Hi I am looking at banding original 16s on my t5 for a winter.wheel, I have a couple of questions;
1. How much would we be talking about for the full set (wider at rear)
2. How much can the standard tyres be stretched or is it best just to replace?
3. Do you offer an exchange, my standards for yours?
4. Have you got and pics of these fitted to a van, (never seen 16s just the 17s)

Sorry if any of these are nubie questions, I'm new to all this! Cheers.

They look very good! Could you post a pic of the join (where band is welded in)

I only ask because I have had about 6 sets of banded steels in the past from 3 different suppliers and the finish is worlds apart

In the past i've used bandedsteels.com, James Potts and colese they all charge similar money but the finish is totally different,

Colese is the only person IMO who sends a finished product i.e a wheel that is ready for paint/powder coat without any work needed to prep the rim before hand

Hi yes I can do a part x your rims for these.
I don't have any pics fitted to a van unfortunately.
I will post a pic of where the join in the morning.
The join is flawless you cannot see any sign of a join.
I do not use any filler of any kind it's all steel.
You could utilise the original tyres up to a certain width and may well be beneficial to do so as it will give a slight stretch
And give you more tyre/arch clearance although I wouldn't reccomend a huge stretch as I feel it unsafe to do so.
I will post more pics ASAP

Sorry for the late response cheers guys
