In the same boat totally.

I mean a set of ( I dont know what size yet ) tyres are 80-100+ each. Decent make anyway.

This is like a total spin off thing that I didnt plan on doing just yet because my alloy cracked and the whole load rating dilemma.

If only I was rich.. id have a fleet

Default Re: who will band my steelies?

So as far as I can make out the J mean inches between the rims, I've gone for a 7 up front and an 8 in the rear. I', running 205/75/15 in the front and 225/75/15's out back. The rears are quite a tall combo measuring 27 inches, but that's the look I'm going for and I'm also lowering 2 inches too.
I've been collecting parts for ages now, got the steels for 20 off ebay nearly a year ago, I'm thinking of using the standard set the van is currently sitting on for the winter.
Maybe once you decide on the look you're going for the rest should fall into place. Have a look at the banded steel threads that are running as the guys there have said what tyre sizes they are using.
Hope that helps a bit.

Ok cool, kinda makes sense.

Is the minimum profile for 15 inchers 70? When does it start effecting the aspect ratio?

I like the sound of 7.5 front and 8.5 rear.

Any reason people go for wider steels at the back? Id do it purely for look. But is it for loading?

How do you find members easily on here? Without trawiling through the member list?
