They have the snowflake M&S but not the 3 Peaks, couldn’t get Any 3 Peak tyre to fit mine unfortunately.

    Couple of years ago someone posted on here about Cross Climates, at that time they where not available for vans, or at least not for Fiat Maxi chassis, but it appears they are now.

    It is a combination of wheel size and rear axle weight after it was operated Dave. I think you said yours was twin wheel axle where mine is single. It’s on 15” rims and rear axle is plated at 2430kg.

    It was a worrying time for a bit lol, thought I was going to have to go to 16” rims and most of the offers are not stamped to take the weight. I had a few tyre fitting firms involved and emails to manufacturers. Out of all the big names only Continental still produce a suitable tyre. By the time I found it I had almost given up lol

    Ah yes, you have an uprated weight don't you, and most (all?) put on the rear.
    The extra weight of the 4.6t over the more typical 3.5t is all on the rear as well but the dual wheels make it about the same load rating as the single wheels.
    I recall now you had a thread about the problem trying to find new wheels.

    Yes it was quite worrying, tyre fitting places weren’t sure if there was enough clearance on the front for bigger rims for tyres that would take the load as profile would have changed as well as size. Was looking like arches may have needed cutting/flaring but inner wing was doubtful as well.

    Not really something you think about when you buy a van though, you just assume as it gas tyres they are rightand you can still get some. Or was that just me being naive?
