We are happy to offer these nice quality high pressure cast wheels made specifically for the Syncro & Eurovan platform. They have the correct bolt pattern and correct offset to mount without any modifications. No special hardware, longer studs, or wheel spacers are required. This package does not include tires.
Wheel package includes:
• (4) 16" x 7.5", ET38, high pressure cast aluminum wheels finished in silver paint with clear coat
• Center caps (plus centering rings for Eurovan), and mounting hardware.
Fits: 1986-91 4WD Syncro Vanagon & 1993-2003 Eurovan
Syncro Vanagon 14" Spare: 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. Pro-tip: If you get a flat in the front, move a full size wheel and tire from the back, and put your 14" spare on the back in its place. Much safer steering this way!
Syncro Vanagon 16" Spare: This 16" wheel will not fit in the spare tire bay without modification to the bay.
Eurovan 16" Spare: 1998-2000 Eurovan Owners: This wheel will not fit in the spare tire bay without our Oversize Spare Tire Kit.
These wheels will NOT FIT 2WD Vanagon!
Heavy Duty Finned Drums: If you are going to use any GW alloy wheel with the GW finned drum brakes, you will need to purchase longer wheel studs.
Torque specs: Please torque the fasteners to 95 ft.lbs.
These wheels have an ET of 38mm. The ET number is the measure of how much the bolting surface of a wheel is "offset" from the center line of the wheel. An ET of zero means that the surface where the wheel bolts to the hub is located at exactly the mid point of the wheel. So, for example on an 8" wheel, 4" are outboard of the bolt surface, and 4" are inboard. If the ET is a positive number, that indicates a "positive offset", which means the bolt surface is moved OUT from the center point of wheel, which means the wheel and tire are moved IN towards the center line of the vehicle; so they stick out of the body LESS. The BIGGER the ET number, the MORE the tire and wheel are shoved into the body, and the LESS they stick out. Ideally, the maximum amount of ET that will fit the suspension design of the vehicle should be used, so the wheel sticks out as little as possible, and is therefore less likely to rub any part of the body.
