!)

Re: Oversized Tires on T30? Is it possible, anyone done it?


OK, so with Taylor stating |offset=8]here that 15-50mm increase in tyre size is OK with recalibration of the speedo for the T30 (plated "MC"), does anyone know how much this recalibration would cost and where it would be done ?

Kev,

Around $[sign in to see URL] and there is a company at Carringbah that specializes in this and they will need the car over-night.

Surely it can be done cheaper than that.
I've had a speedo calibrated for around the $100 mark a few years ago.
Some auto transmission and diff specialist can also calibrate speedos.
I would definately let my fingers do the walking if this was me.

In that case all they have to do is change the servo or sun gear in the back of the speedo then and replace it with one of a different value.

Re: Oversized Tires on T30? Is it possible, anyone done it?


I have BFG 225/70/16's on mine. These are 4-5% larger.
I have tested on a highway and compared with GPS and it appears that the trip meter and odometer is also 4-5% less. This means my calculated fuel/100km is better than calculated since i have actualy travelled more km's than what the trip meter says.
This is also better for depreciation value as after 100,000km the odometer will be around 4-5000km less than actually traveled.

Has anyone tested this out aswell to prove this is correct?
A more accurate test is on a highway with few bends. The GPS will give a more accurate trip-meter reading.

I'm running 245/70/16's with a 50mm lift kit from superior engineering. Really filled out the wheel arches. Superior now has my xtrail on there site, but that was before I had the New Tyres put on. [sign in to see URL]

I'll up some pics when I take some later. Bridgestone At's all the way. I got the tyres from the trading post brand new on rims for $400. 18 bucks a tyre to change over. Clearances are a pretty tight fit, yet no rubbing on full lock. I think If I was full lock and going up a gutter then i might have some. I have 235/60/16's to go back to if I want I guess. 9.3 percent larger diameter than the originals so watching the speedo is pretty easy with a bit of quick calculation.
