A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
Kirk, I have Bridgestone AT's on mine and I love them although they are "C" rated. Yes there is a bit of road noise but your in a VW bus with the windows down anyway!!!
I am actually seriously think about the BFG's since they are "D" rated. If I can swing it I am trying to get them before the Classic.
Sorry, I meant to post these. They come in a 14.
Here's a thread from TheSamba with a picture of them on if you scroll down:
On tirerack.com they show a 195/75/14 size that will work. I think they are recently re-available. Ive always liked them on my trucks/suvs, so I may give them a shot on the bus.
Thanks for the info so far.
Hey there Kirk,
I have them on my '74. They are great tires.
Our options are either the BF Goodrich's or Yokohama's here in Canada (we have some Chinese options, but the quality is questionable). I have had both on my van, andprefer the BF Goodrich's over the Yokohama's.
The Yokohama's just don't grip as nicely, and the tread pattern looks a little wimpy to the BF's.
The Yokohama's are quieter, and smoother on highway's - but frankly, in my van, the road noise is the least of the sounds I hear (whether it be wind noise, the stereo playing, or sound of a flat four working overtime).
Hope this helps,
