It has been asked many times but can’t find a response to my specific dilemma.
If I swap 275 x 40 for 255 x 50 or 55’s will the ride be better and are there any other advantages? I’m looking to get a better ride as the priority.
Great condition with 2 tyres being 500miles old (£220 each) and the other 2 having loads of tread left. 275/40/20
One scuff on the lip of one alloy
Currently fitted to my T6 transporter
Ready for sale next weekend (19/8/23)
Collection only from Swindon
Looking early for some winter wheels and tyres. I want them to fill the arches like my 20" 40 profile wheels do now but obviously want more meat on the tyres, is there a calculation to work out the rolling circumference with different size alloys and tyres..tia..
Current set up..
I know its been discussed before but so much conflicting info....
About to order some 20" LV3 for my T32 kombi, and they can come with tyres 275/40/20. Front wheels are 8.5J with ET45.
Van is going on to Bilstein B14 suspension so will be lowered 40-50mm.
Leighton Vans say the tyres will rub...
I'm looking to lower my t6.1, looking at the eibach Racine 50mm or eibach so low 45mm. I've got new wheels to put on with 275/40/20 tyres, anyone got photos of either springs fitted and should I expect rubbing??
Hi All -
Toying with changing wheels. Currently have 20" 9J Wheels , 275/40/20 tyres , van lowered 50mm (it's a camper).
Quite like the look of Supermetal Cells but not sure if the ET45 will rub, anyone have similar or advise what max offset I could look at?
Appreciate this can be a bit of a minefield but maybe my questions are simple.
Question / scenario 1….
My van is lowered on coil overs and runs on
265 / 40 / 20.
I don’t want my van to go lower but I want to drop my alloy size to 19 inch for improved comfort. Can I help to offset the...
About to bite the bullet on some 19" 9.5J wheels and the offset is machined at point of purchase. I'm thing ET40 up front and ET30 at the rear as they usually look best with a little difference F/R.
I've looked through pages of threads and can see some saying they run this spec OK and at least...
My T6.1 Camper came with front wheels 8.5 x 20 wheels shod with 275/40/20 tyres and original suspension. It never looked quite right to me, too wide and the amount of spray thrown up the sides of the (Black) Van looked horrible.
I’ve changed them to 245/45/20 and it looks better / steers better...
Taken off my T6, only covered approximately 1000 miles. Around 9mm on each tyre. Manufactured this year (12th week 2022)
Would look great on a swamper!
Retail at £200+ a corner. Open to sensible offers. Would prefer collection but could meet around the South Yorkshire area.
Hi, I shall continue my noob questions, I've never bought tyres for a van so its my first time.....
Im about to take the plunge on these:
Toyo Proxes T1 Sport SUV
275/40/20 106 (XL): max 1900 kg per axle
Are these ok?
In the never ending pool of threads on suspension, I am looking specifically for people with b14’s running on their lowest with 275 40 20’s.
I have -50mm springs, definitly not a boaty as stock and rides ok, but can be a bit bouncy and crashy.
How are the b14’s on their lowest...
Due to a blow-out on the M25 and having to be recovered, I used the opportunity to move from 275/40/20 to 265/40/20 tyres on the front.
An expensive move, but always thought the 275’s were too big of a tyre for the steering pump to be moving.
I also fitted ‘decent’ tyres, Goodyear Eagle F1s...
Oh my god, I'm going round in circles with wheels and tyres sizes! So if it's a 20" wheel the tyre will be a 265/40/20 for my t32 ( when I'll actually get it god knows! ) .. This will through the speedo out by 4%... Is there a way to get the speedo adjusted so that it reads the correct...
I've recently got my t6.1 camper from new. 20" wheels fitted and so I checked it was reading correctly, appears to be under reading by up to 3mph (common thread on here).
My question, should this have been done by the dealer/converter, at the very least I should have been told.
I can drive...
Hi, newbie here so please forgive if I have missed an earlier response on this - I have searched the forum.
I have 18" wolfrace Eurosport aero's fitted which came from the camper conversion company with budget sports tyres. The tyres are wearing fast and are useless on grass/mud/snow.
Morning all, sorry to go over old ground (again) but time has marched on since my first post and thankfully after a few disappointments my converter has finally secured me an Indium Grey T28 T6.1 DSG 20 plate (the one with the sport box - ), which is being picked up in the next couple of days...
I acquired my van in early summer. It came with 20" wheels and some of the worse tires I've had the misfortune of using. They're 275/40/20.
I really like the look of the BF Goodrich and the closest match I can find to my existing size is 265/55r20. Is there and easy way to see if they...
Over the last few months I’ve been planning the upgrades to my T6.1 T30 with wheels and suspension (B14 Komfort) being top priority and I have to say I’m completely confused with wheel and tyre selections.
Looking online and speaking to the wheel shops they are recommending 275/40/R20...
