Probably the ideal replacement tyre sizes, for the 1968~79 VW Type 2 and 1980~92/93 VW Type 25 (i.e. T3 or Vanagon), are the 195/65 R16 or 205/65 R16, which are commonly fitted to modern British & European vans and are readily available in commercial van & light-truck load ratings. _________________ Nigel A.

I've found this site really usefull in the past:
Loads of info on lots of things car related - including tyre sizes and how they will affect your speedo etc, with plenty calculators for various things, with explanations for each.
It's all just basic mathematics, which one would have studied for GCE 'O' Level or GCSE Mathematics. You also need to remember that 1 inch = 25·399 mm
Of course, a modern pocket calculator, with a stored value of Pi (i.e. approximately = 3·14159), is quite useful, but the old faithfuls of pencil, paper, log tables and sliderule are quite adequate! :D _________________ Nigel A. Skeet
