    i dont think they will fit as the offset is not right and the back tyres are 255/40/17 are not the right size .. khalid

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time

    I wouldn't bother with them as one set is wrong size and the others are close to the winter tread limit of 4mm (for Switzerland, France too I think) and as they know about winter driving I'd trust them to know a thing or two.

    Just get a set of bog standard repmobile 15" steel wheels (£50 set) from a scrappy, and then some tyres from the net, £35 each? These rims use 195mm wide tyres which bite through slush/snow much better than the standard 215/225 tyres on 17" rims.
    I've never been stuck working 4 seasons as a ski-bum except when the snow was above the bumper, and even then using reverse would work for a bit longer if it really mattered - very rare to have snow that deep in Europe as they have a clue
    I put my winter wheels on this week and felt quite smug in North Yorkshire earlier today when soft roaders with ordinary tyres had some issues
