LostInTransit replied to Campcrazy's topic in <i>Accessories and Modifications</i>I can't speak for the older TC, But I can say that the newer TC has a non-locking fuel fill point which doesn't have a gas cap.. but they do make a locking gas cap for early models. I've actually requested that Ford create a locking fuel plug for our year TC.. no word as of yet on this. FYI: http://fordtransitconnectforum.com/topic/329-fuel-filler-door-sliding-door-stop/
I realize this is an old thread, but.. I wanted to point something out here. In the beginning we wanted the Yokohama Geolandars on our 015 TC XL SWB van.. and our shop foreman informed us that this tire would fit snuggly but the ride quality and handling would suffer. I've since checked the Yokohama site for any updates because I've requested that they redesign a Geolandar type tire for us smaller cars. In fact they did, but the size didn't decrease.. instead it increased. Which is disappointing. lets keep in mind there is a comfort zone which we can't cross because of rubbing and clearance.. that zone stops at 26.1 (unofficial) So I'm under the assumption that a tire that actually measures between 25.7 - 25.9 would be an acceptable and larger option for the TC. (depending on the offset of course) According to boomer43's post (which we haven't heard from and a long while) says he has not seen or heard any rubbing issues with his Bridgestone 225/55/16's.. but again, there isn't any info about what year TC he drives or he's since removed this data. According to Bridgestone and other sites.. the max load rating on these tires is 1477.. or 94 index.. which is less than it should be for the 014-Current TC. But hey what ever floats your boat.. We're option for a large more load rating tire in the future.
