Hi.....
I can find the offset but they are 7.5 x 16!!! Ideally I would like a 40 profile, but can't seem to find any that are load rated!!

Can't*

I'm also not sure whether 18" will be too big and give a crashy ride.....which is why I am looking at 16s! Any one have any feedback on ride etc from 16s to 18s?

16's with 225/55 tyres are always going to ride better than 18's with 45 profile tyres.

40 series tyres on 16" alloys are a big no no for a T4...too small for starters and nowhere near high enough load rating wise.

Thanks for the responses guys......I'm going to have to have a think about my plan of action.....maybe 18s are a better look compared to 16s with a big bubble tyre - but I don't want it to be an awful ride (daily driver)!

Arggghhhhh I don't like making decisions......:*
