My LWB 1200 2.5 102 has 17" et35 7.5j Oz rims fitted with 215/60/17 tyres.
The tyres just kiss the front wheel arch top on full lock and compression. Only happens when i go fishing on a very rough road, but this is obviously not great. I also thought when i got them that they were heavy enough rated for my van at 725kg per wheel, but i have realised i need 760kg or over so i need to change them.
I am thinking of getting wolfrace assassin 17" 7j et42. I think the higher et and lower wheel width will fit with the same tyres as above.
Van is lowered but not that low as i raised it the other day, i recon 35-40mm maybe.
Any thoughts on this combo?
Cheers
Kieran

Hi, I have no thoughts other to say that I am in the Spring going to get a set of red and black Wolfrace Assassins with 225/55/17s! I look forward to seeing how you get on!
The tyre size you are looking at has about the same height wall all but a few mm so i think i will be okay as i am just touching the arches with the setup i have at the minute. I'm not so bold looking at plain old silver alloys, they hide curb rash better!
