Anyone know off too if their head of I can throw a set 235 75 15s on a stock 97 mpv? Auto non air rear suspension if that makes any difference.
Thanks ahead.

NO if 2wd
tried, been there, they hit the bottom of the shock tower
you can get an expensive adapter plate for big bucks

Good luck in the contest

Thanks for the quick reply. 4X4 is a go though? Shock tower is diffo on the 4x4s?
Is the adapter plate a wheel backspacer or is a plate that raises the clearance between tire too and shock tower?
Cheers.

if you have the 4x4, then you can get them. i have these on my mpv right now:

Click here for the ebay link

On my first mpv a few years back, i purchased 4 235/70/15s and never had any rub. I got these 225/75/15s now and still no rub anywhere. I'm sure you can go 235/75/15 easy, provided you have a 4x4 mp. i also noticed that the 75 measurement gives an almost dead accurate readout of the speedometer. checked it with my gps.

I appreciate the reply. I already picked them up as it was way too good of a deal to pass up. I could just tell them if they didn't fit. And probably make a couple dollars off at 2. I also did some searching on the forums and found it somebody said it should not be an issue as long as you have a4 by 4. Same as you said I'll post an update once I'm mount of them. Sorry for all the weird spelling and grammar in this thing auto correct on voice to text is horrible. Cheers everyone
