      I'm a little new here so bare with me....
      I've been watching from the side lines for a while, just cruising around.
      Chatted to Eric a little here and there, found this place to be pretty cool and some interesting stuff going on, so I thought I may as well pipe up!
      So down to this topic.....
      I'd love to see some big rims on busses....See loads on splittys, but T3's you don't see much!
      I have some images I have found over the last year or so, but have no idea as to how to get them into this forum....this ones a little different than what I'm use to....
      Anyone help with a suggestion....Please be nice!
      Later

      As I understand it, this is a stock Carat suspension (the van was a Carat) with 16" wheels. They are Ronals, and I believe it was either R9 or R5 (can't remember now), which they don't make anymore.

      Go to German eBay ( http://www.ebay.de ) and search for "T3"

      Whadya think? The wheels are from unknown, foundem in the junkyard, they just happen to fit. They are 15"s, with 215/75 R 15 rubber. A lot of tire, but thought I'd give it a try. My next venture will be a set of 16" AMG wheels from a friend of mine. I plan on 225/50's on the rear and 205/55's on the front.
