15" Tires
« on: June 17, 2012, 01:23:45 PM »
Hello All,

I'm coming close to completing a 5 year project of just getting a 64 bus back on the road - I've been thaking my time but have replaced lots - all new wiring, complete engine tear down, rebuilt carb and distributor, all new shifting, replaced all linkage bushings, rebuilt steering, and new exhaust (coming this week).  The body is still a disaster but that will be later.  The last major item before getting the bus on the road are the tires. I have stock suspension.  There are a lot of options out there and I was hoping to see some photos of what others have done. I've install a partial and modified westfalia kit from a 71.
I'm leaning towards a Michelin Defender:
195/65R15   
rim width 5.5" - 7"   
tire width 7.9" on 6"   
diameter 25
max load   1356@44
Any input would be appreciated - especially photos!
