Hello all - I have the following wheels and tyres fitted to my car......

Fronts are 205-50-R15 Nankangs

Rears are 235-50-R15 Nankangs

My car is a low riding road going sand-rail/beach buggy.......I bought the tyres from a bloke restoring a 1970's 911, but he wanted original tyres to finish the car properly ........Michelins I think.......anyway - I desperatley need to know the front and rear toe, camber, castor and tyre pressure settings for these tyres - I'm sure you guys are familiar with these tyre sizes, with the toe setting please state per wheel or for both combined.......fire away - I'm all ears!

cheers

stephen

Shirley whatever the settings are for a 911 they won't be relevant for your car? Have a Google, there seem to be lots of mentions of these tyres on other forums.

hi guys - the buggy is based on a beetle running gear, which has been lowered quite a bit!.......as the tyres are a million miles away from what an original beetle runs, the tyre settings should be more linked to their donor vehicle.......which is the 911.......sorry I dont know the model it came from, all I can say is it should run the early Fuch rims, fronts are 15"x8" wide, rears are 15"x10" wide........surely they are not that far apart from model to model?........just the toe and camber settings will be fine.....anyone????....

IIRC toe in and camber is based on the car's chassis nothing to do with wheels and tyres and pressures are a factor the cars weight etc
