uneven tyres

hi everyone..last time i change my rear tyres from 255/60/18 to 255/70/18 and faults coming out from the dash board..its because the rear(255/70/18) are bigger than the front(255/60/18)?..its ok if all tyres from 255/60/18 to 255/70/18 ? Need advice..Thank you...fernando

hi
wrong thing to do
all tyres need to be the same diameter on a 4x4 especially one with so much electronics in it
the 255/60-18 has a diameter in service of 775mm whereas the 255/70R18 is 829mm so your rear tyres are over 2inch bigger, change them to the same all-round asap before you do some damage

all 4 the same would be better 255/60 or 255/65 or 255/70 but you are still 2 inches over standard diameter. it will effect your speedo by a bit but you may get better mpg Laughing
which ever size you choose make sure they are all the same size

The car thinks the front suspension is lower because the the back is 2 inches higher
Same size all round will (should) sort it

If they are all the same size it shouldn't effect the suspension BUT you are over size with 255/70-18 by over 2 inches this will slightly effect the mpg and to a small extent the acceleration of the car. Nothing to much to worry about Disco mpg is a laugh and slow down when u see a speed camera Laughing Laughing

Why do u want to change the standard tyres size? Looks? Cost? Something else

Rookie Mistake - would be safe on a 2 wheel drive car

If your Central transfer box dies soon - dont be surprised, by have larger diamter tires on the back the rear output is turning lesss than the front output - but the box is expecting equal output.

Start saving....also if you are AUTO there is a good chance the back lash will kill your auto box, when your transfer box fails.

If you are lucky - Reverse will still work
