OEM Spec Bus & Vanagon Tire - 195R14

Detailed Description

WARNING! Standard passenger car tires don't meet VW specs for load and inflation capacity, and are UNSAFE for Bus & Vanagon use. See this page for important information on choosing the right tire for your Bus or Vanagon.

For 20 years, Hankook's RA08 earned a reputation as the best Bus and Vanagon tire you could buy. Their new updated RA18 continues that tradition. Like the RA08 before it, the RA18 won top honors in German magazine ProMobil's extensive head-to-head handling and performance tests, beating Continental, Michelin, and other much pricier tires. We offer it in the standard 185R14 size (linked below), and in this slightly larger 195R14 size. This version is about 1/2" taller and 1/3" wider than a stock 185R14 Bus/Vanagon tire. (This will cause a 2.5% variation in speedometer reading, so 61.5 mph will read 60 mph.) It is suitable for stock steel wheels or factory Vanagon alloys. Priced each.

Note: In certain cases the actual shipping cost on tires may exceed the shopping cart calculation due to their size. If that occurs, we will email you for approval before we process your order. Also, store pickups of tires will incur a $4.50 per tire handling fee.
