    Make sure they are up to being fitted on a heavy Van...

    And the metal thickness is reasonable...

    Hit a pothole in a mini a few years ago and ended up with a crack.... didn`t realise till I went to have a puncture repaired that they were cheap maid in Taiwan things... :(

    Hi Brian,
    Something to watch when changing to alloy wheels (15") - some do not have enough clearance for wheel balancing weights (even though offset was ok and 5x118). I ended up going to 16" (still with 5x118) and used new Michelin camping tyres - though my reasons were to get load rating at least 1250kg per wheel.

    Otherwise, as others mentioned I, on previous vehicle, simply got steel wheels refurbed (cost £25 each) - look good enough to not even need wheel covers.

    cheers

    Thanks BenGee,

    After much though I decided to go with steel wheels, 5 x of these (spare was rotten): http://www.tyreleader.co.uk/steel-wheels/peugeot/boxer/22hdi-11837

    Also went for 4 x of these: http://www.tyreleader.co.uk/tyre-pack/steel-2109/11837-2396/tyres/292210?q=4 (spare tyre was good as new)

    And four of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170898726224?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    If anybody sees anything wrong please let me know, I have 48hrs to back out.

    Advice for tyre pressures would be appreciated (standard 2004 AS Symbol), says 58psi on the drivers door pillar.

    Brian

    Hi Brian,
    Have used Tyreleader in past and they gave good advice when I gave them age/spec of vehicle.
    60psi front/65 rear - I had on my 15" (on 16" I find 65 front/70 Rear fine).

    Sounds good, I'll try that. The 58psi was marked with indelible pen by the previous owner.
