Better Tyres For The Winter

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I need to change my tyres and have been advise to fit BF Goodrich All Terrain which apparently do an excellent job on and off road through the winter.

At present I have 245/70x16's fitted and want to fit tyres with a larger footprint to enhance the look of my skinny original tyres.

I know it will affect the speedo slightly, but I need to know that they will fit and not rub if I fit 265/70x6 BF Goodrich All terrains.

Has anyone fitted larger footprint tyres successfully, and if so what size where they?

Kind regards,

Nick.

hi nick. i just fitted a set of 265/75R16 BFGOODRICH MUD TERRAINs to my 2007 ranger wildtrak. basically they are too big, had to trim the front mud guards (nearly took half off) and trim the front of the wheel arch moulding by about 25mm. but the all terrains might just fit as they dont have such aggressive tread.

general grabbers also make good all round tyres too.

hope this helps

george
