    If upgrading to 15 inch from standard what size do i go without modification? i do not want to lower the van, i also do not want to use car specification tyres on the van so to maintain the correct rolling radius what should i fit? Thanks Rick.

    you want the 5.5" rims in my opinion, see loads off 4.5" rims on ebay where they bought them not realising

    'scuse the ignorance but why?
     
  8. I'd have thought 5.5 x 15" for those...most peeps go for 185/65/15 tyres

  13. I'm sure that the ones you are buying are 5.5" wide (VWH, JBW dont list a 4.5" rim width)...but as Woody says, best check first!

    oooh differences already..... the 185 - 195 is by the by that's the width and i know mine are 185/?/14 at the moment...... so it's just the height i need to get sorted i thought i had a tyre measurement site on my bookmarks but obviously not.
