Hi

I'm a newbie to T5's... I haven't even picked my new caravelle up yet and I'm already looking at swapping wheels!

Basically, I'd like a set of 18" wheels on the van for when I lower it. I've found a set of touareg wheels from a phase 1 car. I'm pretty certain these don't need any faffing about and just fit straight on, is that right?

Also, I have been offered a set of 18" standard wheels off an Insignia. They are 5x20 PCD. ETC 42 (and 8J 18h2, whatever that means!). Am I right in thinking these fit straight on too?

Thanks, I know there are thousands of no knowledge plums like me on here asking things like this!!

(almost) straight fits are basically anything off a Range Rover (will need different bolts and spigot rings as a minimum) and BMW X5 etc. Problem with a lot of stuff, like the Insignia, is that they're designed for a car, not a heavy van so won't be load rated enough.

Bugger me.
Range rover alloys are expensive!!

Do you reckon that T5.1 sportline wheels will fit my T5 then?
I essentially want some slightly larger wheels without any real messing about!!
