Correct Camper tires?
« on: May 29, 2012, 11:41:22 AM »
Hello Vee Dubbers, I'm new to this list, my name is Bob and I live in southern New Mexico. This is my first VW restore and she is a 69 camper and I want to put 15" EMPI GT5 chrome wheels on the old gal, But I can't find a good 15" tires to go with them that has the weight load needed for a camper.
Any ideals????

Thanks
Bob

How wide are the rims..  My Eurovan had 15 inch rims on it and I think, it had a 195 70 15 loaded rated tire.  I forget the exact size. I have a set in the garage, I'll check it and get the exact specs. But I think the rims are like 5.5 inches wide.  Some of those EMPI rims are only 4 or 4.5 inches.  Might be too narrow.
