After much research on this forum, and inspired by the off-road tyre threads, I decided to take the plunge and go up a fair size from the standard 205/65 that came on my steel 16s.

I wanted to keep to a mostly road friendly approach, so opted for Hankook 225/70R16 103H RA33. They are marketed as an SUV tyre.

The 103 weight rating exceeds the GVW of my T26.
The economy, wet braking and noise figures were the best I could find.

The ride is way smoother and quieter than the Continental VAN CONTACT commercials they replaced, potholes cause less of a bump, and now the speedo reads exactly correct by the GPS, instead of under reading by >4 MPH.

I just need to paint the wheels an interesting colour now...
