195/65/R15 is the standard tyre size even for the 1.3.Right folks, where to begin.
I lost my very trusty 05 plate Envoy 1.7 CDTI (Isuzu engine) around 6 weeks ago and have replaced it with a 07 plate Club 1.3 CDTI (ECOTEC engine).
When I went to tax the van, the price on the gov website came up at £275.
The old 1.7CDTI only cost £140.
Can anyone explain why this should be?
Secondly, can anyone tell what the correct size tyres should be for this van as standard?
At present it has 5 stud steel wheels with 195/65/R15 tyres, which I suspect are a little over the top for a non-sportiv 1.3 van.
Thirdly, having had the van for just one day I got a puncture. No problem I thought, just swap it for the spare.
So imagine my misery when I retrieved the spare from the back and found it to be a 4 stud steel wheel with a completely different sized tyre. So now I am on the hunt for the correct steel wheel for this vehicle.
Anyone got one they might be willing to part with? Or can anyone tell me the best place to get one? I wondered if the wheel was something of a standard item which did not differ in size between the Astravan a ordinary Astra estate car or people carrier? I.e. so long it was a 5 stud wheel, it would fit ok?
Finally, the new van has a tinted glass rear window - is this a standard feature on the later Astravans?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
