Scamp Tyres

Post  Minivanman on Tue Sep 24, 2013 7:46 pm

Was wanting to fit some kind of Nobbly or chunky tyres to the Mk3, preferably in 12in, been offered a set of 155 x 12 M&s ,but when I said they were for a Scamp the seller recons there aint enough clearance for this tyre at the rear, so what can I fit without fouling on the rear swinging arm mounting bracket?

My Mk3 has 13" Moke swinging arms and I just use normal road tyres on the back when I am off-roading.

The power is from the front and the back end doesn't slide too much.

Mind you with my foot to the floor and hanging on for dear life, I'm oblivious to whats happening at the rear Twisted Evil


Have a look at some of the old off roading pics and see what they are running

You'll be fine with 155 x12 tyres on the rear. I used to run 155 x 12 Colway Rally Plus tyres on the back of a MK2 with no clearing issues
