Road use you can get away with it but for IVA it is a no no.

you should not be able to see the tread of the tyre when viewed from directly above the wheel

This is currently correct for general use with the exception of iva requirement in which case no tyre should be visible from directly above. This includes any sidewall bulge. Strange is iva.... different concepts adhered to rather than "an across the board agreement". Especially odd when VOSA direct both mots and iva examinations.  ;D ;D

Luckily for us and the hot rod folk mudguards and wings do not come under the MOT regulation on class 4 cars apart from the being included by the dangerous to other road users under faulty body work  section.  However the 40 year exemption makes most buggies mot free these days but a tester may put it down as an observation on a test. Luckily we have independent tests not government MOT stations.

Hey I'm hoping a 6 rib bus box linked to a Subaru power plant will handle the rear rims and rubber? I hope I've done my homework correctly? Or have I got it wrong? 😡

6 Rib Van box is the best VW box you can have with a Scooby lump - you just need to shoehorn it into a Buggy though as its larger than a Bug box

Just wondering, have looked into what manufacturers actually make 17x15 wheels and also what manufacturers make 20 inch wide 17 inch dia tyres?  Or did you mean 17 inch wide 15 inch diameter wheels ?

I had 15" x 17" diameter on the rear of my Porsche, and 335x35x17 is such a common supercar size tyre that you can even pick them up off the shelf in some of the Costco places - don`t expect change from around 500 a piece though

If he wants 20" of rubber surely it would be the other way round  15" dia x 17 wide ??????????????  Weld wheels do a 15 x 16 alloy are you  sitting down  $ 1300 each plus postage & tax and a very long wait.

15" wide gives you a decent width of rubber

Hey up I was looking to get the rims made http://www.imagewheels.co.uk and the rubber from
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/MTT-6641/ it's all in my head atm and on the back of fag packets....but it's a long term project. I know what I'd like, but know it doesn't always work out like that
