    Hi I have just bought a T5 LWB converted with pop top. It has alloys on but most of the time I end up in fields . I have got a set of steel 16s to put all terrain on . They currently have 205/65/r16c tyres on what would be my options without messing with the suspension etc ? Will these fit on...
