Got some shiny new boots for the bus!
OOOH...What a sexy beast she is....Like those jon...(what are they)?
They are called Sirrocco Chrome 17'' and I got them thru my work.
I am running 215/40/17 Nankang NSII on the front and 235/45/17 Nankang NSII on the rear.
Some pics of my Kombi the day I bought him and the transformation.
nice..........very nice.......would love some of those myself.........i can only imagine what they would cost !!!! let alone the tyres....eeek.... and the way I drive....hahaha tend hug the gutters a bit !!!hahaha
will we see them on Sunday Jon !!
Cost me all up under a grand and yes you will see me on sunday, try to get me out of him will be the hard part Wendy!
You cant have much room there between tyre and rear arch?...im guessing 3 mm..
Jon, so what's the go with 235/45's on the rear and 215/40's on the front?
Take your time over it and just imagine you're explaining it to an idiot
Close enough Kel, the good thing about bays is that the lower you go the more negative camber you get. Or you can roll the guards.
No one is an idiot emby!
Just for the look of skinnier wheels on the front and fatter wheels on the back,cosmetics really.
Cheers Jon. So what do the numbers actually mean?
Does it affect braking?...skinny front wide back?
Emby..215 means the width othe tyre..
17 means the diametre of the rim
40 or sometimes 65 or 75 etc etc means the profile which is..a certain percentage of the width...help me here jon
Yeah the 215 means that the tyre is 21.5cm across the tread.The 45 means the sidewall is 45%of the tread width and the 17 is the wheels diameter.
No it doesnt efeect braking if your tyres are in good condition and your shock absorbers are up to scratch, but if you want to get technical....
I better shut up actually, could natter on for ages about this.
Cheers for that. Now I can sound like an expert and not an idiot
geez photoshop is an awesome program It can do ANYTHING!
Emby, tyres is my profession and my one and only profession. Ask me a question on maths or physics and I would be the idiot. Point is never feel like an idiot for asking a question.
:lol: Proof will be in the proverbial pudding my garrellous friend!
