Thread: 19" Wheels on 3.0 V6 Diesel

    Default 19" Wheels on 3.0 V6 Diesel

    .... It has been suggested (according to TIS Tyre Pressure Warning) that 19" wheels cannot be fitted to the 3.0 V6 Diesel due to exceeding the 'heavy load' limit on the 19" tyre sidewall...

    Can anyone confirm this ??

    Dont know if this is any use, but just gone to VX site and tried to configer a car, it will allow me to have an sri with the 3.0 but not the sri xp. So as the xp comes with 19's then I think that you might be right. Isnt the GSI about the same axle weight as well?

    Yep VX def wont let you spec the 19"s with the 3.0V6. I tried cause I was gonna have that motor so I ended up getting the 1.9

    Oh the price of bling

    Might be worth checking with the tyre manfacturers to see what the safe load limit is on their heavy load tyres.

    I've heard the same thing. I'm pretty sure that i've read in the brochure that it states something about 19's not being available on the 3.0 diesel due to tax bands etc.

    My 2.2 direct has factory fitted 19s. I had the misfortune to discover that this does indeed push it into the next tax band. Even if I took them off, I wouldn't be able to reduce the tax.

    I would think that this is the likely reason.

    I'm sure tax banding is likely to be the case to some extent. But it has been suggested that 19" on a 3.0 V6 CDTI is not suitable due to exceeding the 'extra load' requirements.

    So it has been suggested that its a technical limitation, not financial.

    I would be very interested to get to the bottom of this one..

    ... can anyone check on TIS ??

    I knew i'd read something about the Tax and emissions. Could be the 'technical' reason though
