Morning All,

Long time stalker. First time poster (I think)

So time has arrived to replace the OEM fitted Duelers on which I (only) got about 40 000kms. I have been speaking to a couple of guys regarding going from the standard 265/65 R17s to 265/70 R17s and some of them mentioned the all too famous "A friend of mine" did this and he reported so much power loss that he had to do this, that and the next thing. Keeping in mind that it is a Autobox I do understand that gearing as well as Speedo will be affected but does anyone have first hand experience on powerloss?

Many thanks

Cheers

Not much issues on the manual gearbox. Still pulls like a train

Got 265/75/R16 on my 09 d4d auto. Speedo is spot on and still pulls well.
