To be fair speedo isn't affected that much if you go up to 15" wheel size. Tyre wise 195/50/15 will be perfect.


Pretty much any 4 stud Ford wheel will fit ok

195/50/16's fit pretty well, no rubbing, even with a full load... got these for £50 if you want em... all good tyres! Look quite smart on the van too!
