Excellent advice from him in the past - he used to be a member here too but sadly left.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Is your van fitted with Alko chassis and 16" wheels?
If it is and you are interested I have the adapter to fit between the chassis rails and a carrier for 16" wheels (different to 15" ones), for sale

One possible problem, it and I am in North West France, if that's no problem contact me via PM.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life“s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

A little bit of a thread resurrection but I have just bought the above wheel carrier. I think it should be a straight fit as mine is a new van?

The unit I bought off ebay has no bolts. Does anyone know what size bolts are needed for the various bits.

Also, how does the section below (pic) attach to the actual wheel. I have been told you thread it through the centre hole in the wheel but I cannot see that happening. Is there something to do at that point?

Hallo VXman, and welcome to the forum.

I've no idea how that would work - my spare wheel is in the garage - but hopefully someone can help.

How very clever! Would that be as safe as some sort of cage to hold the wheel in place? It would certainly save a bit of weight I imagine.

I wonder can these be retrofitted to a fiat alko chassis?
