Some details about my rig. I have a 14' 6" Windsor
Rapid with off road suspension
. Modifications i have done are as follows, 9kg and 4.5 kg gas bottles, twin 60 litre water tanks
with an additional 35 lt tube tank fitted between the bumper and van, (bumper eased further out to accommadate tube) I've replaced 7 leaf springs with 8 leaf as 7 collapsed. I've raised by 50mm the two rear stabilizer stays to give greater ground clearance. Solar power
system, twin panels and deep cycle batteries. Cooper ATR 265/75x16 tyres These were the same size and stud pattern as my vehicle but as i'm about to upgrade my car in the next month, which will then have 18" tyres. Internal mods are plenty with pot and clothes drawers
tv/dvd cd stereo etc etc. I currently have a NP (2003) petrol/gas Pajero which i will be trading in on a NS turbo diesel/gas as the NP was under powered to pull the van in the rugged areas that i go. I'm rapt in the van and internally everything is as new even though i've taken the van to places
that most people would not take a off road van of this size.
with regards from Col,

When i ordered my rapid i believe it came with 15" rims and as i had 16" on my pajero i requested 16" and with the same stud pattern etc. They said no worries and just did it. Looking underneath at the wheel arch etc there is heaps of room. There is no reason why they couldn't fit 16s.
Hope this helps,
Kind regards from Col
