Hi Mate
I checked all the ratings when i got them but cant remember what they are sorry :/
They are 18" rims though, i just got them from Ebay, then sourced my own tyres.

just had the seat/bed fitted to the custom just need to finish the electrics off now, and then fit the curtains and its ready for its first trip out to the TT this year :D

also looking to get it in this month to have it fully colour coded and a rear spoiler fitted.

has anyone fitted a tow bar themselves too, is it straight forward or am I best getting a company to supply and fit, they seem fairly cheap on Ebay but I don't want my Jet Ski overtaking me on an A road!

Hi Mike, well done it looks great. What bed did you go for? Re your tow bar enquiry, I've just purchased a Witter detachable (F162Q) from Wilmond engineering £220 delivered, I went for this one as I didn't want the tow ball sicking out when not being used and i think it will look better. I was advised on this type as the bulk of the bracket is hidden behind the bumper and looks less obtrusive and no cutting of the bumper is required and I'm going to fit it this weekend weather permitting looking at the destructions seems to be very straight forward. What I think you should definitely purchase is a dedicated wiring loom for the electrics, works out a bit dearer but has plug in connectors at the rear light loom and a plug in connector by the passenger footwell again the instructions seem straight forward, I purchased this from traderracks.co.uk (ECS-TRANCUST-FRO7081U) £93 delivered and very helpful. If ordering i would advise you to take a look at the connectors behind the passenger footwell as there is two types of connector its a bit of ag getting the plastic covers offend you will definitely need to take the bottom cover of the seat belt housing off to get the foot well covers off. Hope this helps just check the bits i've suggested are the right ones for your vehicle.
