    Default Help regarding Choosing tyres

    Dear Pak Wheelrs, Especially 4x4 enthusiasts I need to replace tyres of of my 1988 model Toyota Land Cruiser 3 door with 2-LT engine. Currently the tyres are 310 * 105 Radius 15 dunlop SP RV Major. I personaly plan to purchase original recommended size 215 (or 235 for better look.) The one reason to change tyres/size is that vehicle is fuel consumption which is 7 km /litter urban and 8Km Highway which is very low as diesel engines are good at mileage. .u ppl know better than me the tyres are very large for this vehicle pls help to choose tyres and also guide about the price. Guidence will be highly appreciated.

    Pls check the sticker on the door that has OEM size specifications, if not google. I think you will be ok as long as you stay under or at 245/70/15 specially if you have hollow rims.

    @aroonmalik
    215 is the width, what about profile?
    Get whatever size, but stay within +/- 3% of the original diameter.
    What good is a Genius without the Human aspect?
