Greetings all
I have a standard Hilux 2013 SR 4wd dual cab. The vehicle came with standardDunlop AT20 tyres (225/70R17C) on the standard Toyota rims. The tyres will need replacing within another 2,000km so I am thinking of changing the rims to the standard SR5 alloys they people are advertising on eBay. The alloys are 17x7.5" with a 30+ offset, most rims are carrying 265/65R17 tyres on them. The rolling circumference is 5% higher than what I'm driving on now but will be corrected with 245/65R17 tyres.

Question is, will these new rim/tyre combination be legal without having to fit flares onto the vehicle?
Thanks in advance :-)

the rims will be ok only
if they do not protrude outside the line of the mudguards if they do then its a roadworthy issue ,

think this is a common thing asked in the hilux forum, if you elect not to go with the flares then you will see extra mud and dirt flicked up onto the doors.

Check the weight capacity of the rims. Some alloys are lesser rated than equiv steels

Thanks for your feedback fellas, much appreciated. Yes, I didn't even think about mud and dirt kicking up onto the doors, may have to rethink this over again. BTW, just saw a hilux SR5 with flares. This guy's tyres were protuding way out past the mudguards. He'd be an obvious target for the authorities.
