In fitting non standard tyres or alloys to any car, you are advised to stay within 2% - 2.5% of the circumference of the standard tyre/alloy combo fitted.

In fitting 265/70 R17 BFG A/T's or similar, you are fitting a "way over" size - at over 5% difference.

255/65 R17 763 mm 2397 mm = 0 %
265/70 R17 803 mm 2523 mm = +5.17 %

Surely, a 275/60R17 is the right fit
This is the preferred conversion size that tyre fitter services go for on the BFG's
My Pathfinder has just had them fitted, really impressed.
So as far as your research goes.... add that to it :homo

Has anyone noticed that BFG do a 265/65/17? According to willtheyfit.com is -1.67% so should be well within the limits? Going to order a full set up soon!

Re: Tyre Size( Once and for all please)

Not sure if this is any help to anybody but I'm running a stock height d40 on 265/65/17 general grabber at2's (the the bfg all terrain style) with no issues at all it's a little worse on mpg but nothing bad! I found the old style grabbers on giga-tyres.co.uk for around the 450 mark delivered nearly 300 less than the bfg's were going to be, thought I'd share if anybody else was looking ?
