Default What wheels for LT46

Looking at various LTs and to keep my options open I'm considering the LT46 with the 6 stud wheels. Are there any wheels I could fit on there to replace the offset wheel on the front and the double wheel on the rear?

I guess all I need to know is the PCD, bore, offset etc as standard, can't find it anywhere though!

I don't think a single wheel type would be suitable from the load rating aspect. If you don't want the twin rears why bother with the 46 when the 35 will do?

Electrics for camper vans and work vehicles.

I've seen some minibuses and crew buses with interesting door arrangements, and with wheelchair lifts too. I'll want some way of getting a motorbike in the back, under a fixed bed, so a wheelchair lift could be an option. With the doors, I've seen some with a small door instead of the sliding door, which opens up possibilities for the layout inside.

I'd have to get it replated to 3.5t anyway as I wouldn't be able to drive the 4.6t. I think it would look pretty cool with the wider track too, and if I'm able to change the arches inside I may end up with a little more room.

I doubt I'll end up with one, but I was curious...

Down plating to 3.5 and keeping the wheel chair lift would eat quite heavily into the available payload.

I didn't think of them as particularly heavy on their own, but now that you mention it I can imagine they weight a bit! Might just apply the KISS principle here...

Some people use the space Anyway.....i.e. build where the door is and only use a bit to enter the van. Opens up a couple of neat 'accessible from outside storage' options

Have a look at page 2 on this build to see what I mean

Thanks for the heads up. You're right, the door isn't that much of an issue and it will help with the ventilation when cooking too.

Tempted to get a Crafter now!

Hi There.

I have an LT46 mid-way through a camper conversion.

Wheel-wise you don't really have any other choices - the offset / PCD is unique to the 4.6tonne LT and nothing else is really out there designed to fit.

I like the look of these anyway, personally !

Thanks, I love the look of the rears but I'm not too keen on how much the hubs poke out at the front... Though once you add a couple of things to the van (I don't want to say "bling"), they start to "work" better I think.
