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.
Interesting, I would have expected the family version to be uprated - after all it could potentially carry 7 fat adults. However, having checked - I've got 88's.
Ah bon.

Re: Bigger wheels

Come on Captain you don't want to ruin your bumpstops carrying 7 heaps!! That's rich coming from me my poor Doblo sits on the stops from time to time... Good point though I always think of carrying little people cos we're thinking of buying a Doblo 7 seater for ferrying the small ones around

I've never had the Doblo on the stops - yet! Even with a whole sound rig or mobile disco in the back

Now come on Ozzie tell the truth! When pressed into service as a 'passion wagon' I bet you've given the suspension a good work out

did your doblo happened to install the BMC CDA?
To be honest, I haven't got round to fitting a BMC CDA yet to the Doblo though I have one fitted on my 156 2.4JTD!!! Sounds good and certainly works well with the remap in that it helps reduce black smoke under full load due to a larger and quicker flowing quantity of cold air.
