Check out my blog post on the subject http://shineybus.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/wheels.html

There is info here http://www.toyota-granvia.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1936 which is useful and http://www.wheel-size.com/size/toyota/granvia/ gives the stock sizes and has a calculator for checking the oversize you can fit.

I finally fitted some calibre HiVan wheels I got from ebay. See here http://shineybus.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/wheels-2.html and http://shineybus.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/the-wheels-on-bus-go-round-and-round.html - if you can find some they are a straight swap.

Hey

They look great as they are!

Try http://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?wheel1=215-65-15X6ET29&wheel2=195-65-16X6.5ET38&wheel3=225-50-17X6.5ET24&fcl=50mm&wcl=30mm&scl=50mm

16" tyres with a 60 profile would be pretty much the same rolling radius as the stock 215/70 x 15 - so gearing and speedo accuracy would be unaffected.

If the wheels are wide enough 225's fill the arches nicely and don't foul anything
