    Default Prado 150 Tx tyre size

    Not sure if this has come up before but I'm wanting to change my 265/65/17's on my 150 tx to 265/70/17's. I have the stock standard suspension at the moment with the view to put in an ome system at some stage!
    Should I expect tyre rubbing or any other concerns with the size change?

    Your sparewheel cover might be a tight fit or not at all. No biggie, took mine off ages ago.

    Why change tyre size?

    Thanks for your reply. Not too phased about the spare wheel cover problem.
    Reason for the change is that I've been offered a new set of Cooper at3's for a really great price. Just don't want to accept them before I know that they'll fit!

    The difference is 1inch. The 265/65/17 is 30inch and the 265/70/17 is 31inch. Sure it wont have an effect like rubbing etc. on normal roads.

    Hi

    Sorry to reply on this very old thread but I don't want to start a new one if this one already exists.

    I have the same vehicle and would like to know if you experienced any issues fitting the 70 profile tyres on your Prado TX? I would like to do the same with mine.

    Thanks

    I got the 70 profiles on my TX V6 for a while now,it's lifted tho, happy with them, but I'd go for 65's again there was a good deal on them, it wasn't a wow must have addition.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The reason Iím asking is because there are a lot
    more options for 265/70 profile tyres in Mud Terrains than the standard 265/65 size.

    My TX is not lifted, do you think I will have any issues in regards to rubbing or anything? Just want to be sure before I order them.

    thanks

    Had 70 profiles on my 120 before it's lift and they rubbed on full lock, can't say from personal experience about the 150 as I only fitted 70's after the lift.
    Ill be interested to know what your consumption goes to with bigger tyres and them being muds as well, without getting into the old debate, mine was noticeably less powerful. I don't look too closely at consumption as I have the V6
