Passat Alloys should fit your T4.



I bought a nice set of 16" Audi Alloys for my Caravelle.



In the end, after much deliberation I decided not to fit them due to the Load Rating and knowing my luck I would get caught out.



Sold them to a man with an Audi A4 estate and he was very happy with them.




Ended up sticking with the trusty steel rims but may take the plunge and buy some Load rated ones soon.




Lots of T4 owners fit alloys which don't meet the load rating and never have a problem.




The choice and the risk is there for the taking.




Good Luck.
