BF Goodrich All Terrain Tyres

I fitted some BF Goodrich All Terrain tyres to my syncro the other day, the size was 225/75 16″ and I think they are pretty much the maximum size that will fit. It was not all plane sailing however as they were catching on the the rear wheel arches where they join the sills and the plastic rear bumper (not for long as it soon wears away). I ended up grinding off the edge and dressing back the lip on the wheel arches slightly. They were also rubbing on the front wheel arches occasionally depending on steering input etc. this was where they join the sill so I also dressed back this very slightly with a hammer.

  • Would love to see some close up shots of the rear wheel arch, to see how much room you managed after the mod, currently considering the same tyre size for my FWD T4 2.5

  • I would be interested to know the offset that your alloys have, as I plan on doing the same to my T4 but have not purchased alloys yet. I want to avoid fitting shims/spacers by getting aloys with the correct offset. Any chance of posting some info on the alloys? Thanks!
