i,m always wary of car wheels being strong enough to bear the weight of the van . however they seem the right size and stud pattern . Only thing to check is that the stud holes are 14 mm . If not they have to be drilled to size . Cost me $100 to do 5 at a machine shop .
There are a lot of threads on this subject .do a search .

not without spacers in the front, longer wheel studs in the front, and boring out the centers to fit the grease caps.

in other words, no

not easily at least Wink

Also, since these wheels dish in towards the center, even with spacers the front grease caps will stick out the front of the wheel and you won't be able to put the VW center cap on the wheel. If you're going with VW/Audi alloys try to stick with one with a very flat face. The front spindle nose sticks out over 60mm on a Vanagon.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like a no-go. Sad
