I didn't know merc wheels fitted. Now I know why my Bus gives my SL Merc a dirty look when they pass on driveway. Its eyeing up its 18" AMG staggered Alloys.

Not sure if 285/35 rears will fit under the arches though.

T4 Post Icon Re: Only Mercedes rims in here!

Hi, can anyone tell me the load rating of the 17'' AMG Mono-block wheels?
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1708653855...ht_1642wt_1304

I love them and I'm ready to buy but I want to make sure they will take the weight of my conversion (which isn't crazy)

finally, i am a novice when it comes to wheels..
can anyone comment on fitting guidance - tyre size, special requirements ? all information very much welcome

I cannot wait to get these on my T4

cheers

hello matey , i'm no expert on these rims , but i've heard afew people saying you have to get the stud holes drilled out a couple of mill's from 14 to 16 mm or something like , as the vw bolts are alot thicker for the weight etc. also sometimes the wheel center's sometimes need machining out to fit the vw t4 hubs, but not sure on your exact wheels so try n get some sizes / hole diameters off the seller n match up to your existing wheels..
hope this helps as its alot of money mate...

Hi
Load of wheels not sure about
The stud holes may need drilling but may not
They need to be just over 14mm as vag studs are 14mm
Spiggot rings can be bought for the centre bore as merc rims have a bigger centre bore than vag vehicles on most wheels except some new vag vehicles
Spiggot rings its 66.6 to 57.1mm
Hope this helps
