Hello all, I've read hundreds of posts but can't find an answer for the hard cover. I'm sure I'm just not familiar with the correct search terms yet.

Our 94 G320 463 should arrive any time now and needs tires asap. My wife loves the spare tire carrier and I've already won the battle to at least get a pre-mbusa truck so it's staying for now.

Can the 463 hard cover fit 265/76/16 (will go on Atiks). Looking at Geolander XATs.

Thank you in advance.

2002 G500 the stock tires are P265/60R18

A neighbor is selling these, they were stock on his truck but he took them off with 2500 miles. They are LT 275/65R18

Is it ok to install these on my G500? Seems like a reasonable choice if I want just slightly larger, but will there be any drawback?

Thanks for any responses.

Check the year of the tires. If they are old and the original tires you may want to pass.

Good luck.

You ever find an answer to this question? I'd like to know as well.
