You're quite right. I just found a tyre calculator this morning and they should be 235/60/15 to keep the same diameter and keep the speedo accurate.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Ah good I thought so.

I use 235/65/R15 on the rear and 225/65/R15 on the front. Rear tyres look like a proper donut on 7J rims, especially with the white wall writing. The 225's on the front keep the speedo very close to original. Fronts look ok but they'd be even better with a 6.5J or a 6J rim there to get the same visual effect as the rear. Good stance on the van too.

Big thumbs up for BFG Radials from me. By several country miles the best tyres I've had on my van. Over 30k on the front and the rears went to 45k miles.
