    I'm running 265/65/R18 BFG KO2s. The Rok now drinks like a fish.

    17s are an option on the V6, so yes, it will fit. My dad fitted 17s he had on his 2.0, onto his V6.

    I've got the 4Motion 132kw Auto which I've had for a couple of years now (software is flashed so I'm putting out more kW than stock, but not sure of the figure - my furl consumption went down about 10% when I did the upgrade). I replaced tyres about 2 years ago with the 265/65r17 that were on the vehicle when I bought it (second hand). I see that the standard tyre for this seems to be the 245/65r17. Is that correct?

    I'm all over convincing myself that an extra 10mm radius on the tyre makes the hugest difference in vehicle capability - The electronics and tyre pressure and the niut between the steering wheel and the seat make much bigger differences. I do most of my driving on tar, but travel gravel roads every week. Fuel consumption and comfort are probably my biggest requirements these days.

    So I have the following questions :-
    1. Has anyone changed from 245/65r17 to 265/65r17 and can report a perceived difference in driveability and / or fuel consumption? Would I even notice if I went back to 245?
    2. Has anyone tried a 245/70r17? Virtually same height as the 265/65r17, just narrower.
    3. Finally, what is the consensus on the best value for money tyre when considering max milage, fuel consumption and purchase price (IOW lowest cost of ownership per km over the life of the tyre)


    Thanks in advance guys.

    I see looking online that there are the most options in 265/65r17 range.
