Tyre Size power difference

Post by gapavan »

Hi Guys,
PX2 Ranger Auto, Currently have 265/70/17 Tyres
Need new tyres soon and thinking to go 285/70/17.
they are 22mm taller.
Has anyone experienced much of a loss in power and torque with this upgrade.
I know its not much difference, but just wondering for towing a van.

Cheers

I went with 285/65/17 FOR that reason. My original tyres were 265/65
and not 70 profile.
