I love the banded steels look, but I guess the problem is that people are worried about the structural integrity of cut'n'shut wheels on a potentially heavy laden vehicle and, when you cost up getting them done properly from a reputable company, you can get a set of decent alloys for the same money... :ILU:

Exactly... I am torn between a set of nice alloys or a set of banded steels that look like Paulm's...

Speaking of which, what size are your wheels Paul? Are they standard T4 15"?

Did they fit on ok or did you need to make any modifications? how much did they set you back?
only mod needed was to space my sliding door... and you can buy the wedges/spaces on here now... and cost wise the tyres were £200, my wheels cost me £120 new, and £330 for banding T:...so all in £650ish :ILU:....which is way less than buying new wheels and tyres that everyone else has I: ;)

Hmmm... so I just need to find a cheap set of steel wheels...already been multi-tasking and checking fleabay but nothing jumping out at me. Thing is, I dont really want to spend £100 on a set of steels!! these days I would have thought people are vitually giving them away!!
