Wheels and Tyres.

Post by bowie » Mon Sep 10, 2018 7:13 pm

Help needed. I want to fit alloys to our split, 5~205 wheels. Have chosen ssp 5 spokes 5.5-15.
Or jbw foosh front 4.5-15, Rear 5.5-15. What size tyres do you think would look best on each set.
Thanks for the help Al.

Are you stock height or lowered? Will make a big difference on tyre choice.

Try one of the many online tyre size calculators https://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyre-size-calculator/ if your van is lowered then clearance can become an issue. Also remember going away from stock will throw the speedo out, but most of the calculators will give you an idea of what percentage the reading will change.

Did you have 14" wheels on yours? Just because I'm swaping back.
