    Posted: 29 Jan 18 at 20:44
I've some alloys from a T5 and want to fit them onto my T3?
I ordered some converters, but they were the wrong ones, this is quite the norm for me and I got confused with all the 115 and 130 stuff for sound alignment.
Can anybody help me get the correct spaces converters that ill need, please? 
The alloys and new wheels have been sitting in my garden for 3 years and they loook fucking great but not on the floor against me shed.

Have a read here - https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/wheel-fitting/

The T5 should have LK120 and ET55 - so you'll need 112 to 120 converters and spacers of around 20-25mm.

You will have to check the clearance and centre bore though.

Thank you Ducksass,
I"ve had the bore of the alloys opened up to fit over the shaft. Thats one thing I've done right, only after i'd had them powder coated!
I'll check out them there on the link you forwarded and let you know.

Nice 1

The centre bore I've had seemed out to 1mm over the shaft as for the onset is this the 4jj?

No your offset should be written/embossed on the inside of the rim - it should be about 55 and will be written as ET55.

If you read the page that I linked to in my first reply you will have a better idea.
Bollocks to it all!!

The ET is either 51 or 40, theres a number either side of the ET. TH 51 is to the rim side of the ET. The centre bore is 64mm.

The link you gave linked me to the basic t3 items listing on Brickwerks and there no adaptors?

 I think the standard offset on a T3 is ET30 but double check before you order any spacers/PCD converters.

Taken from the Wheeling fitting page


ET - meaning "Einpresstiefe" in German, this translated as "Insertion depth", or literally translated means back spacing. ET is the measurement from the bolt face of the wheel to the centre-line of the wheel. This measurement is crucial on a T3, get it wrong and your van will not be a nice vehicle to drive and you will forever be scrubbing tyres.
On a T3 you want to achieve an ET of around 30 to 36 ish. Standard wheels drop within this range. The rear isn't usually a problem but the front is. If you dip below 30 then the further away you get the heavier your steering will become, the more likely it will be to "tram-line" meaning the van doesn't want to do anything other than go in straight lines and the inside of the tyres will scrub. Dipping below 30 a little won't really matter too much but when you get down to say ET23 then weird things happen. See fig 1.


Bollocks to it all!!

So, if the T3 is ET30 and i have ET50 wheels! The difference is 20mm. Dose this mean I need spacers of 20mm?

Yes.
But as always it's not as simple as that.
20mm is the theoretical but.......you need to assess the clearance before buying the spacers.

We could get reaching climax soon.

And where is the clearance and how would I detect it?
