I tried sooooooooooooooo hard to get my dad to put LTs on his eurovan camper but he refused. Something about 'ride quality'. Old people. Sheesh.

Not sure about rubbing. I have 225/70/16" BFG TA KOs on my van and it doesnt rub. although its on a syncro with a 2" lift and audi wheels..

What's the width of the wheels that these tires would be going on?

I am looking for new tires for the quantum, but I didn't think they made any all terrain type tires that would fit my snowflakes because of the width.

stock vanagon wheels are 5,5 or 6" wide. at least the ones in this country..

here are some 195/75R14 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=All-Terrain+T%2FA+KO&sidewall=Raised%20White%20Letters&partnum=975R4ARAKORWL&tab=Sizes

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but since my wheels are only six inches wide the tires in this link would be way beefy on such narrow wheels and have a negative impact on snow performance.

so they're *8 inches wide?

Okay so vanagons come with a taller sidewall stock.
