Wanted to give a shout out to Australian VW performance, took my bus in for a service and tune and to have a bit of a once over mechanically, it won’t be a daily driver but it is my only car so I wanted to get the play in the steering looked at in particular. Got it back today and the contrast is amazing. Steering is amazing and just runs so much nicer. Well worth spending the dollars to get it sorted properly.
If you search through the forums u will find plenty of info on what tyres are are best suited for kombis .plus how tyre preasure can play a big part in the stability of the vehicle, worth a read seeing how you have gone this far towards getting better steering.
Yeah I’ve read a few of those threads, looks like a light truck Tyre is the go next time they’re due, or just when enough times elapsed that I can tell my wife they’re due!
yep what ever works best for you.
I switched over to light/trucks. 7 yrs ago and noticed a difference straight away. Tyre preasure can play a big part as well.
I run 40 psi in the rr and 36 frt, but what ever suits you is the way to go,dont be afraid to experiment ,
I’m running 36 front and back currently, I’ll try a little bit extra in the back The handling after the steering box overhaul is already so much better!
What ever is best foryou.
I dont believe there is any hard and fast rule here ad every van is different due to how you drive it,
How you load it and so on .
Cbus made a good point though in regard to rr tyre preasure, higher preasure in the rr COULD prevent rr end sway which in turn could give you front end wander but whether that applies to L T tyres im not sure.
