Well. i want some bigger steel wheels for my T4. currently on standard 15's.

Do any 17'' steels from other cars/vans fit?

I know 16'' vito steels and other vw 16'' fit.

To fit the T5 17s you need 112 - 120 adapters, have a word with colse as I think he had a set for sale, or you can get the hubs re-drilled not cheap but will allow for the wheels to be banded.

As said, the T5`s will only work with adapters, forget all about mentioned bolts
HR do them & I am told to highlight COLESE as he could help U too.
Personally I thing it would look cool as penguin pee

Wobbles are perfectly safe don't listen to scare mongerers but wont fit with those and as I said it is possible to get hubs re-drilled (not wheels) but it is costly.

He could also change the hubs overall if that is the case I:
Many Golfs do that to reduce the ET-fight & loose the adapter. Fair call:ILU:

So it looks like adapters then. Are pricey though.

Said about changing hubs. Would t5 discs fit on t4 hubs?
and if they are bigger, couldn't they be turned down to fit inside calipers?

Sorry about all the questions, dont know much about the differences.

Andy, foget the hub. I threw that into the discussion not so much for U.
Once U start fabricating U get in deep as that part is custom & one day will need replacement:)

Have U got a ball park figure for the job DANTRO?

Golfs are a different story. I don`t have the T4 measurements with me to compare T5 Parts etc
