hi guys wondered if you could help.just a quick one, has anyone else had the problem of the tyres scrubbing at the front on their van when running these tyres just trying to establish if the tracking is out or if its due to the size of the tyres.thanks in advanceT:

If it's the inner or outer edge then it will be the tracking that's out.

Oh...that size isn't suitable for a van due to only being 92 load rated.

thanks bud i know they are not suitable due to load rating just wondered if the scrubbing on the tyres was being caused by the weight of the van or if it could want tracking.thing is im fitting some 16" wheels on now with load rated tyres but didnt want to scrub up them tyres as well you see.might just get it tracked up anyway.just trying to save a bit of money if it dont need doing if that makes sense.thanks :ILU:

Like I said...if it's the inner or outer edge that's wearing then the tracking is out.

20 quid to get the tracking checked/adjusted is cheaper than replacing tyres. ;)

18" A5 wheels are 8.5" wide and around ET28-ET32....not an ideal width/offset on a T4.....too much poke.

Oh and only load rated to 650kgs.
