FYI - I inspected my 1960
Avion T20's & 1988 VW Vanagon CamperGL "Westfalia" Maxxis tires, & these are the specs & place of manufacture for them below:
1960 Avion T20:
Maxxis M8008 ST225/75R15-D 8PR speed rated for 65 mph, load rated for 2540#@ max. 65 psi, DOT date coded for late 2011 (installed July 2012) & Made in Thailand - No sidewall nor tread cracks, No Bubbles nor visible defects, nominal tread wear (with gauge still at nearly new depth) - after 4 years & under 16,000 miles.
The Avion is single axle & was rated dry/empty/without options at 2680 lbs & 285 lbs. HW, but as currently set-up/restored/wet/loaded has a 542 lb. HW & is about 3000-3500 lbs (no max. GTWR was listed back then, but I'd assume 4500 lbs, but have no idea where you'd put all that to get to 4500!)
1988 VW Vanagon CamperGL "Westfalia":
Maxxis UE-168 LT 205/70R14C 8PR 100/102Q (load index 100 = 1764 lbs & 102 = 1874 lbs., speed rating Q = 99 mph), rated for 1874 lbs @ max. 54 psi (IIRC the 100 = 1764 is for 35 psi), DOT date coded for Dec 2013 (installed March 2015) & Made in Taiwan - No sidewall nor tread cracks, No Bubbles nor visible defects, nominal tread wear (with gauge still at nearly new depth) - after 1.5 years & under 8,000 miles.
-synchro VW Vanagon CamperGL Westfalia (full camper version) was rated at 5160 lbs GVWR, & oddly enough rated to tow 2200 lbs & 220 lbs. HW out of a wheezy 4-banger which can barely do 0-60 in 20 minutes!
Note that 14" tire sizes for classic cars are getting harder to find, & especially so for an LT rated for the needs of our VW Vanagon based full camper, & this exceeds the 98 load index from the factory Michelins which are NLA.
And before you newer AS folks get your noses out of joint about why info about an old VW Van is being posted here -
1.) It is a Class B Van based RV with California HCD certification, which makes it & all trailers/RVs eligible for 10 year "RV/Mobile Home financing" - just as are the AS MBZ based units today;
2.) With the very low production numbers of the full camper pop-top Westfalias, they are now very collectable - as are vintage AS's etc. - & the Splitty era earliest Westy's are getting in the $150-200,000+ range, while the middle Bay Window era Westy's are in the $100,000s range, & the later Vanagon era are in the high 5-figure range now, with some of the 4WD Synchro's passing $100k (ours is 2WD);
3.) Therefore, in it's fully restored state I expect it to be valued/appraised at $50,000 -$75,000+, which you can see at the GoWesty.com website under their recent sales for restored Westfalia full campers.
So our little one owner restored Westy is certainly in the same league by value & collectablilty, as are any of your vintage or newer AS's, & certainly deserves mention here on the stock size LT tires available for them, since there are other members out there with Westies!
