slobbo,

...have decoded to go with the same tire, Dynapro ATM rf10 in 225/75/16.

Over here they offer the LT version they list as "10-ply", but I think there's a lighter version as well. Which do you have?

 Anybody considering the effects of added unsprung weight with heavier tyres?

Unsprung weight? Doubt it. I'm amazed that some people still think you can have tyres that will work well on tarmac, in mud, on snow, be quiet, grippy, long lasting, make the van handle well and "look good" what ever that means.
If you want to go mud plugging, get the tyres to do the job and run another set of rims. If you want to pose in country parks, buy what you think looks cool and don't complain when they don't work in the clag.

My tyres are standard size, being a syncro 16", and VW considered the unsprung weight and created the Boge N shock, which mine had a new set of 10 months ago.

This is one of the many advantages of staying with stock in my opinion. Why have a larger tyre?

Changing anything creates a ripple effect.

...have a stock 16" caravelle over here with the stock 195R16 tyres (Uniroyal) and "N" shocks. Over here in the States I don't find a Dynapro ATM anywehre close to that size. What size are yours?

Was asking manalishi.  

From the photo looks like 205 80 R16 104T. You're right that's a stock 16er size. Unfortunately not available here.

The 225 would look better, but not on my rims.

Mine are 205/80/16's, they seem to be just fine.

She came from the Finnish Army with Hakkepelitas. They were a great tyre, but not available here, but OK in the States I believe.
