Re: NZ Camper conversion

Really helpful info, thanks. 15"x7" - never considered that. I'm looking around as well and can't find any 17" that work from a cost/looks point of view here in the UK. There are some 16" on eBay, but they are from 4x4s so the offset will be wrong and I don't want to take a chan...

Re: NZ Camper conversion

Didn't think it would have that much effect. Looking forward to putting in some new springs and shocks now. Thinking I am just ...
