Re: Tyre Sizes

205 80 16's were never an option on a 14" Syncro. They were standard on a 16" Syncro but the transmission, dampers and brakes were all different to a 14" and for good reason. 215/75/15 on a 14" is good enough and anything bigger brings another set of problems. Why not try 225/70/...

Or 7.98% .......!
205 r14 - 215 75 15 = 2.9%

185R14 - 215/75/15 = 7.98% (652 vs 704)

Original tyres = 185R14
Optional tyres = 205/70/14 & 205R14 (16" is another matter)

Re: Cheap Syncro on the Bay....?

I have bought six vehicles off E Bay, four Mercs from UK and two Syncros from Germany. Only one dud amongst them but I came away quits after a battle. Two of the Mercs I still have and are probably the best cars I will ever own!

Re: 89 Syncro with LPG - What's It Worth

Stick it up on E Bay with a reserve of £5k and set the bidding at £0.99p and see where the bidding goes to. That will be its value ..... on the day!

Re: Spare wheel carrier - Front and Rear

Those members are not really chassis rails but energy absorbing deformation beams... ah well... a pragmatic mod. Storing spare wheels is a perennial Syncro conundrum. And that doez bring cg'eth fwd & down rather than back & up... call it a compromise Andrew? Yes not chassis rails in the tru...
