    15" wheel trims in Halfords are around £35 - much cheaper than MH dealers at around £90, but do they fit a Boxer's wheels? Has anyone tried them?

    maybe not.......the wheel center might be more 'bulbous' than a regular car wheel.

    why not take the van to halfords and explain you need to try them first.
    if they do fit then a tip.......put a couple of white electrical tie-wraps through the holes in the trim and wheels....stops 'em flying off.

    Boxer Wheel Trims

    I had trouble in obtaining wheels trims to fit my Boxer, they are very deep at the centre and it is unlikely that halfords stock.
    I obtained my set of trims at Malvern show at about £30, so the answer is to spy your chance. mine are very posh and have enhanced the van.
    good luck.

    Why not use silver ones? Looks even better & still does the same job. :thumb:

    I have the orginal ones & they fit VERY tight, so maybe they wont fall off. :Cool:

    I bought my wheeltrims from 'PARMA INDUSTRIES', I sprayed the steel rims with
    black aerosol then fitted the trims.I bought the NEW multispoke version.
    The onething about parma is if you need another one they'll supply one. check the goods before you sign for them incase they're damaged by the carrier

    I eventually bought Chromed plastic trims from Motorhome Accessories on ebay for £38.99+£8.50p&p. They fit nice and tight and certainly look the part. I did consider buying the stainless steel trims at £89.99 but will give these a try first. If they get nicked I'll be less upset..... Must change my avatar to show them off.
