I have a 2005 2.2 DCI Sport with 17" wheels. Can any tell me what the maximum width of tyre can be fitted to this vehicle so I can purchse a more aggressive all terrain tyre. The current tyres are 215/60 17 with a very limited off road capability.

Thanks!

having fitted 225\75R16's they will rub on bumps and reduce turning circle greatly... lift and spacers would cost around £350...

I dropped to 215\70R16's (General Grabber AT's still) for £331 and will sell the above to a Disco owner...

at least someone has actually tried it so you don't have too..... LOL.

I have 225/70/16. An increase of 1 size width plus 1 size in height from the standard 215/65/16.
A little rubbing of the inside plastic splashguard on full lock but easily fixed by drilling another fixing hole to move the splashguard towards the engine slightly.

Is it OK to use wheel spacers? I've got 215's and would like 225's keeping same profile size - would it work if I used 25mm spacers or do these alter the handling, etc?

try 225/55/17 same size as a mk1 freelander go up 1 size 225 then go down on other size 55 that way the wheel size stays the same ..... :thumbs:

Hi vandy,

Is your T30 standard tyre size 215/65/16 like ours ?
You can go from a 215 to 225 keeping the same profile and rim without any problems, infact it will make your speedo more accurate (offsetting the 8% overspeed reading which seems standard calibration for our Xtrails).

Hi Kev
My existing tyres are 215 60 17. Wanted to increase the width to 225 but also want to keep the 60 profile really - not too keen to reduce the height.

no height of tyre will not look lower cos, the profile will be larger 225........ 225/55/17 would give you the same size wheel speedo would not differ will have a bigger tyre /wider to look at and no spacer needed... happy days :biggrin:
