    Always consider the load rating of the wheels (and obviously the tyres - 101 for a Vito). Some car wheels just aren't strong enough for commercial vehicles.

    ML and S class wheels fit pretty well and are strong as designed for heavy vehicles but if you put a 1000kg in the back of your vito then the wheels may not last too long.

    Best to check with your insurers first. BTB500 on here drives a Vito and his insurers won't insure it if he changes the wheels from standard.

    I have had no problem with insurance. I do have to pay a little more for the pleasure but.. As members above have said just make sure you get the right rated tyres & wheels. They're rated for a reason. But they can transform your van big time.
