I have a 96 2.8TD Rodeo and have a qn about wheel size. At the moment I am running the factory 16 inch rims on it, however, I also have a set of 15 inch that fit as well. I was wondering if anybody out there could advise me either for or against the different sizes? Is there a difference in fuel economy between the two or performance?

Any feedback appreciated

it's not the rim size but the tire diameter. I went from the std tire size to a 31"x10.5x15 . Not noticable hange in fuel ecconomy etc. Got a bit more ground clearance and they look better!

have done the same, looks mean, more lift and no noticeable difference in economy.

The only thing that they did do was change the speedo by about 5%. Just means that when your doing 100km you are actually doing 105ish.
Worth doing, cheap way toget a lift. My previous 97 rodeo had the tyres scrap a sminge when on full lock and going over a bump. Otherwise a treat.
