I will leave others to advise on bolts and best source. Just wanted to make sure you didn't go and buy the cheap universal spacers in case no one answered in time!

I did see what looked like a quality set of spacers and bolts on eBay sold by Demon Tweeks, so a decent supplier, but that would work out at around £80 for 4 wheels and there may be equally good options for less cash?

PS - those wheels look brilliant :)

They're Audi A3 Sport alloys and ET56...hence the need for spacers.
Yes hubcentric ones are the way to go.

However...are you aware those wheels are only load rated to 600kgs each so 'may' not be upto the job on your van...the same could apply to the tyres as well depending on their size and load rating ?
Check the axle weights on the bonnet landing panel to make sure.

Yes 600kgs is quite low. We would recommend a minimum weight loading of 768kg for the T4.
