Just had time to have a look at the Delica after having it delivered.  I have a 94 L400 3L V6 LBW and. I have a few questions:

Lifted or not?
I spoke to Adrian Flux about whether the Delica is lifted as to me it looks high but this is my first Delica so they suggested I put a post on here for your opinion... from centre of hub to wheel arch it's 55cm, it's running on 265/70/16 tyres

Timing belt
It's done 186182km and had it's timing belt changed at 117810km back in 2006.. should I replace asap or is it okay for the time being?

Finally last question...

What tyre pressure would you recommend


Thanks in advance

Re a lifted Deli. No I don't think it is. †A 54cm - 55cm measurement for the hub centre to wheelarch is normal.

As for the tyres; This comparison chart will show you the differences to the standard Factory fitted tyre (225 80 R15)

Most will run the 235 75 R15, which is just about the closest to the factory fit.
A 30"x9.50 R15 is another normal fit, in Imperial. which is A lot the largest that will fit without modifying the wheels arches and requiring a wider wheel arch modification.
Then you have those who want to go higher and wider who go to 31 x 10.5 R15.

Then there is what you have on - 265 x70 R16's. †Being on a 16" wheel they seem larger, but as you will note the overall circumfrence is small than the 31's on the 15" rim.

The tyre won't do as many revolutions to the mile as as the 225 R15 or the 30 x950's; but the kicker is that your speedo will read 57mph when you are actually doing 60; so when the reading is 60/61 mph you will be arounf 65mph. You need to ensure it is calibrated to that wheel size, so you don't get a speeding ticket.

In case your wondering! †- I use 30" x9.50's.

I would get the timing belt done. 14 years for a belt is quite a long time regardless of mileage
