Still rolling with stock 14" wheels and tires on your Syncro? You deserve better than that. These 8-hole alloys look great, sure. But what they offer in improved ride and driveability is what really counts. We promise that you won't be disappointed!
This package includes four (4) 16 x 7.5", ET 38, 8-hole style alloy wheels; four (4) 215/70-16 BFG All Terrain T/A KO2 tires (which delivers up to two times the tread wear on gravel roads -- and has a tougher sidewall rubber compound that's twice as thick -- than the previous KO offering), mounted and balanced; four (4) center caps; and 20 lug nuts. The long and short of it: these things come mounted, balanced and ready to bolt on and drive.
Important note about this product:
• This wheel/tire WILL rub on the lower rear edge of the front fender (the lower edge of the factory "Syncro flare" if so equipped), but only during simultaneous tight turns and extreme suspension articulation. This will happen even with our lifting springs installed. Please note, however, that this will not cause any severe damage to either the body or the tire.
Initial shipping costs are subject to change. For U.S. and Canadian customers only. Please call for rates to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Puerto Rico, or any other destination outside of the lower 48 states. Shipping cost with a 5th wheel may not be entirely accurate. In the case that it is not, we will contact you with an accurate shipping amount.
The center caps fit perfectly on this wheel. However, the front track (which is the distance between the left and right wheel) is greater on the front than the rear on all Vanagons. Adding the GoWesty Wheel Stud and Spacer Kit to the rear wheels makes the track the same front and rear. See related products below.
If you are going to use any GW alloy wheel with the GW finned drum brakes, you will need to purchase longer studs (56mm), sold separately below.
14" Spare: If you plan to keep (and potentially use) your 14” steel wheel spare, you will need to keep one set of your original steel wheel hardware in the event of needing to use your spare.
16" Spare: This 16" wheel will not fit in the spare tire bay.
