Well they do look similar to the wheel covers that were on it, if you squint a bit and it's dark :lol:

Yeah they are, guy swapped to a different set as he preferred the ones that don't have the gap in the spokes. I paid £250 for them

I parked right outside the house today and the Mrs hasn't noticed so I think I might be safe for now :wink:

They're 215/65-16 compared to the standard 215/75-16, just got the same old spare, I'm not sure how much of a difference it'll make to the speedo reading. Using a tyre calculator there's only about 130mm rolling diameter difference.

When these tyres need replacing I'll probably put 215/75-16s on it as they looma bit small at the moment

there's 15" on my van, so I'm gonna have to get a spare 16", can I have a normal steel wheel as a spare instead of forking out for a single alloy
