hello mate all depends on your van drop etc..lowered,standard

i sale loads of steels from standard to wider merc steels,to genuine 16inch vw ones to banded steels...can supply any,new or used..

a good tyre size i feel on the steels is a 225 55 16 99w xl defo if they where the wider 7j x 16 et33 merc steels,which i can lay my hands on a few sets at the mo..simon.

Weve just put white white wall trims on ours and they look very good but i would be interested to know where you have found white wall tyres as when i was looking i struggled to find the size.

Always liked the look of white walls, I know a chap who had his tyres done by Mr Whitewalls, and it looked superb, that was on his Bay window. I quite fancy them on my bus, i think it would like quite decent against the dark blue.

Colse , if I where to buy tyres at 195/70R15c would you have steels to match?
If not, I'm interested in these wider Merc wheels you talk, would not having load rated wheels be a big deal ?

Cheers
