Well here they are... BBS Le Mans 8jx18 on the front, 9jx18 on the rear, both ET 45 with 235x40x18 tyres.

Had to add 6mm spacers to the rear making them ET39 due to no clearance on the rear brakes.

Will say that I tried 10mm spacers which were fine but then were too close to the wheel arch and the sliding doors hit the rims. 6mm was just right T:

looking good mate

do like a bit of dish;)

so you have no issues with your sliding door then on 9j et39

not even the rubber bung?
Rubber bung in sliding door does touch the tyre,only just, but only the part nearest the back it pops over it, so to speak. The 10mm spacers made the rubber hit the back tyre straight away. Although the 10mm's were prob a bit more than that as they were painted rather than the 6mm's which were plated...

Happy with how the van sits on them though...

looking good, I was putting these on our B6 Passat but reckon they suit the T4 better. Surprise to hear ET45's foul the brakes? Are you running stock calipers?

Looks great mate! Tried mine today with a 5 and a 10mm spacer. The 5mm was ok but a bit too snug so 6-7mm looks about rightT:

Did you go hubcentric spacers and longer bolts or just normal ones?
Having mine made next week so ill get some pics up tooA:

Yep, on the spacers original bolts were fine, got at least 7 turns on them, 5 or less and I would have got longer ones. :ILU:
