Hi sshep, have a look at the tyre placard or the owners manual they should list aternate sizes.
My Jackaroo come with the same size 245/70/16 but I am also able to fit 225/75/16 or 235/70/16 which have a similar diameter.
I am going for 225/75/16 BFG which is more common and cheaper.

hi sshep,

245x70 r 16 = 754mm standard

245x75 r 16 = 774mm 10 mm increase ground clearance, same width

265x70 r 16 = 777mm 12 mm 20mm wider

265x75 r 16 = 804 mm 25 mm 20mm wider

on my rodeo i run on road 31x10.5 r 15 = 772mm

off road 265 75 r16 on standard rims but with 40mm suspension lift and plastic gaurd liner trim.

there are hundreds of tyre combinations and most country dealers buy in to order.
unless they are standard toyota - nissan that locals tend to have.

regards peter

sshep
Depending on what year Rodeo, latest model have 111 load index not 107 which means you need 111 or greater. Only made at moment in Bridgestone, BFG I think Cooper is in process of bringing in that load index as well

FYI

Holden Rodeo dual cab (2004)

BFG AT 245/70/16, 45000km old

Driving on mine sites and highways.

Tonight at 110km/h the tread separated completely from the belting on the right hand drivers side (was previously on the rear). Almost like you see recaps when they come apart.

The other 3 look visually OK but all 4 are getting the flick tomorrow just in case.

Have been good tyre for the primary reason I chose them (cut resistance) but terrible in the wet on bitumen.
