Hi all,

I'm after some alloys for my T5 but unsure on the size as I use my van primarily for work. I carry round a fair amount of tools and sometimes air conditioning units and when theres a couple in I probably have about 300-400kg on board.

i was thinking 17 or 18 inch, I dont want my teeth to shake out.

Would appreciate any advice, I like these

Got 20 inch on mine from Midland wheels near Rugby.

My advice is make sure both the wheels and tyres match the weight of your van ie T28 = 2.8tonne T30 = 3.0tonne .
I initally was going to put 18inch on mine but now I have 20 inch think 18 would perhaps have looked a bit small and I must say I dont think the ride is too hard however tyre noise has increased a little.

Hope this helps

YBW
