    Hellooo i am considering buying a set of 18" snow flakes for my Vectra and i was just wondering if anyone on the forum knows of any places that do good deals on new Snowflakes ?

    gezza - go to wheel base and get 18" VXR's instead - £500 with budget tyres or even better - £650 with toyo's.

    loads of cash left and last longer than flakes.

    I may be making it up - but I'm sure that I've heard stories of them cracking quite easy.

    .

    I think thats down to pot holes and with 19's the risk increases. I remember seeing the same issue with BMW 19's on watchdog..not sure of the outcome tho. Plenty of cars out there on 19's so i think you pays your money and drives careful
