Hi, Have a Black T5 and though it came with Alloys I prefer Steel... The look I'm going for is retro Black rims, chrome nuts with centre VW boss but most importantly the Chrome Rim inserts as this!
I've been looking for a set suitable and though they still make them in the States for Ford Trucks have not come aross any over in England.... Any idea where I could find a set for my T5 rims?

Any tips or pointers, ideas or method very much appreciated indeedy

Old School as on the Lotus Elan and Lotus Cortina pre 70's

Thankee :cool:

I'm a big fan of steelies, loving this thread guys. You've inspired me to get my standard 15" wheels from my 1992 T4 refurbed.

Anyone know of a shot blasting company in Wrexham/border area that could do the job for a fair price?

Cheers

Hi DubFans

I brought some 16" steels from a T4, and plan to fit them to my MK5 Golf 2.0 TDi

I want to get them 'BANDED' but unsure of the 'MAXIMUM' Width i can have on them, WITHOUT altering the arches!!?? :confused::confused:

I think they are 7J standard

If anybody knows, could you get in touch soon as possible :D

Cheers T::)

loving them, that is what i want to do, but mine have been outside and gone well rusty and
am unable to sort them, so am on look out for some that dont need work,
this i may have some, if i do, i will only be doing a basic paint job, not as good as yours
but will post when done, be a couple of weeks mind. I: dawn
See if there is a powder coating firm near you ,there are a couple near us and they seem to be doing a roaring trade painting alloys and steelies. Sandblasted painted and laquered -£35 each ,think the steels are cheaper.
Guy near me had some on display ,gold,crimson,red,black ,silver and mirror finish-the mirror looked like chrome ,really nice .
He says always lacquer them as the paint is to soft for wheel wear.
