T4 Post Icon Wheel Load Rating

Hi everyone. I have purchased a set of VW alloys to replace the original steel wheels on my 1992 1.9 petrol T4.

I had to get some PCD adaptors and slightly shorter wheel bolts, and all is now good. Apart from a niggling feeling that the wheels aren't suitable for the T4 in relation to their load rating.

I have searched the web for an answer to the load rating for the wheels but cannot find anything. There are obviously a lot of markings on the inside of the wheels - see photos - and I wondered if anyone with a bit more wheel-knowledge than me could shed any light on whether these wheels would be suitable/safe on the T4.

Any info greatly received. Thanks in advance.

Andy

Most definitely not suitable ! They’re Volkswagen Reggae wheels. For Golf, polo, fox etc.

Thanks! Glad I trusted my gut feeling. Shame I bought the PCD adaptors first though.

IF it needs an adapter, it's 99% NOT suitable.
