Many tyres available in this area for 16". When I had my Patrol, I went from 275/65R17 to 265/70R17.
(Check VicRoads website for precise wording on modifications)
These were just legal (14mm larger) and put my speedo out by about 10%.
Last year, the special ops group staged a road block near Mansfield (Vic) and put a number of 4wds off the road for illegal mods. They did the same out from marysville in 2008.
Becareful out there.

I just went down to a local tyre place (Penrith NSW) and he told me rules have changed in June 2009. It is now ok for up to 50mm increase for 4wds but still 15mm for passenger vehicles. He even showed me in his regulation book.
I asked him about the NSW RTA VSI09 and he said that is old and RTA haven't updated their website yet.
This would mean in NSW 265/70/16s are now ok but 265/75/16 are just a couple of mm over.

Did you have any luck with this?
I checked with local tyre company's in my area but very vague.
They all tell me 15mm maximum.
The RTA website still says 15mm also.
