    Maliit masyado ang wheel well ng Starex vans. Pwede sya maglagay ng 17s but he'll have to match it with 225/45 tires, to thin for a van, imo. Or even 215/50 for that matter kung may scrubbing.

    May nakikita akong madalas sa Mendiola area, lowered Starex van with 17s kaso masyado yatang matigas yung springs, umaalon buong van pag tumatakbo.

    although some claim na mas matipid naman sa gas ang 17's since malaki ang nasasakop niyang area...i dunno.

    pero im quite sure na mas mabilis ang 15's.
    sir glenn:::

    heto po ang aking natutunan sa math.

    the perimeter(distance travelled by the tire per revolution) of a circle(or tire, in this case) is calculated by the formula 2*pi*d/2

    pi=3.1416
    d/2=diameter of the circle divided by 2 or the radius

    now for a 15 inch tire: 2*pi*7.5 = 47.124 inches

    for a 17 inch tire: 2*pi*8.5 = 53.4072 inches

    if the rpm is kept constant, it is very evident that the travel of 17 inch tire is farther than the 15 inch tire.

    pero kung parehas lang tire diameter ikakabit, the rim size cancels out.

    my .02 dollar po ser.

    which makes me think that if you change the overall tire diameter from stock to 17's, your odometer's reading will be off by, say, a foot for every rotation. right?

    math!?ano po iyon!?nakakain ba yun!?!herhehrherh..not my fave subject.

    but yes.based on your calculations, at kung pagaganahin ang common sense, kung pareho ng diameter ang gulong (goma) mismo, the rim size is cancellable...

    pero teka...mali ba sinabi ko?tama naman diba?mas maraming distance= "mas malaking area ang nasasakop niya" diba pareho lanbg po iyon?

    ahihihihi..ikaw kasi hiniritan mo ako ng math nagkagulo tuloy utak ko!!ahrhrharh
