Alrighty... Basically the story goes... I've been travelling since early December and dad's been using the van to keep it running nicely... Only thing is my van's running these wheels and he's left a few more kerb marks on them :*

Mercedes Lorinser LM6 SLR 19's


So... me thinking I need some more practical wheels for daily use, and keep those as show wheels, I went on a search. After a few eBay messages and bit n pieces I got me these! 225 60 16 99W branded tyres fitted with 5mm tread :D








Also... I'M BEGINNING TO DREAM OF SOME STREEEEEEEEEETCH

Mine are fitted with Pirelli 235/35/19s all round. They fit on my van without any mods... There is space to lower 50mm and that will be done in April...
