Hi,

I've just bought some Sportline Alloys for my T32 and have been assured that the load rating is fine (I hope it is).

I now need to get tyres but have found that I need 103 load rating. The usual tyres people fit to Sportline Wheels are 235/50/18 101w.

Does anyone know of tyres this size but with 103 rating?

or...

Could I fit these 255/45R18 103W XL TL FALKEN STZ 01 ????

They're wider so I think they should be the right diameter. Does anyone know of any problems with this?

Any advice would be great?

THanks,

Dai Bee

That's the exact tyre I have on mine!

Great grip in dry and wet, nice kerbing strip, 9mm new tread depth (1mm more than mostT:)
2000 miles done on em so far.

Only downside is they are noisy. A lot louder than the standard bridgestones which were near silent.

One last question on this...

If I fit 255/45R18 will I still be able to lower my van? I was going to lower it by 40mm but I'm wondering with such wide wheels will they rub in the wheel arches?

Thanks,

Dai
