Bear in mind these are not suitable for the rear of a Bongo.

Don't know how to edit my original post :roll:
Should now read :
4 original Bongo wheels with brand new tyres 195/65R15.
£25 each ono.

I was unaware this size of tyre was unsuitable for the rear as I bought the vehicle with them on #-o

Sadly they're not wide enough for the rear, 2 or 4 wd.

The load rating must be 96 or greater, too.

Perfect for the front, though.

Yea but no but ..... as long as the load ratings are ok is it really that critical (clearly some tyre fitter didn't think so :roll: :lol: )

I just fancy there could be an issue if you fit tyres of lower spec than original.

Happy to be proved wrong. [-o<

I know what you mean. This one will run and run. So many Bongos​ with under rated tyres, unbeknownst to their owners, both in UK and Japan. :roll:

Guilty here also. My Bongo as purchased was fitted with same size tyres all round; below the load rating and undersize for the back. We don't hear of Bongos suffering tyre failures on here however it isn't difficult to visualise the fun your insurance company would have when they discover below-spec tyres on your vehicle. I recall "ignorance is no excuse in law"!

P.S. I bought my Bongo off a man of the law. :wink:
