The wheels in the tenth picture down 7Jx16 ET49 Factory and Dealer Fit Options (BBS).

I had these on my Caravelle when I got it but they are 15" wheels. I know this cause I've decided to get some AT tyres for them and rather than dig them out the back of the garage to see what size they were I looked on here! Just went to fit 16" AT tyres to them and then realised they are 15" wheels! My own fault for not checking myself I know! Absolutely raging, my weekend plans ruined now and have to do some diy instead of playing with the van all weekend! I:

I've just picked up a set of these. Going from standard steels. Could I use the bolts that I'm using with my steel rims?

Cheers in advance.

Hiya, sorry, slightly tardy to the party... anyone still on here?

Just wondering which wheels were standard on my 1995 Caravelle (2.5D)... it's got some big Audi alloys on it and I want to get it back to the original (and make the ride alot better!).

Great detail on the pics above but I'm finding them slightly confusing being a newbie!

Cheers

Yours would have the second picture from the top, the 6j et44 steels, but with hubcaps rather than the small centre caps. They're referred to as Early square hole steels, the 15 inch type.

ok got a question. We have a 2003 t4 2.5 diesel. It has been lowered at some stage. We have 4 alloys on it 295 60 r16 purchased from just campers. We need a steel spare wheel to go in the holder underneath. But cant seem to get a straight answer from anyone as to what type of steel wheel is suitable to get and that is safe to put on without other tyres in case of an emergency. Please help! by telling us what size is safe as it seems we cant get a steel wheel in 295/60/16. thank you.

295/60/16......are you sure?
They are FAT tyres!

All you can do is find the rolling circumference of the tyres, and see if a 185/65 - 15 is close enough as a spare (That's what I have with my 245/45 - 17 wheels.....5% difference, so safe as a spare.

Hi I have some Dotz alloys which look a little oversized on my R reg 1.9 ft T4, whilst the standard steels may be too thin are there other size steels a bit wider that factory size, any one want some really good condition Dots alloys?
