Hi, recently bought a 2009 GV 1.9 ddis. Does anyone know if I can run 245/70/17 AT tyres without any mods?
Thanks

Can't see a problem, but there wasn't a huge amount of room left in the arches on the last one i looked at, but saying that the nominal diameter difference between the 2 is only around 20mm or so, if you go for something new and not remould.

Thanks. It currently has 225/65/17, so about 2inch bigger. Cheers

Not much room when standard, and not much articulation as standard,
not good gearing when you go too big on the tyres unless you are just using offroad.

Use 235/65R17's on the ones i look after just because there is something available AT when we need them.
