Dear All,

Last week I bought the new Dmax Vcross. It has 16 x 7j wheels with 245/70R16 Tires. I would like to know if it will be possible to mount a 275/70R16 or 265/70R16 on the stock 16x7j rims. I have seen people doing so but I would like to confirm if it is technically correct to do so or not.

My intention is to have the biggest possible tire on the stock vehicle without interference with wheel arch as currently I am not planning to install lift kit to the vehicle.

Your valuable advices would be very helpful.
Regards

265/75R16's tyres are a common replacement onto the stock rims, so you should have no issues with the 265/70R16. I'm unsure if the extra width of the 275 will be an issue..

I'm about to purchase a 2018 MU-X and have the same question on 275/70R16 on the 16x7 factory alloys an scrubbing/guard clearance.
Reason for the odd sizing is they are near new and I want to transfer from existing vehicle.

Long term I'd be looking at 245/75 or 265/70 on the 16's.
Don't want 265/75 as I tow a 2.5T van with the car loaded to GVM.

If you cut a cardboard profile of a 245 16 std tyre tread and outside that cut the profile of the size tyre you wish to investigate, ie both width and tread from centre of wheel, you can carefully place the profile on any part of the tyre when on lock, at front and rear of the base size tyre and see for yoruself where closeness or contact may ocur and also clearance of "any" proposed tyre size.

The profiles can even be cut offset to allow for wider rim and/or offset of wheel centre, if changing rims, and checked in a similar manner.

One thing you do need to know for sure is, replacing an 18" rim with a 16" rim, is there sufficient brake caliper clearance.
