    Default 19's Wheels

    right, think ive finally decided to search for some snowflakes in above size, the question is,



    if i ft them to the car, will i have to lower it so it doesnt look like an offroader? or will the size of the wheel fill the arch enough not to look silly?

    its currently an SRI 2.0 ltr turbo on standard suspension, if i lower it say 40mm will i need shorter shock absorbers or can i just get away with putting a set of springs on.

    the other option is for 18's and keep it standard set up

    Cheers in advance

    30mm is plenty for a vectra and 30mm is fine for std shocks.

    you can upgrade to Bilsteins in the future.

    Heres my car on SRi factory fit suspension, I had a standard SRi with the 17's and it had the same suspention as this one. If yours is an SRi then it will look like this.

    No these are the 19" snow flakes with standard SRi suspension. My last car had the standard SRi alloys and suspension.
