    What do you think is best 17" or 19" Alloys.....

    I've spoken with a few people who have 19" and said that the ride quality and extra road noise isnt worth getting them..... but they look so cool......

    neither of the choices above *lol* If I buy another vectra I would put 18`s on it as a compramise between looks and ride. The 19`s look the poodles plums, but you do sacrifice a lot of your ride quality, for me I regretted putting 19`s on it as it was too harsh, particularly in the winter when all the potholes appear. If you go for 19`s I would wait till next summer and keep your 17`s for the winter months. That way you will just have the harshness through the summer, save on 19" tyres and your wheels won`t take the winter battering ...

    Hmm, good question!

    I think 19s look great and think they would look great on my Signum, but I've kept to my 17s as I don't want the harsher ride of the 19s - especially as I have the Irmscher suspension on mine. I've been in a Signum with 19s and the Irmscher suspension and I felt it noticeably harsher - so I'm sticking to my 17s for the time being.

    You probably need to drive somebody's car who has 19s and see what you think - making sure they have the same suspension set up as you.

    So I'd class myself as "Got 17s and happy with them but would love the look of 19s with the ride of 17s!"

    I'd love 19's. All my miles are on motorways so the ride doesn't bother me. Not sure I could stomach the cost of tyres though....

    I've chosen 'I've got 19" and love it'. Purely on looks.

    The car does handle slightly better on 19's but you do get 'tramlining'. I thought the car handled pretty well on 17's actually.

    Obviously the ride is very slightly firmer, but that's to be expected.

    IMO, if you want the looks go for 19's, but don't expect too many gains with regards handling.

    I went for the compromise. Bought 18's and lowered the car. tyres aren't too bad and the ride is just fine.

    I've got pre facelift 17's - love it (shouldn't that be them?) but thats because I came from steelies - if I had 17's originally I think I'd want 19's more.....
