Re: Bigger wheels

It does work, but it's easier for others on the forum if you unpack that zipped document and upload each picture individually. That way you get a preview of the picture then too.

YES. I run a part of Angel Tuning along with Nigel and Andy except my patch is Scotland and Ireland. If you haven't had a remap on your Doblo yet, you really need to get it done ;-) I'm sure we could sort something for you (wink wink!).

That's fantastic thanks. As for the weight rating on the tyres...I don't really carry alot of weight around in the back. It's probably no worse than a large estate car

Re: Bigger wheels

I hope you are OK with the weight rating of the tyres, as they should be on *reinforced* shouldn`t they?
Not sure about passing the MOT either with a lower weight rating.
Something to check?
Anyway, they do look good

Mmmm, you're right! I'll need to check this one. Are the weight ratings the same for the MPV and the cargo van version?

Re: Bigger wheels

No they aren't. For the Passenger version the front axle gross weight is 1000kg, and the rear axle gross weight is either 1200kg or 1400kg - but is most likely 1200kg. So, as a minimum on the front you need a weight rating of 84 (although I'd recommend more to stop the tyres wearing too quickly) and on the back you need a weight rating of 90 (although I think my original tyres on the back are 88 so I may be wrong).

I'd imagine that with such low profile tyres you only have a weight rating of around 84. It should also say on the sidewall of the tyre something like "500kg load max".

Re: Bigger wheels

Hi Ozzie and thanks for the info. I've just checked the sidewall and I can't see anything relating to weight etc. However, the tyre size states 215/40/ZR17 87W. Is the 87W part the rating I need to know?

Re: Bigger wheels

Yes the 87 is the weight rating which = 545kg per tyre and the W is the speed rating which = 168mph maximum speed. I do believe the minimum on the rear axle should be a load rating of 88, it may be worth checking with your local dealer or at least asking them the gross rear axle weight. Obviously the speed rating is fine.

Re: Bigger wheels

The standard Doblo uses 88's but the extra carrying capacity needs 92's. The rear axle weight can be read from the plate under the bonnet. I think the standard weight is around 1000 kg or 1100kg while the extra load is 1400kg or so.

So Mr Angel what kind of money would a remap cost for a JTD we sure could use more than 100bhp?

I got a horrendous quote already in Rip Off Ireland!!

Re: Bigger wheels

Just to avoid confusion, the extra weight model is only avaliable on the Cargo version of the Doblo, not the passenger version but yes alfavan is right I knew I'd seen the weights somewhere, so 88's you do really need unless your MOT inspector doesn't pick up on it

Nope The wheels and tyres are a perfect fit without any spacers or clearance issues whatsoever!
