Hereís my long awaited wheel upgrade:
Mercedes wheels from a 2006 C 240
7x16 ET31
7mm spacers rear, none in front
60mm rear studs
Small ball seat lug bolts and nuts
Drilled out lug holes to 14mm
All hardware including drill bit provided and fit perfectly by Christopher at T3 technique, thanks Chris!
After much research and looking around for tires I ended up getting the Achilles Multivan 215 60 R16Cís, I feel like for the price this is one of the few C rated, 6 ply tires in this size made, only available online, so far the ride feels pretty great.

Pick up a set of mid 1990s PIAA 17x7 dual drilled bolt pattern wheels; they fit my Westfalia and Volvo 745T!😀

I haven't seen anyone post these. Do you think they would work?

They are from a 2003 C230 Kompressor Coupe. ET37 7Jx16H2

I think so with a 5mm front spacer and a 10 to15mm rear+ MB lug nuts and bolts possibly longer studs. Call Chris at T3, he will hook you up.

Welcome! I saw and got pix of lots of Vanagons when I visited the Big Island but not that one.

That's a sweet van. Those look like 15" Fuchs. I just sold a set of 16's, but I would have kept 15's 8)

It looks like you have 45mm drop springs. The Carat springs have the wheel centers aligned with the jack holes (see bottom ref pic)

How about these? I guess I will need spacers due to the offset. Where do I find Centre caps from?

What a nice match to your van. Iíve got steel rims, but this has me leaning to painting the outer rim silver, and black center.

Any one knows if these will fit, allegedly they are 15x7 with an ET 37

They are 16 x 7 ET37

dariushz2 Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:49 pm

You are correct they are indeed 16x7 ET37, will they fit without spacers?

Jake de Villiers Sat Oct 17, 2020 9:56 am

Big thanks to [email protected] for all of the necessary hardware to get these Audi wheels mounted. Super easy guy to deal with, can't wait to do more business with him more in the future!

Audi B6 A4 wheels. 15x7 ET39 with spacers front and rear. 205/70-15 LT tires. I also installed the front lug stud conversion from T3 at the same time. Now I have all of the same hardware front and rear. Super happy with the look and fitment!

Doing some shopping on CIP1 the other day and came across these wheel/tire packages. 16x7.5" Mercedes replicas, with 215/60-16 Kuhmos. The appear to be very similar, if not the same wheels that GW sells in their wheel/tire packages.

Silver set
https://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ACC%2DC10%2D6599%2DSET

Black set
https://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ACC%2DC10%2D6599%2DSETB

Install hardware
https://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ACC-C10-6687

Not sure how long these have been available, but I'm just now noticing them so I thought I would share. As of writing this post, GW is currently out of stock of their package, so this is a good deal on a currently in stock option. Also worth noting is that they offer "free shipping" as well, which could be a big cost savings.

Small Car Performance wheels on the Sea Cow.

I think they look pretty nice. 16". Titanium color.

They do bolt on without spacers. However, the gowesty control arm risers needed to be removed as they caused contact. I can put them back in after getting some appropriate wheel spacers installed.

My old 16's didn't work with the new Burley front brakes
