Spotted this on FB and thought it was worth sharing on here. Continental ContiEcoContact 5 tyres which were fitted to Aracaju wheels on Multivan and Caravelle models are being replaced FOC by Continental.
If the tyres are OE then the replacements are being done through the VWCV dealer network...
I’ve been running some toyo proxy sports for the last 20k miles and found them to be excellent but now don’t seem to be easily available
So what tyres in this size are people running? I can get Michelin from Costco or blackcircles seem to come and fit or I can go to a local place but have no...
Hi guys, I had new tyres fitted by a mobile tyre guy on Thursday. He had a hard time getting the wheels off (front only) due to them being rusted on and spent a while smashing away with a rubber mallet. This weekend I drove the T6 for the first time and at 70mph, whilst on the power, it vibrated...
Hi lads, I have done nearly 27,000 in my kombi T32 on continentals. The fronts are needing done and the backs I reckon I will get another few thousand miles out of them. Would you’s just change the fronts or do all 4 at the same time?
Your knowledge would be appreciated :)
Sorry for another tyre thread.
I believe I have read every tyre thread on here at least once and now my brain feels like someone pushed an electric whisk in my ears and switched it on.
Anyway I have seen some alloys I quite like (after months of searching) that are 20 x 9J.
I am looking for...
Well I went for a drive last Saturday.

£320 - 4x Hankook ventus s1 evo tyres in 255 50 18 106Y. Perfect if you'd like to fill the arch a little compared to a 255 45. 8mm left on all tyres, came off my t6 due to wheel and tyre change. Collection from Louth, Lincolnshire or I can work a price out to courier. Cheers
There are plenty of options according to the online tyre calcs but I'm curious what people are actually running?
My preference would be to go a smidge oversized both in terms of radius but also width (to get some rim protection but also because I don't like the 'stretched' tyre look). Probably...
Hi All, I know there are several threads on here about tyre pressures for non standard tyre sizes...
But but it seems not many are running the same as me (255/50 R18 106 XL) so I've been doing some research.
Firstly I found this web site very informative...
The Ultimate Tire Pressure Resource...

Here in Oz there's great variety of roads surfaces, some are smooth and generate very little tyre roar or hum others are so coarse that the cabin noise can be a bit excessive above 80kph. Does anyone have a recommendation for the quietest tyres? And can you change the commercial tyres that came...
I’m changing the tyres on the van as the fronts are shot. The rears have good tread and will be keeping one as a spare.
Anyone want a good used tyre - collection in Leicester.
Approx 5mm tread across full width. Made wk46 2018. V rated.
Being changed Wednesday so if I hear nothing I’ll...
Does any have or know if a 255 55 18 will fit on a t6? I feel the 255 45 just doesn't quite fill the arches.
Set up is 9j all round and ET35 lowered 40-50mm. Looking at buying the pilot sport 4 SUV.
Theres various threads about 255/55 18 but they're all regarding AT tyres and mostly standard...
Hi all, I’ve done lots of research but there’s little info on what I’m after.
I’m planning to change my canteras for some lightweight 9x18’s all round. I’m limited to tyre choices as it’s a t32.
A few questions for those with experience..
Would a 275 40 or 275 45 be a bit too wide on a 9” and...
Over the last few months I’ve been planning the upgrades to my T6.1 T30 with wheels and suspension (B14 Komfort) being top priority and I have to say I’m completely confused with wheel and tyre selections.
Looking online and speaking to the wheel shops they are recommending 275/40/R20...
Pair of 255 45 18 Minerva Winter tyres.
103 load rated.
Very little use so around 6-7mm left.
Have another pair of Falkens winters as well but they have inner tyre wear and one has screw in it.
£110 for the Minerva. I'll throw other 2 in for £20 if you want.
Hi guys, new here and looking for some help. Ordered a SWB DSG T32 204ps, build is week 16. Looking to put KMC hole shots with BFG tyres on it. As the tyres are R rated, 106mph and the vehicle max speed is stated at 123mph, is this permissible?
