Just wondered what alloys people are running or planning to run, including size,width,et and tyre size with pics if possible. Still trying to make my mind up

I've got 19'' Cades Alloys, 225/35's .. I think they are ET45 but I used 5mm spacers as the centre caps kept popping off lol

Hi all. I'm new to this forum today. i'm still waiting on data admin to grant me full access... Currently waiting on picking up my black 61plate caddy next week and could really do with some help knowing what size wheels are best to fit without having any problems? Would like to go with the 19" rotiforms but could do with knowing other dimensions. any help would be much appreciated! Thanks Andy

Thanks for that, van looks real nice on those rims. Are they from the phaeton? I have also been looking for a set of them on eBay, but no luck. Have you lowered your van too? And does the sliding door clear the Ns rear wheel? Thanks
