Hi beejay, I understand what your saying but its the rails that make the difference.
The tyres on mine are 195R14C8PR LT with a profile of 5". Most vans here use light truck tyres for the weight. Diam 13".( Pic 1)
The bearers that the floor and frame are mounted to are on 4" rails ( Pic 2,3 )
Having 6" rails, which is an option when you get one built, you have lifted the van and corner steadies 2",so now they don't hit the ground and by going to 15" rims and tyres to suit, they fill the guards. ( Pic 4,5 )
