Having looked into getting some of these i am left confused :(
I have a 01 t4 with audi alloys and have been told i need the model name of the wheels in order to get the right bolts??
If this is a load of salesman bull then your bolts should fit right?
If they'll fit then i'll deffo take em!

the main difference is the taper, look at the taper on your wheels, if its flat then these should be ok, if its radious then these are not suitable.

Hmmmmm, will check it out on monday when i get the van back from the dealers.
Thnx for simplifying it ;)

no problem, it was hard trying to explain it without being patronising LOL:

and even then I got it wrong, the taper on the bolts are radioused, not flat

Ok so have finally had a look at van.

Il have em!

Im keeping my steelies - just had em fully refurbed with new rubber and TBH I think they look good enough to nick so Im going to get some lock bolts.

The flat taper is the standard fitting for steelies. How long is the thread?

I believe the majority of alloys use a radiused bolt but I may be wrong

Let me know if they have been sold or not... I guess Im 2nd or 3rd dibs?


Errr.... just read the posts properly! Are these radiused then? Im confused!
