Hi,


Checked with many shops in Sharjah. and most places is not available. I am told that Cooper AT3 is not available 265/65R17 and is only available only in 265/70R17 but as my car is not lifted this cannot be used.Not aware if above is true if I can use 70. I am checking online as well.

Please advised ?

You can fix 265/ 70 on stock height Fortuner , front tyres may rub but only in extreme conditions .

Some members were having good time with Cooper AT3, Geolanders or BFGoodrich KO2 if you want something that has stronger sidewalls.
