may not fit due to your caliper size on your t5...sold a set of 16inch borbet bs a while ago and when we fitted them never went over the brake calipers..

Not fit for purpose.

T4's are designed to have wheels with an ET of approx 40-45.
T5's are designed to have wheels with an ET of approx 50

5X120 and ET15 and then modified to fit a vehicle they are not designed for.

Never mind the tyres not being weight rated for a T4 or a T5 and the fact the alloys are designed for a car...not a commercial vehicle.

Each to their own of course but I'm glad I don't have children who may get run over by a van running car wheels and tyres.....

garbage....

T4's are designed to have wheels with an ET of approx 40-45...t4 steels are et55..there where also loads of factory option alloys with et35,so that basicaly puts your info out the door....

why can a 9j et15 wheel not be run with a load rated tyre?...easily found in 99w if you wanted to run that high..

why would only your children get run over?...would the under weighted,small car alloy only fit over a child not a adult...

sorry to make light of your worries,but come on mate there are thousands of vans out there running these types of alloy...please go away and find me all these people who are dying on are roads...
