Not sure what you mean by 17, 18 or 19 inch tyres, I'm assuming you
meant rims rather than tyres?

20 inch what? 20 inch rims? My current rims are 16 inches diameter,
my tyres are 30 inches diameter, I'm not sure where the numbers you
are quoting fit in.

I've seen some hulking great big tyres put on a landy with Volvo C303
portal axles, that was a mighty beast ;-) The axles added about 4
inches of clearance themselves. A little too much modification for me
