I recently replaced the tyres on my Jurgens Fleetline (1998), which were Firestone S211 175x80x14, with GoodYear G22 8 ply 185 R14's. The tyre sales person as well as my own measurements suggests that this tyre will take up an extra 1cm running space inside the wheel arch of the Jurgens. Will the caravan be able to handle that without catching the top cover?

I urgently need advice on this (alternative is spacers) as the next trip with the van will be to the sea!

Please help!

Ek kan nie glo dat daar niemand daar buite is wat nog nie bakkie bande onder hul woonwaens gesit het nie! Help my asseblief met raad - myne is klaar opgesit - ek wil net weet of hul sal vry loop binne die modderskerm (bo). Asseblief enige een met die ondervinding - laat weet aub.

Hi Nico,
Have you measured the available space around the tyre in the wheel arch yet. If you did this and measured the tyre you want to fit you could determine the free space you will have after the change. Whilst the spacer option works it is costly, but it is very simple to install. Do you live in the Jhb area?
Regards,
Jan Heyneke
