Wouldnt the 26575 16 be the natural upgrade, or the 285 75 16? Theyre readily available

HI

245/75/16 1.3 %difference in diameter
Technically it used to be within 3% was the limit
Mainly for speedo accuracy

I have 2 sets of wheels for my PX Wildtrak. The original 18" alloys - 265X60XR18 and a set of PX steel wheels (X 6) with 265 X 75 X R16 Bridgestone D697 LT tyres. When I am going offroad I use the steel wheels. The Bridgestone dealer swaps them for me each time free of charge.
The 265 X 75 X 16 tyres bring the speedo up to nearly correct - 98 actual at 100 speedo (by GPS) and there is no apparent difference in fuel counsumption

Hi, Ive had my xls for 8 months now. replaced the the factory alloys with 16x8 p45. fitted 265 70 16 at. Should have gone 265 75 16. Stay with 16, better ballooning when on sand. I would have gone down to 15 diameter but right offset not available and was not sure of calliper clearance. Have fun
