Vehicle Requirements


  • Mercedes Sprinter 1996-2006 with 5x130 pcd wheels (single rear wheels)
  • Mercedes Sprinter 1996-2006 with 6x205 pcd wheels (twin rear wheels)
  • Volkswagen LT 1996-2006 with 5x130 pcd wheels (single rear wheels)
  • Volkswagen LT 1996-2006 with 6x205 pcd wheels (twin rear wheels)

Do I have Single or Twin rear wheels?

Our Wheel Carriers fit Mercedes Sprinter and VW LT Vans from 1996-2006.

They can accept stock or aftermarket wheels and 3.5T (5x130PCD) single rear wheels.


They can accept stock or aftermarket wheels and 5T (6x205PCD) twin rear wheels.

99% of vans are Single Rear Wheels. These include Sprinter 211, 213, 311, 313, 316. The number 3 denotes that the van is a 3.5 Tonne van and has single rear wheels. 

The small minority of vans have twin rear wheels. These include Sprinter 511, 513, 516 models. The number 5 denotes that the van is a 5 Tonne van and has twin rear wheels. 


Fixings required to fit the wheel carrier to the van are supplied.

Wheel Carriers bolt to the existing hinges on the door and require a single hole drilling in the skin of the door. Wheel carriers can bolt onto 180 and 270 degree hinges with no modifications needed to the hinge.

Always test fit any bolt-on product before painting to be sure it fits. We will not reimburse for painting if the part is not test fitted prior to painting.

All drilled holes will require any bare metal painting to prevent corrosion. We also bond the door skin mount and the door skin which removes the point load off the bolts whilst also sealing up the hole to prevent water ingress. 


  • Product weight: 10kg
  • MIG welded using Mild Steel SHS
  • Jig Built
  • Lasercut and CNC formed components
  • Supplied uncoated for you to finish before installation

Additional Information

Wheeliams Wheel Carriers are popular with van users who are looking for a beautifully designed Wheel Carrier with great practical features and offering amazing value for money.

Fitting the spare wheel at the rear of the vehicle keeps the wheel cleaner than when fitted to the underside and makes access to the wheel safer and easier.

The Wheel Carrier swings out with the opening of the rear door without any additional operations.

Our Wheel Carriers are fully compatible with parking sensors, rear van windows and rear wipers.

No need for you to relocate the vehicle licence plate or the vehicle badge.

You gain additional space under the van to fit gas, fuel or water tanks.

Wheeliams Wheel Carriers can be used for wheels too large to fit in the standard under-van cradle.

The Wheel Carriers are carefully designed for each make of vehicle so that they do not obscure number plates or rear lights.

Wheel Carriers are supplied unfinished in bare metal for you to finish as you wish.

Wheels are bolted on to the carrier using standard wheel bolts and we recommend that you use locking wheel nuts (M14x1.5 thread) for extra security. Please note that these are not included with your product.
