    I own a 53 plate Peugeot Dispatch which has 14 inch wheels but my last van, a 99 Peugeot Expert had 15 inch.

    The Dispatch has a dw8 which is slow on long runs, would it not be better with the bigger wheels, larger rolling radius and all, i’m confused , thanks for your expertise on this.

    Hi Ian. The wheel diameter needs to be considered alongside the tyre profile. It is possible that your current van has smaller wheels with taller tyres, so that the rolling height is actually the same.

    For more information on wheel sizes, have a read of this article on alloy wheels on our sister site The Car Expert (the bit on sizing applies equally to steel wheels).
