Re: 17" tyres for T31's.


Sorry Tony, its just a little black box that can display 4 parametres ata time that you choose (RPM, speed, intake air temp etc etc), and you can adjust the spped reading in the Scannguage to reflect true ground speed with a GPS. Doesnt actually change the vehicle speedo read-out, I just have it velcroed to dash in front of speedo dial. (T30, middle of dash)
It does reset all engine management lights that I have found so [sign in to see URL] actually "push" anything into the ECU though.
Back on [sign in to see URL] me to maintain a legal speed limit with the larger ATs on the Xtrail, even though I found the larger tyres pushed the speedo closer to an actual true reading anyway, from the original tyre size.

Re:


Sorry guys,

The last couple of posts (or so) are better placed in existing threads covering "speedo accuracy" and which can be found [url=[sign in to see URL]

Am afraid it has no relation to the title of this topic if someone to do a search to find this info!

In regards to the Coopers 235/60 R17s - I've been happy with them. I had Cooper AT-R 225/something R15 on the old X-Trail and found them fantastic and hence why I put them straight away on the new X-Trail.

I'm heading on a trip North WA soon, and they'll be getting a good workout on gravel and dirt roads, so I'll be able to provide better feedback after I return from that.

Re: 17" tyres for T31's.


Well the Dunlops finally came off at 70,000kms. Interestingly did a long dirt road run (gravel) and within a minute of getting back on the bitumen, the LH rear blew (dramatically) at 110km/hr. Split inner sidewall. There was still plenty of tread left.

Put a set of Hero Atlanta 225/55 17s - keeping the BF's for the longer offroad trips. So far being all highway use, no complaints.

Some observations - the ESP does work with blowouts and the external wheel carrier looks appealing. (A previous blowout at speed in a non ESP equipped vehicle resulted in a serious accident).

John

sorry should read 225/60/17

Re:


Hey guys, could I please get your advice - I've read and searched through the many posts on 17" upgrades - I was thinking of running a 2**/65-r17 tyre, however I'm unsure if it will fit in the spare tyre well and I want to keep the same size for all 5 tyres.
215/65r17 - is nearly non existent
225/65r17 - some options exist
235/65r17 - more options exist

So first question is: will a 65 high tyre fit in the spare tyre well?
Second question is: I have been told that 235 tyres will raise the floor of the boot?
Third question is: will a 225/65r17 fit in there without raising the floor?

- From what I found:
1, if deflated to 5psi?
2, will raise floor slightly and needs to be deflated
3, as above but higher raise in floor

Re:


I run i my 2011 t31 225/65/17s
I went to a wreckers and got a 17alloy rim for $100 bucks for the spare and kept all five the same size
Note there is no way you will fit the spare in spare well
I bought a rhino tradie tray and kept spare up there
