Fitting a VW T2 Bay spare wheel mount

Fitting a spare wheel mount

If you are looking for extra space inside your van, a simple way is to move the spare wheel to the outside.

This mount allows you to bolt the spare onto the front of your van. You can then personalise your van by adding one of our spare wheel covers which come in seven different styles to suit any van.
