Thanks for the information. In looking at your pictures, there appears to be very little clearance between the 215/65R16C tires and the wheel well. There appears to be much more space between the 205/55R16 and the wheel well. But even the 205/55R16 's look better than the "too small" origional tires. I'm probably gonna follow your lead on this. Please post again when you have driven on the 205/55R16's for a while and have checked your average milage over multiple refuelings. I don't wanna make any expensive mistakes.
I don't want to degrade the cargo capacity of the van, so I am reluctant to jump to aftermarket aluminum wheels. And I strongly dislike the origional hubcaps that came on the ""SV" version and the plastic centercaps that came on the "base" version. I'd like to find some chrome centercaps that fit the center hole of both the 15 and 16 inch factory steel wheels or possibly just a smigion larger. I intend to have the factory steel wheels chrome plated. If the center cap is slightly larger, I can have the hole machined out to accomodate a slightly larger, but factory appearing, center cap. And then just add some chromed lug nuts. Any suggestions?
There is still the question of correcting the speedometer. ???
