    Over the years, you can see the VW Transporter has changed in terms of wheel and tyre fitments. The key differences in short, the T2, T3 & T4 are interchangeable baring, the TS BUS Vanagon, which is in a world of its own. With the PCD been 5×112 and offset ranging from ET41-55 having said this the centre bore ranges from 69-57.1, meaning the OE 57.1 wheel from the T4 will not fit the T2 or the T3. To confuse things more if you have a standard wheel from the T2 centre bore 69 or T3 centre bore 66.6 these can be converted to fit the T4 by using a spigot ring, which cost around £6-£7 each, bargain. The T5 & T6 are very different from the T2, T3 & T4, both PCD and Centre bore have changed PCD 5X120 and centre bore 65.1. I guess the good thing about the T5 & T6 been identical fitments is if you have T5 and you are thinking of upgrading to the T6, you can simply put you big wheels and tyre straight onto the new one.

    One big craze is to have range-rover wheels fitted to the T5 and I believe this will continue to be the case on the T6, this is a very easy conversion – Please see below.

    T5 & T6 Transporter 18” wheels 8×18 PCD 5X120 ET50 centre bore 65.1

    Range-Rover Sport 18” wheels 8×18 PCD 5X120 ET53 Centre bore 72.6

    We have a few issues to overcome, i.e. NUT & BOLTS is the big issue. The VW needs bolts and the Range-Rover wheels are designed to be used with a special wide style nut in the past this would be overcome with the use of a hub conversion changing this from bolts to studs, and is a very costly way just to fit wheels to your vehicle. Now there is a simple solution to this. You can now buy a sleeve, which fits over the bolts making them wide enough to be use with the Range-Rover wheels “genius”. Another issue is the centre bore you will need to buy spigot rings taking the centre bore from 72.6 to 65.1 and the jobs done. The kit you would expect to pay around £50-£60 this contains 20 bolts 14×1.5, 20 sleeves and 4 spigot rings outside diameter 72.6 inside diameter 65.1.
