Mk6 135/350 lwb tyres size

Postby JASEB70 » Wed Jan 13, 2021 7:02 pm

Hi all,

Would anyone know if I could stick a set of 215/85/16 on to replace the 215/75/16 the rear looks like it would be fine just worried the front will rub.

Thanks in advance

Should be fine it’s only 10% taller side wall

As long as they're all the same you should be fine, if not the ABS system, (if fitted), will have a hissyfit. Might throw the speedo reading out a tad too.

Welcome to the forum mate!

85s are like super overkill; I have to ask why?

I looked on eBay for some budget all terrain tyres and couldn’t find any the original size but found Hi Fly vigour 215/85/16 4 tyres for £279. We need all terrain tyres as the van spends quite a bit of time off road as we race Mx.

I see why now mate; you're right 215 75 16 in all terrain is quite an odd size to find.
