Mistakes people make when it comes to alloy wheels for their VW T5

One of the worst things that could happen when it comes to van accessories, is making a mistake. Yes, this may not seem like a massive issue at first, especially if the mistake is only a small minor one, but you really do not want to be making any sort of mistake at all! So as a result of this, we have decided to list some of the most common and easily avoidable mistakes that people tend to make when it comes to alloy wheels for their VW T5. 


First up on our list of mistakes, is to do with the financial aspect of the alloy wheels. Too many people just purchase the first alloy wheels they see, and assume that the job is then done and dusted. But that is not the case. When it comes to choosing what alloy wheels you are going to have for your VW T5, you should definitely take some time beforehand to ensure that you know exactly what it is you want and need. This includes the size of the wheels, the brand, and also what price range you are aiming for. We know that for some of you with strict budgets, you're quite limited to only a few types of alloy wheels and brands. You may find yourself in a position where you might go over your budget slightly, just to ensure that the wheels are very reliable and of a high quality, or you may find some which do the job perfectly and are in your price range. 


Next up on our list of mistakes is for those of you who are going to be fitting the alloy wheels to your VW T5 yourself. If you are someone who thinks you will just give it a go because it will save you some money, then it is probably best that you don’t fit it yourself. You will find that a lot of professional companies are more than happy to install the alloy wheels to your VW T5 for free, and if they do charge it will only be a small fee. We suggest that you do not attempt to fit the alloys yourself, as you may do it wrong which most likely could lead to even further and sometimes dangerous complications. Instead, it is always best to get a professional company to fit the wheels for you in order to make sure that everything is done properly and safely. For those of you who are in a position where you can fit the alloy wheels to your VW T5 yourself correctly, then make sure that you have everything you need beforehand. This includes things such as tools, measurements, and also anything else you may find useful to have during the process. You may even find that Youtube may be of some use to you, and you could definitely go and check out some videos if you would like too. 



The safety is the most important factor when it comes to any sort of van accessory, and should always be your number one priority. If you cannot guarantee your safety, then please do not attempt to do something or buy something that could interfere with this. We strongly recommend that you only purchase alloy wheels that have been TUV approved, in order to ensure that your safety has been assured. TUV approved is literally where a sample of the item, in this case the alloy wheel, has been tested for safety and has met all standard safety requirements of the German Equipment and Product Safety Act. Hopefully this puts your mind at rest, especially as all of the alloy wheels we sell here at Wildworx Customs are TUV approved. You are definitely in safe hands here!

There is no set price of how much VW T5 alloy wheels would cost you exactly, due to the large amount of different factors influencing the overall price. For example, this factor could be the brand of the alloy wheels, the design of the alloy wheels, the company where you are buying the alloy wheels from, and also maybe even the fitting if that is something that you choose to do. Another thing you will probably want to do when it comes to the financial side of things, is to look around. You may find it quite beneficial to widen your options a bit, which may even potentially save you some money! Reviews are another great way to find out if you are going to be getting your money's worth, so we strongly recommend you do read some.
