that's for a 7.5j mate

spent some serious time searching and i believe this wheel is the widest steel wheel commercially available in this country that will bolt straight on to a t4

you can of course go down the american route with wider manufacturers but you will be looking at maybe adaptors and many of them have very low offsets so you could be looking at arch issues. saying that though, there are some suitable alternative wide steels out there... it's just finding them...

there are loads of 17" and 18" steels from america like Dodge and Ford etc for their off-roaders , but they are normally 6.5j - 7.5j. stick a normal tyre on that and it's gonna look like a giant 2cv wheel

audi among others do an 18" space saver. it's only 3.5" wide so you would be looking at going down the banded route. many have done it

got mine from the car dealership. if you go to the commercial side, you will be looking at vito wheels which only come in a max of 6.5j i think and are also around 85 a corner

Hi Mr Woodcraft.

I’m liking your steel merc wheels.


Can I run a question by you.

Do you know if the VW T4 black plastic wheel caps will fit onto your steel merc wheels, using the original VW T4 wheel bolts as fixings.
