    you do get rubbing with the VXR 18s and towing a van, we did. I ground loads off the rear doors but got fed up and put the 17s back on

    whats the max loaded weight of that van? We wanted to buy a twin axle van a while back and no dealers would sell us one as it would be overweight for a GSi
