Re: p1800 wheel sizes (ironjon3x)

Hi Jon, I've been considering very much the same in particular in relation to a brake upgrade which I'm working on. In this respect I have had good help from my 1800ES friend Per, in Sweden who has one of the coolest and most professional modified 1800ES you can imagine. Check out the chassis list #4352! The wheel/tire combination shown in the gallery has subsequently been changed to 17x8 Koyo Magic with ET 42 and 3mm spacers = ET 39 corrected i.e. pretty close to original. Tires are 225/45-17. According to Per this works perfect, HOWEVER, there's obviously also a drawback which has to be considered...... You need to adjust the "stop bolt" limiting the max movement of the pitman arm -this in turn (ha ha) has the effect that the turning radius will go from excellent to worse than a V70 = significant! But how often do you really need to make curb-to-curb U-turns? Best regards John
