Aside from the normal splits supplied on some vehicles, are wider splits available, and in a pattern, say like Sunraysia Steel Rims?

If so, are they only 16", or can I get some 15" for my Delica?

Lone wolf.
There are 15" splitters avialable, they are used on a lot of light trucks, I have a set but the ofset would not suit your magnificant limo. There is a brazilian wheel avialable to suit the deli that has a deep well, this deep well allows the tyres to be fitted with out any tools other than a small lever. Eric.

Eric, thankyou.

I have just purchased the "Tyre Pliers" Brad Breaker, & 2 Levers.

I was hoping to make things a little easier by running splits, but I'll wait & see.

Cheers

LW,

I think you will find that splits won't make the job that much easier. I would say if anything they are a bit more dangerous as there is always that chance they will come apart when trying to reseat the bead of the tyre.
