    Morning all , I have just bought a Mercedes Vito 110 CDI and want to put some alloys on. I have found some reconditioned
    6" AUTEC alloy wheels
    model: B / BALTIC
    STUD PATTERN: 5 x 112
    ET / OFFSET: 50
    WIDTH: 6.5J
    CENTER BORE: 70.4mm....
    Will they fit my Vito and will I be able to put the 205/65/16 load rated tyres on? Thanks for any advice!

    You need load rated wheels as well

    You also need to talk to your insurance company before buying any wheels. Some insurers will accept non-standard wheels, while some won't.

    Agreed, mine weren't happy initially with the new wheels on my Land Rover until I explained they were a safety improvement

    The Autec alloys are load rated at 690kg. Will these be suitable? ?

    Highly unlikely.
    Your van will likely have a maximum weight of 3500kg so simple division by 4 says no.
    In reality its not that simple as the rear wheels often carry more weight than the front when fully laden.
    Using wheels that are not load rated will invalidate your insurance and may lead to VOSA impounding the vehicle if they stop you and check.
    You need to very in writing from any supplier that the wheels they provide are load rated for your vehicle.

    According to V5 the revenue weight is 2800kg gross....is this the figure you are talking about? Thanks for all your help!

    That'll be it - which reinforces that they aren't load rated.

    Actually good question. They say the tyres are rated at 975kg - very misleading!

    So I spoke to a friend who is a Fox dealer, the Fox wheels I posted are perfect for a Vito, they are properly load rated, provided they have the correct Van tyres on the OP will have no problems
