    Posted: 18 Apr 07 at 11:21

Van coming soon and just thinking ahead of what I can do to make it a bit better looking.

Don't think the missus will let me have some alloys, so I will look for some trims.

Do all the vw trims fit onto a standard van wheel or are there only one set I can get?

How much are they new from Vw or are there many knocking around at scrapers?

Do the caravelle ones fit also?

Hope someone can help

Guy

I think it's only the Velle ones that fit as I tried a set of Beetle ones on mine and they where not deep enough, price for the Velle trims was about £18.46 inc Vat each when I got a set for my van

 

Canít see there being a prolific supply of trims at the scrappers for such a new vehicle

If it's for a T5, then the shuttle SE ones fit perfectly. You'll need to remove the black centre caps first though.

For added effect, paint your wheels matt black.

They cost about £80 for a set of 4.

Let me know if you're not sure and I'll get you the part number

Does anyone know if VW do 17" trims?  The centre caps keep falling off the horrible wheels they gave me...
