Steels

Hi all, looking to swap out the tiny little 15s on my maxi for something bigger, wider and hopefully fill the arches a little better, but want to stick with steels.

Any pearls of wisdom?

Cheers

Jbw do 18” steels, there’s a thread on steels in the wheels and tyre section.

Mk5 caddy steels are 16s. even the small change makes a big difference imo.
I went this route as you can usually find brand new, wheel and tyre sets off brand new vans cheaply.

As you have a maxi, pay close attention to wheel and tyre max load ratings as some steels (especially those for cars) might not meet the axle weights and you don't want to fall foul of your insurance if the worst happens.

Mercedes Vito steels will also fit. I think they are 17 inch. The JBW wheels are nice too.

They are a bit on the steep side, looking at other peoples builds on here it looks like the Vito's are the way to go just got to find some now!

Some caddy steels are 16s aswell as some from other vag vehicles like seat/skoda. I opted for Mercedes Vito steels on my t4 which are 17s and I’ll be looking for a set for my caddy now also. Facebook market place is a great place to look. Goodluck

JBW are probably the easiest bet (I've got them on mine).

Vitos look great, but IMO need banding to look right.
