As stated above, for a 4wd, tyres are allowed 50mm larger diameter and 1.5x the original width.

And these calculations are based upon the largest wheel/tyre the manufacturer fits too. Which is not necessarily the one fitted to your 4wd from the showroom!

Check on your door(driver side) there should be a tyre placard...it will state the nominal tyre size for that vehicle...that size is the size you go off for your 50mm max diameter increase

Will Ranger 16" rims & 265/75/16 AT's fit my 03 Courier?

Unread post by sinkerz » July 20th, 2014, 5:03 pm

hey guys i have bought a 2003 TD ford courier 4x4 and I'm thinking of getting some 16" ranger steel rims with 265/75/16 all terrain tyres fitted to it just wondering if they will fit without a lift kit and have minimal scrubbing? i was told 15" might not fit due to the big drum brakes on the rear. cheers ryan

I had a 98 model and fitted 30x9.5 R15's onto it. They fitted over the front calipers and rear drums no worries at all. For the rubber, there was heaps of room and never scrubbed so 265's should work. I don't think too much in the final drive line changed between the two models.

I don't know if the 16" rims off the current model would work though. I think the off set is different as i have a tyre carrier on the camper that I built. It fitted a standard courier rim and tyre no issues at all, it would clamp down onto the carrier and sit flush against the back wall of the camper.
I tried to mount a current model Ranger/BT50 steel rim onto it and I couldn't even get the studs to show through the holes. That would be around 3" difference between the 2 rims.

Check the diameter of the centre hole on the rims I think the rangers may have a smaller hole that goes around the hub, it might be the same if yours doesn't have manual locking hubs. 15's should fit thats what I have on my courier and Im pretty sure some of the rangers an BT50s even had 15 inch steel rims as standard.

What's the factory rim/ tyre size for a Pe 4x4?

Found a few different sizes listed on the net.

It should be on the tyre placard on the drivers door/door jam.

16x7 for the rim, not sure on the offset.
