I think a set of black rims with chrome
caps and outer rings would look nice on a white Van!

Agreed. Just the fact that they come on the standard NB instead of the turbo models will make them undesirable to the 2fast2furiouswannabe crowd.

Me likey.

I thought about it too a while back when first introduced, but perceived different pattern shut that down.

Now I know better . . .

Specs please!

What spacers did you use?

What size tires?

Did you open the center bore?

How did you mount?

I am guessing you used R12 radius ball lug fasteners?

That van is a clone of mine. I am tempted to put white wheels on mine now actually. Looking good,

How do these roll for you?

I REALLY like how those look, I have the "original" 14 version...

If you dont mind me asking how did you come across a set of the new rims?
I saw a new beetle parked next to the vanagon a few weeks ago and thought that if there was a way these would look great. Now you proved it!!
