Although they're a bit wider than the standard 185 R14 tyres, they're almost exactly the same diameter (within a couple of mm), so assuming there's nothing funky about the geometry of your van, then I'm guessing they should fit okay.

Thanks for that,

I guess ill get a set of 15" wheels then. Ill look on the parts for sale (or at the EMPIs as they are not too expensive) unless anyone has any for sale.

Cheers,

empis etc may be to narrow for this tyre, check compatibility

I run 205/70-15s on a 7” alloy (ARC Alurads) and they work perfectly. Makes sure yo get a wheel with an appropriate offset (et) and you should be fine.
