T4 Post Icon new wheels ...what have i done

just bought these, thought i could spray them up or get powder coated but im wondering will they fit my ex AA t4, at first i thought they would as they are from a caravelle but being new to all this i dont honestly have a clue if they will fit straight on or not, i paid £100 do you think i was ripped off, any advice would be lovely cheers J




Welcome to my auction for a set of four very rare Genuine VW Multivan T4 alloy wheels with tyres. All four alloy wheels could do with painting as the lacquer has peeled. The wheels came from a low mileage Multivan and are straight and true. They have no kerb damage and could be repainted/colour coded relatively easily. These wheels could also fit a T25 Transporter.
The wheel dimensions are: 15" diameter 6.5J width and a offset of et40.
They are also fitted with road legal tyres that have approx 3mm tread left and are 205/65/15 in size.

I've got those on my '94 Caravelle. The previous owner painted them black and so far *every* person who's seen our 'Velle for the first time has said:

"Are those steel wheels? Oh no, alloys... Ah..."

So there'll fit, but don't paint them black!

Yep, they'll fit .

Someone on here refurbed a set of them a while back and they looked fantastic, black, grey and red or something like that.
Someone will hopefully remember and post a linky.

As Alan said, they'll fit - I had these on my '93 Westie. They were lacquered alloy on the silver face parts, and satin black. They'll look retro-cool when tidied up - they need to be two-tone for the design to stand out (not all black as the other guy pointed out!)

Nice one bud.

£100 is a bargain... they are cool...

Iím certain that early caravelle alloys will become sough after, in years to come by the VW T4 purists.

When you got some spare cash, you can upgrade the tyres to 215/65 15...

Here's the thread with the beautifully refurbed ones...

Makes me want to do something with mine, although with such an insipid colour of van colour would work?!

Look forward to seeing how yours turn out jdog.
