I'm looking to change the tyres on my BT50 from the original 255/65r17 highway pattern to larger diametre ATs on the factory rims. The local tyre shop recommends 265/70r17. Anybody done this? Are you happy with the results? Any downsides?

Mine will go to 255/75 17’s when the time comes. Similar final size, less weight. I’ve pretty much decided I don’t want LT rated tyres anymore and that size works for P metrics.

From memory there are one or two LT rated tyres in the size CAM is thinking about running. It would be close to the largest tyre you could fit.

How to you figure that out being a bigger tyre? AT's will generally always be heavier that highway tyres & even bigger tryes more so?
Sorry, I didn’t make sense - Less weight than the 265/70/17 he is considering, esp if they are LT also.
