    275/40/20 to 265/40/20

    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...

    Dealer's responsibility - Recoding for 20s

    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...

    Wheels/Tyres, last time ... that's a promise!

    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...

    20" wheels with BF Goodrich - kind help requested for the uninitiated

    Hello, 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...

    Hi all 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...

    Spacers question 275/40/20

    Hi everyone, I noticed today that my front wheels come out further in the arch than my rear wheels do. I'm on 275/40/20 but moving to 245/45/20 which will give me 20mm further poke out than currently but I'm guessing that obv the rears will still look further in than the fronts. Is this where...

    The perfect 20” tyre size

    Hi guys, I have 40/275 tyres on 20” rims. Would it be possible to put 45/275 tyres on, or would they rub when putting on a full steering lock?

    275/40/20 tyres on 8.5J wheel?

    Just when I thought I had all my 20" T32 tyre wrangling clear in my head and I'm thinking about new tyres, another issue crops up. To recap, my van has 20" Zito 935 wheels and tyres are 275/40/20 106 front and back as the van was supplied to me, so all good there (I know many prefer 265/40/20...

    Velare 20” VLR12 and tyres

    I bought my Caravelle second hand with these 20” Velare VLR12s on and have done only about 4.5k. They’re in excellent condition but not my cup of tea. I’m up for selling them complete with current tyres which have also only done about 4.5k Anyone interested and want to make a decent offer?
