I have a Tf 4x4 Rodeo 3 litre diesel which I bought with 30 X 9.5 X 15 tyres. Using the Explore Oz tyre calculator I believe these to be 765mm diameter against the original 205r16 tyres of 733mm diameter. It performs well other than on hills and a dyno tune confirms all is well with the motor. I am led to believe the 30mm in height variation will not make a significant difference in performance but as I have exhausted all possible issues I would like to try a set of standard 205r16 tyres on it to prove conclusively the tyres are not the problem. I have 2 factory tyres and rims with 205r16 tyres here from the old 1994 diesel Rodeo and was hoping I could borrow another 2 from someone here in Perth for a test run or even if someone has a set of wheel nuts laying around for sale to suit the original rims would be a help.
So if you can help with the tyres and rims then I reckon you have earned a carton.....

Good way to go, this will prove if it is the tyres or not. As you say the motor is within spec so no troubles there.

My thoughts are the tyres and 30mm is quite a lot in height, remember every time it goes round it has covered another 90+ mm.

Have a good one

I have had varied opinions on the tyre height, mainly tyre places who say the bigger diameter tyres are fitted commonly without issues with the 30 x 9.5 x 15 being often fitted to the R9 Rodeo. If the problem can be resolved I am only happy to buy new tyres and rims but would like to know first before going to the expense of buying and then having to try and sell the ones fitted to it which are BFG A/t. The original rims have a specialised nut for that rim and are expensive espeically as I just want to try them out. I know you wont believe $35 each per nut from holden Otherwise 235X75x15 have the closest diameter to the original but of course the original spec leaves no doubt.
