'The Steel' Volkswagen Transporter Wheel Install
Apologies for ramming this little 'heads-up' at the top. Just a quick note to say that we were 'taken-back' by the 'take-up' of our first batch of THE STEEL, it's safe to say it was equal parts humbling, equal parts mania as we sent them live.
As we gear up production for the future we're going to have to ask for a little bit of patience. Brexit and covid have naturally had their way with the situation and as such we are unable to give an exact ETA.
If you subscribe to the back-in-stock alert we promise to give you the heads up as soon as they're getting close. We can then give you details on how to reserve a set. Thanks for holding on in there, we can assure you, it'll be worth the wait.
The Steel is our take on what an aftermarket wheel should be all about. The very essence of less-being-more while being grown up enough to not need explaining.
An OEM, understated aesthetic with a heavy focus on fitment, size and usability was the brief. We worked hard on offsets and sizes in order to accommodate a lower profile tyre on a van with a more purposeful ride-height, while also working with a bigger tyre on a vehicle with a standard height or lifted. A wheel that can truly 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 new bolts.
The wheels are available on their own or, with tyres blown on by ourselves.
We've teamed up with FALKEN as we whole heartedly believe their award winning WILDPEAK AT Tyre looks just right, but also has clout to back it up off-road.
The White 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, S+S Steel Wheels with Falken Tyres. These are load rated to 103.
The wheels are supplied only in black. We've had great results with 'plastidip' if you feel the need to change their colour, 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.
