age old question, what size wheels should I put on my swb T4 lowered 40mm. I use the van for windsurfing so I dont carry much weight in the back. I've found some RS8 load rated wheels and tyres the wheel is 8 x 18 5 x 112 ET42 and the tyre size on offer is 235/40/18.

My concern is are these size wheels going to catch on the inner arches on the front and rear. Would I be better off going for 17" wheels with a 225 width and 45 profile tyre? I dont want to fork out my cash for wheels that are too big and cripple the ride.

Your views and opinions much appreciated.

cheers

JB
