    generally bigger tyres handle the weight better ... but
    theres quite a difference in circumferance between 195 70 15 and 225 75 16 , the speedo would need recalibrating when changing from one to tother.
    first thing id do is follow the mrs in the car at a steady 50 mph to see what the van speedo says .
    if its correct stick with the size of tyre youve got. or the next largest.
    bigger tyres than the ones that match the speedo will result in the speedo reading low. all the speedo actually knows is the revs per minute of the drive wheels, it uses a nominal circumferance of the tyre to give speed.

    I was just going to say something similar
    I would be surprised if that range of sizes are all options on the exact same van as there will be such a difference in rolling circumference. May also be a clearance thing on the wheelarch (the bigger tyres may go with a raised 4WD option maybe?).

    I changed from 195/70R15 to 215/70R15 and my speedo went from overreading (showing higher than actual speed) to underreading by about 2%.
    I chose bigger specifically to get higher gearing as the Sprinter/LT Dually is so low geared.

    Choice of tyre can depend on miles you plan to do as well of course. so many motorhomes do little miles - if you are one of those, may as well get a high wearing tyre as no point in having a tyres with loads of tread left that you have to change as it is cracking with age.

    I have Hangkook full winter tyres on, I love them even in the summer in the South of France, I am in the Alps now and the reassurance I have on ice and snow is impressive

    We have same van....went for the michelins though can see above there are other options...these seem to outdo others on slippery surfaces but have heard the continentals are quieter on the road. As mentioned it's about the usage and sidewall issues (personally our van never stationary for than a week anyway...not necessarily touring just run till engine fully hot as any vehicle stationary for long is not good) so tyres regularly exercised which I think is good for them. The tyres that came off were 7 years old OMG !! but looked good....the van had just been a "toy" till we bought it !! Our mechanic fitted the 500 michelins then cheerfully said "..yer can throw them away in three years n all !!" ...EH !! So, possibly better choices above LOL 😂. Maja
