    Front wheel 20x9J ET35 offset

    Hi All, first time post so apologies if this has been raised already. Purchasing my first T6 and looking to lower it by 70mm and fit 20” rims. Does anyone have experience or an opinion on fitting front 20x9, ET35 and rear 20x10 ET42. Is this config likely to cause any issues i.e rubbing? Thanks

    Planning T6 conversion - do I need to lower the van

    Bought a Startline with business pack but it seems to sit too high. 16 inch wheels. They look better when lowered but is it worth the cost? 18 or 20 inch wheels plus tyres and lowering over £2000??

    How low / how much front clearance for kerbs / car parks?

    Can anyone with an lv-s chin / splitter or other alternative give me an idea of how much clearance you have at the front and how low you’ve gone on suspension pls? I sometimes do multi storey car parks and most worried about the ramps. I was thinking about 180mm would do it? Anyone got less and...

    Raising the ride height

    Hi all, Please excuse the noob questions. I’ve recently bought a lovely T6 LWB kombi. It’s currently lowered on 20in wheels. It’s too low for me and the tyres rub at full lock so I’m planning to put it on 19in rims and raise it to 20mm less than standard to allow access to rough campsites...

    Ex RAC suspension needs changing urgently!

    I've just bought an ex rac t6. I've been told the rac t32s have uprated Suspension. Not sure if that's springs and dampers. The ride is awful. Very boaty and the steering seems really light. It's going to be a work van but won't be carrying no more than 100kgs at time. I'd like it a bit lower...
