hopefully more useful info...:D

the standard T4 steel wheel bolts i used were long enough to cater for a 5mm wheel spacer and get 8 full turns with my 10mm rear hubcentric spacers A: ..am not sure if they come in different lengths though :* could someone advise me on that please :ILU: mine had approx 35mm of thread :)

the merc center caps fitted straight on :D

if anyone is ever looking for Wheel Bolt 14x1.5 Metric Thread Radius Seat - 19mm Head - 43mm Long, think Si C said they were like rocking horse poop..well i did eventually find these but thankfully didnt need them I:

Evening all!!

Not sure if this has been asked before but are there any steels that can be banded for a t5 that are 18"-20" that any of you guys know about? Or....Can you take a stock t5 steel and band it with larger bands to make it a larger rim? If so, any ideas on costs and who can do it??

not sure about the first bit, but you can band any steel to any width... and can make it as wide as you like :D but it its all down to the ET !! the higher the ET to start with, the bigger the band you can go to..but do remember you may still want to open your sliding door and be legal ;)

Why not just get the wheels made for you, I've seen a few companies on the net who manufacture one off wheels. Maybe the trader "rarerims" could accommodate or recommend someone. All depends on the wonga though I suppose I:
