265/60-18

I recently put on Bridgeston Deuller Revos sized at 265/60-18s which are all terran tires.

I went from a 29 inch tire to a 30.5, I didnt want to push my luck with a 65 profile. These fill out the wheel well in sport mode with no rubbing to include turning.

The speedometer is now dead on and the odometer seems to be not affected as I verified both with my Tom Tom.

I have not went off road but they are surely an upgrade over my all season Toyos. The tires are definitely heavier and stickier and there is a little bit of a tire drone. Also makes the steering seem heavier. My city mileage went down a one MPG Have not been on open road long enough to see what affect it has on steady speeds.

I've experienced the same as you with speedo reading on the same size tyres. I agree that a 65 profile is pushing it, where a 60 is safe fit with full lock.

tire size 22

Had factory 19's, but went into shock when I found out the price of new Michellins after only 14k.

I am on my second set of 22" Replaced my Kohans with Victor Racing. 285/35R22 v106's First set of Yokos went 46k until they were racing slicks. New set is same size, but are Nexen. Tires are junk but came with rims with 5k on them and they were practically for free, so I'm not complaining.

I'm selling the Kohans. See Pix in my profile. You will need to swap out the TPMS from your old rims.

Great for highway and handling, sucks for off road...
well work fine, but get super dirty and lots of sand mud packs around the rim. Rims hold like a pound of dirt in the holes and crannys.

I'm shopping out 315/35/20 for the rear, going to stick with 275/40/20 for the fronts. Diameter of both sizes is identical.

WOW 315s will require at least an 11 inch rim to avoid wearing the centers out. Your 275s are probably on a 9+ inch. 285s fit a 10 inch almost perfect.
