I've often wondered how critical it is that the rears be as specified, even if it might be optimal for handling? :roll:

Loribingo- whats the load rating of the tyres?

Are the wheels steel or alloy? Do you have pictures?

They are original Mazda Bongo alloys.
Don't know how to put pictures on here, but I can send via text message or email.

So, please excuse my ignorance, but are all the rims the same size with just different tyres front and back or are the rims a different size front and back as well?

Rims will be the same, and many owners run with all 4 tyres the same, but they need to be the 215 spec for the back, with a load rating of at least 96.

The rolling circumference must be identical on a 4WD otherwise it will fubar the transmission, but this is not vital on a 2WD.
