good luck got your work cut out there...T:Well I'm making a start on my two sets of steels, nothing fancy just don't like the rusted look.
My plan is to sand off rust with wire brush on drill, clean then, primer, paint and lacquer.
Sanded down 1.5 of my 10 wheels, so a fair bit to go yet!
Personally I would use genuine VW T:A fair bit of arch work etc to do next - a local guy has a t2 reckons it might be easier to get new wings (new or better condition) as they are bolt on - anyone have any recommendations for after market ones like VW heritage t4rus etc?
better then before I am sureSo after speaking with a friend who used hammerite, we decided it might cover the pitting a bit more than the spraying had, so here they are after spraying and brushed on hammerite again not great but will do for a time before I can get some better condition wheels
Hammerite is REALLY bad paint.....unless you "bake it" on.Thanks for the replies, yeah I would say so I have another 5 wheels to have a go with so perhaps I could try spraying the Hammerite on next time! This is what they used to look like!
Is that Hammerite sprayed on or brushed?So after speaking with a friend who used hammerite, we decided it might cover the pitting a bit more than the spraying had, so here they are after spraying and brushed on hammerite again not great but will do for a time before I can get some better condition wheels
Not with such a high ET. The tyres would be too narrow on the axles.Hi Guys, anyone know if the 6.5 x 16 vito steels fit in the et60 version?
Do you mean that the 7.5j et 51 fits? If that's the case then 6.5j et60 should too, as the inner rim is closer to the suspension on the 7.5 wheel (only 3.7mm, but still closer)Not with such a high ET. The tyres would be too narrow on the axles.
But they’re popular for banding because there’s so much room to make them wider.
There’s a 16x7.5 et51 that works well. And the et is within VW’s spec of et55-45
If they were black they are car wheels, will they be up to the job; or are those sort of things not so important in Finland :*:*:*Got brand new black vw 16x7J steelies for my van! A: Then I had them powder coated silver. Really like the original look... Sorry about the dark photo.
sorry for late reply mate and thanks they should do for winter wheels.They look brill, how did you do the blue detailing, and can I ask did you use a primer for plastic on the center caps, if so what brand?
