Hello fellow vanners,

It has really been a very long time since I've been here. Hope everyone and their vans are more than great.

Let's get to business, shall we? I'm thinking of installing these wheels from summit racing. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/bsw-d58dc4

What do you guys think? Any advice on the size, fitment, review, looks,...etc? Or should I go for 16's instead of 15's?

Can everybody please post a pic of your wheels to see other options?

I got a set of Bassett's on the Brown van, love them. 15x7 4" offset in silver. There are only few things to consider with them, one is that they use a 1 inch 45 degree lug nut and that they must be balanced with a lug adapter, not on the hub. They also need a short metal valve, not rubber which will melt during heavy braking. Here is a pic of them if it posts.

One other thing I put 245 60's on because it the 7" rims are the sweet spot for the tire, only thing is it's a 1650 LB tire. It matches the numbers on the sticker in the door jamb, but is at the limit for the front weight and the van is a empty G20, with the conversion observe the tire capacity needed for that conversion. I should have went for 265's

I've started to go towards the Cragar Nomad 2. But since my conversion van has extended fiberglass fenders and steppers all around I'm thinking 15X10 with 295/50 tires front and back. Would it work?
