VW T5 16″ ALLOY WHEELS
The alloy wheels we supply are made specifically for the T5. This may sound obvious but most suppliers will simply sell universal wheels which need a spigot and bolt fitting kit, so in the event of a puncture, the wheel nuts will not fit your original steel spare wheel. Ours alloys are from a German manufacturer which are also offered by VW over there parts counter and in there accessory catalogue (but for considerably more than we sell them!). Being made by a European company, they are much better than cheap Chinese alloys, and they are properly load rated for use on a commercial vehicle. What’s more, without the need for spigot rings, they fit straight on to the VW T5 hub and use the original VW bolts. The 16″ alloys we offer also don’t need different tyres, so we can transfer your tyres straight over from your steel wheels.
The great advantage with 16″ alloys over larger wheels is that you retain a higher tyre wall so they are less likely to be damaged whilst parking or or bumping up a kerb. Although the 18″ alloys do look good, tyres on the 16″ wheels often last 3 times as long and are often cheaper to replace. However, 18″ alloys are always popular, so we often keep a stock of 18″ alloys when we are able to get good deals. Please ask us about these as through the variations we often have, we don’t list these on the site. The choice of 18″ wheels is too wide for us to stock everything, but we are always happy to try and source something if you have a specific idea in mind, so feel free to ask us about this. We can often be more competitive than other online sellers, and many other online sellers are dealing in alloys which have the wrong circumference which gives an inaccurate speedometer reading, throws out the vehicle gearing and are often not load rated (which will invalidating your insurance).
A set of 16″ load rated (825kg per wheel) alloys can be fitted whilst your vehicle is with us (and sometimes in the same day by arrangement). These are suitable for all T5′s, from the T26 model to T32, both short and long wheel base.
We also offer a wide range of body styling products for your vehicle. We can supply and fit sportline chin spoilers, rear spoilers, chrome or black side bars and many more. Please contact us if you would like to know more
