Sounds good I guess. I bought 2 more last week for $290- each which included FITTING and rotation every 5,000klm for the life of the tyres (from Goodyear, Kadina, SA).

So, as long as the fitting is included and they offer after sales service, should be a good price.

Cheers

My 285/75-16's were $300 a corner fitted & balanced with free rotation every 10,000k's and have since found that's not the best price you can get. Your quote of $275 ins't a bad price for 265's but I would've thought being a more common standard tire size, you'd be able to do better with some hunting around? Could be wrong.

Yep bigger diameter. The 265 is about a 31.5" and the 285 is aa tad under 33". The bigger tires seem to give more bite up rough/rutted hills and feel a bit more sure footed - whether that's thru increased footprint size or what I don't know.

Obviously the increased diameter affects gearing but in the 80 it's not really noticable - I thought I noticed it a bit when i first got them but that could've been more in my mind. The only other thing to watch is how it affects the speedo. The speedo now reads 3.7% slower than it did before (is that right?) Anyway I sit on about 96 (on the speedo) now instead of 100km/h and the trucks actually doing 100k's.

Did I answer your question? :-S

Scoey, I agree, I have 285 Coopers on my 92 mod 80 & it is more sure footed than before..
I am sitting on 100k's when my speedo says 93

Beware you must keep the load rating the same or higher than required or your vehicle could be defected or insurance voided in case of accident, I found on my RA Rodeo that only the original Bridgestone rubbish or same size BF Goodrich tyres could be fitted.
Also with tyre sizing if you exceed 12% increase in diameter you then need to have your speedo adjusted.

I paid $259 fitted last April. When I phoned around other dealers to try and match the price not one would belive my written quote, cliaming it was below their cost. I bought mine from Beaurepaires at Warradale and they have been rotated and balanced free every 5000kms. They'll get my business next time because they have given such good service.
