15" mags/rims options
I would like to put 15" mags or steel rims on my Syncro, but need some advice please.

Are there any benefits or downsides to either?

What are the options for brand new ones, i.e. makes and models? The local tyre guys can't seem to help...

Thanks guys.

If they were still available I would fit a set of Hockenheim Rs. I think they would suit a Syncro

1989 2.1 SYNCRO
2011 CB1000R

Stuart said "They say in "Namibia" the only problem with a syncro is when it does get stuck nothing else can get there to tow it out"

Thanks Stuart.

I'm going to organise the tyres in the mean time. Are 215/75 15" the largest tyres that will fit onto a "standard" Syncro?

215r15 or also called 215/80 r15 also fit, easier to get and cheaper than 75 profile,

Up to 235/75/15 should fit without a problem. Just check the ET number of the rim. Should be around ET30.
