It doesn't mention a load rating on the wheel anywhere?

You need to weigh your MH fully loaded so you know what is and is not possible FIRST

The figures quoted are per tyre not axle

Hmm, this is worrying.

Surely I'm not the first person to put all terrain tyres on a van?

There are genuine Fiat 16" 5x118 steel wheels available. These say 2014-2017 but I think they would fit your 2007 with the correct wheel trims.

Thanks for the link,

So long as the centre bore and offset are the same I don't see why those won't work. Now, I need to get my van onto a weigh bridge by the sounds of things..

Its not what your van weighs now although that is very important its what the plated maximum axle weights are.
The tyres have to be capable of the max weight per axle.

So if you axle weight is 2050kg, each tyre has to be rated above 1050kg, you have to have a margin.

I would have ATs on my motorhome in an instant if I could find some. So if you do with a load index of 116 let me know

This is me

Don't forget that all terrain tyres will probably be very noisy on tarmac due to the chunky tread pattern.

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Ats arent that bad, MTs are the ones to avoid. You do get a noise increase but not dissimilar to winter tyres.

The first tyre I can find that will take the weight is a 29" tyre and that wont fit so I still think its a non starter.
