When I bought our 98 GC, I did three things: I put stainless steel,teflon lined brake lines on it , threw away the oe pads and shoes to be replaced with semi-metallic parts and I bought 4 new tires, 225/60/16 size.
I had aluminum rims to start with but found several sets at a local wrecker for less than $200, clean and straight.
The brakes on these vans need all the help they can get and the stainless lines with the semi-met pads and shoes eliminated all soft pedal issues, the tires made it safer to drive and felt much more "planted " than the OE 215/65/16 pos tires.
Currently over 350 K and no issues.
