Our designer is on need of new tyres - they are probably original 20 year old ones!

We have 10" wheels with 145/10/???? tyres fitted.

Can we fit 12" rims?
If so what tyres should be fitted?

I'm ok with getting rims machined if necessary so alloys would be a possibility but what rim offset/J size am I looking for?

Why not email or phone Ian Smith at Riva. He's bound to know the exact size. I've found them very helpful for things like this

PS Farnzie. I was just looking through our paperwork from when we bought the Designer in 2004 and on the paperwork it states the the wheel size as 145/10
Hope that helps
Sandra

I'll give him a try, thought that someone on here would know though.
Had a look this weekend as we were away with our Dandy, loads of room front & back of tyre, and loads of room from tyre to arch, but not too much room above tyre.
Fairly simple job to make a spacer off the chassis to raise the height though and combined with low(ish) profile tyres 12" rims should fit ok I think.

I would not modify alloys as it damages the rim strength, steel rims are okay as long as you don't overheat them modifying the stud holes.

as for offset check out www.wheeldictionary.net/
