Update, sourced a set locally, thanks for the help.

I am looking for preferably five or four tyres in the 275/70 R 16 size. Must be as new condition if possible.
Thanks

Is this a Patrol size? I was under the impression that the size for Patrol is 265/75/16?

I remember running 265/70/16 on my HB.
Groete/Regards,

Hi George

Yes 275/70R16 is stock size for the GRX but in SA they only sell it with the optional 17 inch alloy rims.
I actually have 265/75/16 bf Goodrich ko2 on my patrol already and I am looking to go smaller to stock 275/70/16 but they are a very scare size.

Out of curiosity - why do you want to do that?

The 275/70/16 (265/75/16 is 1.6% larger than stock)is the same size as the normal Grx 275/65-17 size and I found my Patrol drove the best on this size for Allround use. The 16 inch grx rims I am now using where my off-road set and because I only maybe do max 10% off-road driving I would prefer a more road based all terrain tyre in 275/70/16. The Bridgestone dueler looks nice in that size but there are not much on offer

I think 31 is the stock tyre size in either the 16 or 17 rim :mytwocents:
