    There's probably a website somewhere that points to NSW adopting the NCOP or some variation of it. If there is, please post here so that the info can be updated.

    Unless I'm missing something:

    265/65 x 17 overall diameter = 776mm approx.

    265/70 x 17 overall diameter = 804mm approx.

    Difference = 28mm = 3.6% - which is under the 7% legal maximum quoted above, and therefore OK in NSW.

    That sounds like a 265 70 tyre is now legal in NSW?

    Quote from the Minister

    "I’m delighted to announce I’ve approved for gazettal two new light vehicle standards. The first is titled the Light Vehicle Modifications Manual – Suspension an...d Ride Height (also known as the ‘Suspension Manual’), while the second is called the Vehicle Standards Information 60: Carrying Motorised Mobility Devices and Motor Cycles on Vehicles.
    These standards were developed by the NSW Vehicle Standards Working Group, a committee I established in 2012 to allow motor enthusiasts direct input in formulating vehicle-related policies and regulations in NSW."

    I think that means as of Now.
