I have just ordered a new 3 litre t/d 4wd Rodeo. Does anyone know if my second spare wheel off my 2000 2.8 litre Rodeo will fit the new vehicle. The dealers couldn't tell me believe it or not.

It should fit, just need to check ball joint clearance on the front.

We bought a new 3.0 litre T/D Rodeo last year. Great vehicle and very conomical.
The tyres that came with our Rodeo where Bridgestone Dueler A/T..245/70R16..six studs on the wheel.
I hope your as satisfied as we are.
Good luck.

i can believe it , the same as we dont know what we are comparing.
the wheel offset is the same so will fit.
the ra rodeo has 7 inch rims. if you look at the side of your old rim the marking will tell you if you have 6 or 7 inch
but if you are talking about the tyre this depends what model you have and what tyre size is on it. the lx is different to the lt. the lx came with 205r16 and the lt 245/70r16. this means about 15mm difference in outside diameter. as a second spare i would'nt worry about it and use it.
so the answer is most probably yes or maybe.

LX with 205R16 and LT with 245/70R16. In RA Rodeo's, the LX uses the same size tyre as the LT, which is the 245/70R16. The only difference is the rim that they are mounted on. The LT - alloy, and the LX - steel.

But in answer to the original question, yes the 16x6" rims fitted with 205R16 will fit onto RA's however they contravene the tyre compliance placard fitted to the vehicle as far as speed and load rating go.
If the RA was fitted all round with the previous models 16x6" 205R16 and was involved in a bingle, could make insurance claim difficult.
Tyres and wheels being compliant are one thing an assessor looks at when assessing a vehicle for a claim.
