Evening all,

My question is, has anyone fitted 20" rims to their t4 and if so did they lower at all? How safe is it to lower without arch rubbing?

Am I better going for 18" and if so same question how far can I lower without rubbing arches ?

Thanks for the replies in advance !

PS: having the van built and pick it up Saturday woop woop !A:

Really...35 series tyres on 20" alloys are more comfy on a 2 ton van than 18's? I: :*

Only someone in Norfolk could claim that....and not actually drive their van.....

Oh and take a look below... T:

Maybe the tyres are wider than mine so they go over the potholes rather than in em?

It could be the case lads. I found that once. Nothing to do with rim diameter but width of tyre.

I know the low profile says "crashbangwhollop" but I have found this before.
