New Calibre T-Sport alloy wheel range from Wheelwright
Alloy and steel wheel distributor Wheelwright has extended its Calibre T-Sport alloy wheel range. Already popular for Ford Transit and Transit Custom fitments, the wheel is now available for the smaller Ford Transit Connect.
The Calibre T-Sport has been designed for 3 different PCDs, the first being the Ford Transit and Ford Transit Custom. The T-Sport complements the Ford Transit’s styling exceptionally well and is available in 4 colours, Gloss Black, Silver, Gunmetal and Frozen White (which is a colour-match to the OEM Ford Transit colour). The T-Sport was originally produced in two different sizes, 7.5×18” and 8×20”, both in the 5×160 PCD.
With the success of the T-Sport for the Ford Transit, Wheelwright decided to offer more PCD options, opening up the fitment range to the Volkswagen T5 & T6 in 8.0×18” 5×120 in Gunmetal and Gloss Black.
Most recently, Wheelwright decided to expand this wheel’s availability within the Ford Transit range, but this time in 18” for the smaller Ford Transit Connect with a PCD of 5×108. Initially available in Gloss Black, the classic racing look of the T-Sport complements the new sporty design of the Connect perfectly.
Marketing executive, Dan Brooker, explained: “The initial popularity of this wheel in the Ford Transit and Transit Custom fitment took us totally by surprise, with stock arriving to the UK and selling out to customers almost instantly. Feedback from the market suggested there was a real taste for this design and a demand in the Transit Connect fitment, so we duly obliged. We can’t wait to see some customer photos of this wheel on the Connect.”
Wheelwright’s portfolio includes UK brands Calibre and DRC, alongside German-owned AEZ, Dotz and Dezent, have continued to dominate the commercial van market by developing their selection of load rated alloy wheels.
