Hi All
Can somone please tell me the difference in a BFG AT 265x70x16 and a 265x75x16?
And will a 265x75x16 fit under a standard 2001 td prado and not hit any wear?
Are they a good wearing tyre? i have 265x70x16 grandtreks h/t on and want to go a/t nothing wrong with the grandtreks if anyone no someone wanting a good cheap set of tyres around 85% tread left
Thanks Jon

2/10ths of F-all
Overall diameter
LT265/75R16/ 283

LT265/70R16/ 792

Higher load index
Same speed rating
Max rim size on the 75's is a 8, 70's are 8.5

Excuse the butter fingers

LT265/75R16/ 283
“283” Should read 820mm Vs 792mm for the 70 series for the overall diameter

I have just fitted 265x75x16 BFG A/T's on my Patrol in place of the original Bridgestone 265x70x16 tyres. These tyres are almost exactly 1/2" (13mm) bigger in the radius than the originals. That means 13mm more ground clearance and about 5% increase in the rolling circumference. Net result is that the speedo now reads almost exactly correct where before it was 6% fast. At a calculated 100 Km/hr it now reads 101 where before it read 106.
You may find that the steering is fractionally less precise due to the higher profile.
Can't comment on guard clearance issues with the Prado - no probs with the Patrol.

Hi Johnboy,

When our tyres were up for replacement on the patrol, we went with the BF Goodrich AT 265x75x16.

We found the following

- tyres were cheaper - apparently 75 series is a more popular tyre, hence sell more and so they can discount them better

- Car is 1/2 inch taller

- Far better ride than original tyres

I would recommend going this way

Thanks

TonyG
