T4 Post Icon Bought a pair of 16" steels, but...

They are ET50s.

Are they not suitable to use on a van? The ones Colese sells are ET55.

I'd say they'll be fine, just check brake clearance etc. 5 mm in comparison is nothing really .

It means they'll stick out 5mm more than et55 if the rim widths are the same. Like I said nothing to worry about

Ahh, I see. So maybe put the ET50s on the rear and some ET55 on the front?

Don't really know what ET refers to
