    Default Confusion over offset

    I have been offered a set of 17" wheels, I currently run 16"'s.

    The 16"'s are the steel ones that come as standard.

    This is the information that I have on the wheels that I wish to fit:

    Tyres that are fitted - 215 40 17

    Aspect ratio - 40

    Offset - 38

    Stud diameter - 112

    The question is...will these wheels fit direct to my car without any modification?

    Thanks in advance

    No you would need to fit them with wobble bolts as the vectra's stud pattern is 5x110

    Also the tyres are too small, they really should be 215/50/R17 or 225/45/R17
