Default Freelander 1 td4 tyres

Hi,

I am looking at putting a new set of tyres on my 2002 td4, would anyone be able to tell me if the kumho kl78 215/80/15 would fit?

Thanks in advance

andy

My 2003 Td4 has 215/65x16 fitted as standard.

The closest 15" tyre to this is the 215/70x15 which has a 0.56% (smaller) difference in overall diameter to mine.
Next is the 195/80x15 which has a 1.03% (larger) difference.
A 215/75x16 comes in at 2.5% (larger)

The 215/80x15 you propose has a 5.4% (larger) difference which is starting to get a little more overgeared & means your speedo will underread as well.

Would give you a false reading on your spedo, going faster than what spedo reads. so possible to get a speeding ticket going.example spedo reads 70mph and you are doing77mph

Just measure the diameter of the tire and if they are with in a inch should work. But what you should do is go to your lr look at the front tyres and see what clearance you have in the wheel arch at the front and back of the tyre them turn full lock left and right to get idea hoe much clearance you have. You have to make your own decision of what will work or not

Wasn't him that mentioned the 16" wheels, it was me. That's what most standard Td4's (like mine) came with & I was using mine as a reference comparison for the overall diameter to give him an idea of how his proposed tyre change would compare to standard.
