I'm looking for a close-to-drop-in replacement for the wheels on my 2002 Hilux 4x4 (turbo, KZN165). Currently fitted with 205R16 tires on 16x5.5F SDC rims (~ +30mm offset, PDC 6x139.7). Overall diameter of tyre ~ 709 mm or 29 inches.
I'd like to replace them with standard steel rims.
Almost all the driving I do these days is on road.
The claim is that this will make tyre replacement cheaper and give me a wider range of models to choose from...
I'm having trouble getting my head around what would be a suitable rim and tyre replacement size that...
1) keeps a similar offset (+30)
2) keeps a similar overall size so I don' have to futz with the Speedo (29 inch or 709mm)
and 3) isn't so wide it requires flares (or interferes on the inside clearance) (currently 8 inches/205 mm)
I'm happy to move to a different sized rim (presumably 17 inch)
Can anyone advise on if I'm making a mistake and or if its a good idea, what combo of tires and rims would be sensible (in terms of availability and presumably cost)
