Great looking van! How does it drive on the wider alloys/tyres? Any 'tramlining'? I take it you have power steering? And is your van lifted to the Syncro height?

Hi Rich

no power steering as its only heavier at 0 mph

not noticed any tramlining either

im at about syncro height using springs from Westfalia equipped 2wd

drives lovely

only issue is it gets very dirty as tyres are so wide
