Ihave had mine for 2 years now happy with them finish of van nicely.
on the down side you can catch them on kerbs. I knocked out nut covers as they stick out quite a bit, then cut down the two that hold on the covers, this picture was taken when 1st fitted.

I have a set on my mk7 jumbo ice cream van and on my mk 5. the ones on the old mk5 transit have been on there for 5 years and still look great after a wee polish now and then. The mk7 transit is a single wheeler 16'' and i have lost 2 in the past year and had to buy replacements. the back ones seem to ping off if your carrying enough weight to cause the rear tyres to squash down. The single rear ones just push on like a normal trim. would post pics but dont know how! haha

here is the mk7 with the single rear wheels. i know you cant see the rear wheel but it is exactly the same as the front. yeah they only push on but someone cant just come up and pull them off and if they try putting they're fingers through the holes to pull them off but thy'll cut the hell out there fingers as they are razor sharp in the back

How do your Euroliners come off, they are held on by nuts, either original Transit wheel nuts or Euroliner nuts depending on type. So either they are stolen or maybe not genuine Euroliners? Euroliners are £199.95 plus vat for set of four.
Fronts are often kerbed unless you are a very careful driver!

I think the Eurotrims are the push on type, various types from £76.60 upwards plus vat for set of four.

Correct mate. Euroliners are for double rear wheel vans and trucks. Eurotrims are for single rear wheel vans. All from euroliners. Automate as the main agent.

Ha ha you like them, they're my pride and joy although surprise surprise the old smiley face one is the dependable one. ahh when a transit was a transit, If your serious about the trims i usually deal with place called discount motoring world in glasgow they have always been great to deal with and when i lost one they were able to sell me just one. If you're on a budget they also do a eurotrim replica made out of strong plastic and just as shiny, i honestly woulnt know without touching them which was which and theyre much cheaper. Discount motoring sent them to me also so i dont always need to away up there. :)

Nice vans. There's nothing worse than dirty food vans and these two are immaculate. I couldn't find the yorcaterer website either.
