Recently purchased a 2010 16.49HL which has had the axle flipped to below the Springs, but the factory rims and tyres look like "pram" wheels, just too small with a large gap between top of tyres and the body.

Any suggestions or solutions, I assume I'm not the first to think this?

On my 14.44 I replaced the OE wheels with some RoH steel rims and put bigger tyres on, not a biggy. I kept the 15" rim size just went a wider rim and tyre, going up a rim size would have made the rig too high and I would have had to use lower profile tyre.
I measured the distance from inside the rim to the outside of rim then added 20 mm for tyre, measured the room I had from outside of brake drum to chassis rail if new wheel was at least 20mm less it was good......
