I'm thinking of trying to get 225/75 R16's on Merc ML rims fitted over the next weeks or two. Have some HD springs for the back and i'll make up some 20mm spacers, try 2 at first and them maybe 3?? Anyone raised the back end 60mm before?? :*

Hopefully the front will just wind up 60mm?? :(

As it says in the title, whats the biggest tyres some of you have fitted to your T4's???

Lets see some pics!! :D

nealglover - Absolutely loving that setup! T:

This is the dilema, slam it with some awesome rims or raise it up syncro style...................

I have it slammed on 18's just now but fancy a change. I'm thinking the syncro style could be the winter setup, keep the 18's and slam it back down in the summer. :*

Loving that look yoyo!!! A:A: Thats the kind of look i'm after now I think.

Seeing that i'm maybe thinking the 16" Merc ML wheels are to big and I need to find some 15's. I:
What wheels are they you have there, don't seem to recognise them??? :*

Loving the van. A: Thats the kind of stance i'm after.

What sort of clearance issues have you had with that? Is there some cutting required to get them on & have you raise the suspension any??

Cheers :ILU:

I'm liking the merc penta's. I've managed to track down a set of 15's.
