I have a Swift Kontiki  2002 based on Fiat Ducato 2.8 engine , i am not sure if the tyres are the original sizes they are 215 x 75 x 16, there is a whole lot if different info out there on the net !!!
Anyone running these sizes or something different  ?
They were on it when we bought it but will be fitting winter tyres shortly obviously this size fits just a belts'n' braces kind of thing

i believe my CIRiviera May have used the same size, it was 7 years ago and my memory is rather dim. I am confident they were not 75 section. Looking it up online and  tyre company hit also shows the same. Used on a 7j wheel.

I’d imagine the 60% would be needed to maintain a similar rolling radius to the 215/70 15 tyre. That’s getting a bit technical and a bit of maths would confirm it

I don't know in the UK but in Italy the veihcle registration document includes type of allowed tires
(typically two different, seldom three).
Data include measure (e.g. 225/70/R16, R being for radial-ply), weight index code (e.g. 91) and maximum speed (e.g. H).

For instance my motorhome regisitration document reports:
Tires:
225/65 R16C (112/110) Q
Alternative
205/75 R16C (110/108) R
