    not alot you can do with the tyres matey, they obviously wont fit on the new ones so either try and get a swap with someone who wants rid of 18's or keep them on the old allloys adn sell alloys with nearly new tyres on them! might be worth a few more with brand new tyres!!

    internet is probrably your best bet unless you have dedicated alloy wheel shops with staff who know the specs of each wheel and what will fit??

    internet is the best for range of styles, good starting point is always ebay, just type vectra c alloy wheels and see what you get HTH

    I think our cars are 5 x 110 pcd for the mounting holes and the offset is about 38mm so sadly those won't go on I don't think.

    try a website in the uk for a nosey on styles www.elitedirect.co.uk or www.rochfortyres.co.uk once you see a design then speak to your local speed shop / tyre shop or search ebay as the planet has shrunk and I have bought loads from the US over the years,,,,
