    Default Vaux Alloys

    Am going to fit a used set of alloys to my 07 exclusiv, was thinking facelift sri but always liked the gsi rims which were carried on to vectra/signum elites etc. What i want to avoid is constant repairs that seem to be prone on the snowflakes so would i be right in thinking these smaller rims seem to be alot more robust?

    You shouldn't have any problems with 17's mate, even 18's with cracks in them are pretty rare

    If you can get any used alloys checked for buckles before you buy.

    19" snowflakes are knowen for cracks (talking from experiance), anything else should be ok, if your buying 2nd hand wheels, check the inner rims & if there cracked the tyre wont hold air to well!
