Grin yes if you put 15s on with big fourtrack size tyres
you may have to reshape suspension arm to accomadate them ,,, but the dont half churn the turf up in third gear,, just watch out for the kid on scooter behind you lol Grin realy push it , push it some more ,, keep pushing , and you might see 105 Grin also dont try this at home the box dont like it ,, drive along at 30 mph then genty select reverse !! then floor the throtle and let clutch out ,, thats one way to to smoke yer tyres ,, so much smoke that yer bus disappears ,, why did i do this 300 miles from home ,, radio was not loud enougth to drown out the diff noise on the way home , them were the days 5 speed boxes 150 Grin
going to get some tyres off bmw x5 for me 18s

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 195/65R16 or 205/65R16, which are commonly fitted to modern British & European vans and are readily available in commercial van & light-truck load ratings.

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 = 25399 mm

Of course, a modern pocket calculator, with a stored value of Pi (i.e. approximately = 314159), is quite useful, but the old faithfuls of pencil, paper, log tables and sliderule are quite adequate! :D
