Need tire size for 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

I have a 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. I currently have the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tire size is 245/75R16. My question is: Can I go to a 265/75R16 without any problems and will it affect the performance. I live in the Andes Mountains and drive mostly on rough mountain roads. How can I verify that the wheels will support this size tire? The only number on the wheel which is a Toyota Wheel is 16-6.
Thank you for your help.

    I did not think the answer was exactly what I was asking. Maybe my question is not clear. Ok, What I need to know first is if the 265 tire will fit on my current rims ot if I have to change rims in order to accomadate the larger tires? I am currently running with a 6 inch rim I believe. I am not really sure how to identify the rim size other than the number of the current tire and the number on the rim is 16/6.

    Also, as you stated in your response I want to know what kinds of dangers if any would occur. Would you have access to the 1995 Toyota Prado Landcruiser, Diesel manual? It may indicate the proper tire size for the vehicle. Or recommended sizes.

    you can change the size tires but keep in mind , if you go to a bigger size tire ,your speedometer will read slower than you are really going .the smaller the opposite. it is about 7-10 mah differences . also dont mix sizes , if you put 2 different size tires on the rear you could burn up the rear end or transmission , because one tire will rotate faster than the other

Big tires:

1. Hard time for your drive train (clutch, cv joint, tranny, diff gears) , power steering, brakes
2. Slow acceleration
3. possible fender damage
4. turning radius problem
5. increase body roll and instability
1. good ground clearance
2. softer ride
3. Enhanced off-road ability

tires your planning to buy can fit into your existing rims.
My personal opinion is for you to go for the bigger tires!

Im buying a 2001 prado gxl with 265 tyres on it (road tyres) and i have a set of 285 cooper sts these tyers will fit on the rims no probs but will they foul on the gard or scrape anywhere when im off road...

prado is a kind of land cruiser.

The original tire equipment size is 275/70-16 for those vehicles.
If you are currently using 265/70-16 and plans to upgrade to 285... Make sure you verify if your Cooper tires size reflects 285/65-16.
Because, this is the only way you can keep your current settings unchanged with respect to the wheel/tire well size.

Effects (according to Tire Size Calculator):
*So, the sidewall remains 7.3 in, the radius (15.3 in) will stay the same, the diameter (30.6 in) will not change, and the number of tire revolutions/mile ( approximately 659.0 revs/mile) remains the same.
Expect, however, the circumference to change only changes from 96.2 in to 96.1in (not a big deal).

1997 Toyota land cruiser prado Rz compass bearing, temperature setting, etc.

I've been resetting pajero's compasses but try to get to an area where you can do 360 degrees turns (empty car parks, ) press the reset button and make 2 complete 360 turns slowly and normally this should set the compass bearing.
Let us know how you get on. Cheers.
