Looking to fit some all terrain tyres to Davenports. Have seen threads on here using BFG 225/65/17. General Grabber AT3 and Yokohama GO15 are also available in this size but only seem to have 102H rating. I’ve had both of these tyres before (on Land Cruiser and Subaru Forester) and both are excellent. Will I come unstuck on the load rating?

According to Google a 102 tyre will take 850 kg's so should be ok. That's a total weight of 3400kg on all four and a Cali will never weight that. Its more than a T32 Transporter can take.

Thanks. I’ve no doubt the tyres would be more than capable it’s just that the door plate says 103 (although for 215 tyres it says 102), unless they are building in a huge safety margin. I’m more concerned about what the insurers would say in the event of an accident.
