    Bryan, ek het op die vorige forum - dink ek - gesien, het iemand 'n site geplaas wat tyre manufacturer ratings gee...bv 4 sterre vir nat pad, 3 sterre vir grond en dan 'n over all 4 ster rating....het nou al gesoek vir die site maar loop dit nie raak nie. Weet iemand dalk waarvan ek praat?

    Hi, I found this Size caluculator which was quite informative for me http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html it also has some graphical presentation of the tyres before and after changes, as well as speed changes etc.

    Found this very useful tyre size calculator, not only does it give a graphical representation of the tyre sizes, it also indicates the offset or backspacing of a wheel.

    I like things simple, thought this one fits my requirements:

    Tyre Know How
    Have you ever wondered what all the letter on the tyre side wall means ?
    The follow Letters and numbers may appear on the side wall.

    245/75 R16 108 Q
    245 : The width of the Tyre in mm.
    75 : Height of the sidewall represented as a percentage of the width of the tyre.
    R : Type of tyre, cross-ply or radial.
    16 : Inside or rim diameter in inches.
    108 : Maximum Load.
    Q : Maximum speed rating.
    The American rating looks a bit different and this is what it looks like and what it all means.
    30x10 R 16
    30 :Outside diameter in inches.
    10 :Width of the tyre in inches.
    R :Type, Radial or Cross ply
    16 :Inside or rim diameter in inches.
    <td width=85>Maximum Load

    Load Kg<td width=120>Speed Rating

    Rating Km/h

    This is a spreadsheet I made to work out tire sizes. I've include some things that I found usefull such as how tire size affects gearing etc. You can also play with diff ratios etc.

    Hi Guys
    I am calling on your experiences in helping me with a problem.
    I have a 2001 Hilux KZTE 4x4. I have just fit BF Goodrich, 31x10.5x15's on 10J rims. The rear are fine, however, the front tyres touch on the wheel arches when doing a full turn.
    I have had many suggestions, replace rims, replace tyres, do a lift of the body, etc.
    Has anybody had this problem and which is the quickest and cheapest way of resolving this problem without compromising the vehicles stability, etc.
    Awaiting your responses

    Question Tyres Size For Ford Ranger 2008

    Hi All

    I have a Ford Ranger 2008 3.0lt tdci, and would like to replace my tyres with BF's... But my current size is 245/70/16. I would like to know if I could fit the 265/75/16... Or if someone had them fitted on the ford before?

    I know that you can get the oversize tyre for the 15" but not for 16", unless the 265/75 is the oversize?

    I am offcourse worried that it would rub against the mud flaps, or side skirts....

    If you have any advice please help me!!

    regards

    Default Tyres Size For Isuzu KB300

    Rikus

    I have a 2006 Isuzu KB 300. The Standard tyre size on the Isuzu is 245/70/16 (same as the Ford Ranger), I fitted 265/75/16's on the Isuzu and it worked like a charm. The speedo is now 100% correct as well.

    Hallo Vleismes

    Baie dankie vir die raad. Ek hoop dit sal pas... Ek weet nie of die "wheel Arch" van die ford en die Isuzu verskil nie.

    Ek sal maar dit toets en kyk of hulle pas sodra ek bande gaan opsit.
    Anders sal ek die 245/75/16 opsit, wat so bietjie duurder is, as die 70 maar wel bietjie gaan lig.

    groete

    Rikus

    Hi KZTE

    I had a similar problem on my 2.7 when i first fitted 31x10s. It all depends on the offset of the rims. This will determine the amount of mods that you will have to do. I have the 31x10 on a set of 8J rims with a -20 offset. They toughed agains the plastic part of the running board. All that i did was to cut the pastic part away to make more room for the larger tyre. When I lifted the vehicle I fitted rock sliders. This meant that I had to fit mud flaps in the front. The wheels touched again as the mudflap actaully leaves allot less room for the tyre to turn. All that I did in this case was to cut off the inside of the mudflap to make more room. If your KZTE is fitted with mudflaps you will see that the top part of the mudflap is actually a double part. The last option is to play with the caster of the vehicle. You can ask a willing wheel alignment center to move the wheels forward a bit. Just be carefull so that thay don't move them forward too much, as this will affect the handling of the vehicle. The very last option would be a hammer. We fitted a set of 31x10s on 10J rims on buddy's KZTE. The were a 0 offset. We got away with cutting the running board and playing with the caster. They still lightly touched on a full lock turn, but this was actually on the frame rails of the chassis. Nothing you can do about that.

    Another thing you can do is ask the wheel alignment technician to adjust the ride height of the Hilux.This is done by adjusting the torsion bar under the chassis frame rails.Keep in mind though that this 'lift' affects the level of the lights as well as the relation to the rear of the pickup and if running with a load you need to take this into account.Wheel alignment is then reset
