When I put my 1973 VW 1600 Type 2 Westfalia Continental motor-caravan back on the road, I shall probably be opting for either 205/65 R16C or 215/65 R16C commercial-van tyres on 7 x 16 inch Mercedes C- ...

There is a 100 mm diameter, VDO Cockpit International, dual-scale 0~85 mph & 0~130 km/h speedometer, that would be much more appropriate for the 1968~79 VW Type 2s and VDO Cockpit 0~6000 rpm tacho ...

You can get an extra load tire in a 215/16R16 though. Vredestein makes one. The heavily siped threads on the Vredesteins would likely give good traction in most conditions as well.

I would not wish to use 17 inch wheels on my 1973 VW "1600" Type 2

A fair amount of the suspension travel on a bus is in the sidewall of the stock tyre.
