'The Steel' Volkswagen Transporter Wheels
The Steel is our take on what an aftermarket wheel should look like and be about. The very essence of less-being-more.
OEM understated aesthetic with a heavy focus on fitment, size and usability was the brief we set ourselves.
We've deliberately worked hard on the offsets and the size in order for it to accommodate a lower profile tyre on a van with a more purposeful ride-height, while also working seamlessly with a bigger tyre on a vehicle with a standard height or lifted. It truly does do both.
The fitment is designed to accept factory bolts and accessories for the Volkswagen Transporter platform and is plug and play. Old wheels off, these straight on. No adapters, spigot rings or bolts.
We offer the wheels either on their own or with tyres.
We've teamed up with General on this one as we whole heartedly believe their award winning AT3 looks the business but also has clout to back it up off-road. The silver van pictured in the advert and in the film is on the 255 x 55 tyre and has NOT been lifted, this is how your van would hypothetically look if you went for this setup.
If you're after a lower profile tyre and more purposeful stance we'd recommend a 235 x 50 as you'll find it will be load rated.
The wheels are supplied only in black, we've had great results with 'plastidip' if you feel the need to change their appearance, this also allows you too 'peel' the paint off if you have a change of heart. If you're militant, you'll be able to paint all four wheel with just the one can.
The wheels, in our eyes are the ultimate setup for the Volkswagen T5/ T6 chassis and provide the flexibility for a variety of looks while keeping the look OEM, grown-up and purposeful.
To clarify, The Ascot Grey 'lower' van has been lowered on 'coilovers' and is wound all the way down, the silver van is not lowered and is standard ride height.
