does anyone have an idea what type pressures I should run?
I have 17 inch GP’s that have been banded (from 7” wide) to 9” and 9.5”.
The tyres are:
Front 225/55/17 XL 103
Rear 235/55/17 XL 103
The van is lowered on Bilstein coilovers and is usually not too heavily loaded.
Set of 4 x 18” Banded Steels in Candy white with baby half moon hubcaps. In good condition but will need new tyres. Some swirl marks on 2 hubcaps where the double sliding doors just rubbed on full opening.
Made by Duchy Banded and done about 10,000 miles on my T6. The bus was lowered on...
Being in this scene, I feel it's my personal responsibility to push the boundaries with my own money, just so others can learn the answers to the questions no one dares to ask.
Like for instance, would a 10" banded GP running a 50 profile tyre fit on a mega low static T6? No, it doesn't.
As the title says.. these are nearly new. They have had tyres fitted and been fitted to the van taken off and now up for sale. They may show some signs of being put on at the bolt holes and some tiny marks from tyre install but I’m being super picky here. I know there shouldn’t be any marks but...
For sale are my freshly refurbished banded Amarok’s.
These I had run for almost 2 years, I bought them from Paul after he’d had run them for a few months.
They are 9” Front and 9.5” Rear banded by Jamie at Duchy Banded Wheels.
After 2 years and almost 30k miles, it was time for a...
Just got around to adding a few pics of the new wheels.
I have a T32 that gets a lot of abuse for work and spends it's life being bumped up curbs and driven in fields, so the 20" alloys had to go.
I looked at all options and every steel possibility available and finally settled on these for...
Here's one for the steel wheel guys. I've made up another set of these eye catching and much talked about dynamic centre caps.
These are made up from modified genuine caps, that have been professionally plastic primed and painted Black, then the centres removed and a new set of genuine...
Up for sale are my 17" GP steels. These were banded by duchy to 9" front and 9.5" rear, powdercoated chrome.
Selling fitted with a set of matching Bridgestone Turanza er300 tyres in 235/55r17 and complete with centre caps. Tyres were on my previous devonports and have covered around 8k I...
Banded Steels from Duchy.
Only 3 months old. 8 inch front. 8.5 inch rears.
Fitted with Minerva Winter tyres
Decided to go a different route but love the wheels. Duchy really is an artist. Really well balanced.
Based in Essex. Beat the wait list. Come with centre caps.
As the title says.. I have my RRs coming back from Jaime mid week they have been fully colour changed to Dutchy chrome the most popular colour.
they are 9 and 9.5 widths. I run air and they have to be one of the most offset and width perfect wheels I have ever run. They just fit per
As the van is up for sale Im selling these wheels separately.
18" Amarok steel wheels banded by Duchy Banded at 8.5" front and 9" rear.
Wheels have been ceramic coated from new (before tyres were fitted.)
Powder coated in chrome. Will come with the VW centre caps.
Tyres are Bridgestone...
This is less an advert for my wheels to buy now, more for anyone that wants to reserve them.
To explain: As many of you know, I'm currently running a new set of Duchy Banded 18" Amaroks in 8.5" fronts and 9" rears, in my normal Chrome powder. On the basis that my chum @shane lightbown has wider...
Hello you lot!
Here's my beauty and I love her!!!
they are 9" front, 9.5" rear and it sitting on So-low's at their highest all round. So there's a slight rake (as opposed to being level) Tyres are 255/50's rear and 235/50's front. Soooo comfy with 55's and coilovers on their highest.
Duchy has just banded a new set of 17" GP's for me in 9 and 9.5" and finished them in the stunning Chrome. These were going on my T6 as my winter/daily wheels, but something else has just come up, meaning these potentially won't be going on my van as daily's.
They are finished and still with...
I’ve always liked the look of these on other vans that I’ve seen. I really like them on mine but they aren’t the direction or look I was going for! ideally I’d want to change the colour I think but with these particular set it would be criminal to change them as they are a one off
After trying on a set of different wheels yesterday, it's time for a change of look on my van, so the 19s are up for sale again, and I won't bottle out this time.
Plus the suspension will be changed shortly, meaning I need to change the profile of my tyres anyway.
19" Range Rover steels...
I’ve a set of 17” banded steels for sale.
I can’t remember for certain, but I think they’re 9” and 9.5”. They cleared the door and suspension no problem on my T5 running VanSlams with a hub mod.
215/55/17 Keter Sport Macro 5mm to the front.
225/55/17 Avon ZV7 5mm and a Arrowspeed N6000 6mm...
This might come as a surprise to some, but after a couple of years running my RRs i'm contemplating changing to a different set of wheels.
I'm not in any way desperate to let them go, but i'm fast running out of storage space for wheels and tyres in my garage after buying yet another set of...
17" Banded Steel Wheels, suitable for VW Transporter T6 and T5.
