Lee, T4 steels need the centres opening up to 66mm minimum as per everything else. Barely worth the effort?
I went for early Vito 15" with ET60 ,centre bore is ~67mm but with a 30mm bolt-on "hubcentric" type spacer (made them myself)
The minute they're back from the plating works they're on and pics will be up!

he`s got 215/75`s to go on them so at et55 i think they may not work without spacers. may have to fit a tyre on one of the rims and see.

cheers for the input guys.

Yea thats what im running, no need for spacers front or back.
Ofcourse you could if you wanted to bring the wheel out a bit which would help offroad.

Centres are okay I think.
You don't need the massive centrebore on a syncro, they are much more "normal"
I have it written down somewhere.
T4 rims with 20mm spacers should be good.
Don't forget Sharan wheels also.
As with most normal VW's, centrebore is 57.1mm

I have tried these, ET 55 off a T4 syncro, the centre bore is too small for the T3syncro, though i expect they will fit with a spacer as it carries the wheel away from the collar on the front hub.
speaking of which, I was thinking of taking off the front hub and macheing this off,or down to 56mm flush with the front disc, giving me a much wider choice of wheels to fit, vw, audi ect. I asume this would be alright, as the rear wheels dont centre on anything, relying on the studs
Anyone else tried this?

Sounds like a good idea to me. Can't see any reason why not.
