16 and 17 are better priced tyres and easier to get in some places in Australia
Many say 265/75/16 and 265/70/17 fit others say they scrub They are common sized tyres so easy to get

Most certainly get a matching spare. The size difference is about 27mm in diameter, so would possibly cause drivetrain issues.

Mitsubishi are having some issues with their superselect transfer boxes jamming up, with incompatible tyre sizes being one of the concerns

I would imagine the viscous coupling in the centre diff wouldn't be happy on long runs with mismatched wheel diameters, on super select, when in AWD mode.

Dibby, are you talking about situations where the spare, being a different, smaller size is used and resulting in wind up, or are you talking about situations where all the tyres are much larger, say 33", resulting in loads beyond design limits being put on the transfer case?

Both really. I recently had a MQ with superselect that snapped a front driveshaft. We suspected the train was wound up, or had been wound up, but unable to recreate. New shaft was fitted, but still had an issue with not engaging 4wd. Found selector mech had seized internally. Stripped apart transfer case, and found damage on centre diff drive teeth. I was unable to determine what had caused damage so had to fight to get new transfer case under warranty, even though vehicle was only 2 years old. No external factors had changed i.e. drivetrain and tyre/wheels were all standard.

But i was told they are investigating issues of selection problems with vehicles that have different brands on front and rear, with one axle having new tyres and other having worn pair.

Both cases of wind up, really.

The second one has been around for a long time. With tyres having treads that are around 14mm deep, the difference in diameter between worn and new can be up to 25mm. That's nearly 80mm difference in circumference meaning that you have one end wanting to travel up to 80mm further than the other end with every rotation of the wheel. Pretty significant and why I always thought that you should only ever change tyres on any 4WD in sets of 4 or 5.

What I was asking about was more a case of damage or wear due to big tyres and no compensating change in diff ratios. I'm not a fan of big tyres, even if I think they look great, simply because every time I've had bigger tyres the vehicle just hasn't felt "happy". That extra load has to manifest itself somewhere.....
