265's are legal on any diameter rim, as long as its within 1.3 times wider than the widest optional tyre for that model.

But then other rules come into play which basically means you have to be very careful with the wheel offset for it to work.

The tyre must be in accordance with the "rim to tyre fitment standards" blah blah etc...... which means you need a certain width rim to use the 265 width tyre, and at the same time you cant increase the wheel track by more than 25mm, so the offset and backspacing of the wheel is very important to keep the combo legal

Wow i just checked the home page and relised this was one of the hot topics? its super old!

Didn't get the final say either :lol:

It may look dodgy to you, but id like to see 12" drag slicks under the gaurds without pumping or tubbing on stock offset? :lol: can't be done.

I think you may find that they are indeed illegal as they protrude from the body quite far as the guards/mud guards/splash guards(all required by law except mud flaps) etc wont protect bystanders and other road users from debris being picked up and dangerously shot off...

seconded to big kev's words, they cannot protrude the vehicle chassis (with the exception being at the bottom, where the tyres meet the ground)
