    Default 17" snowflakes or replicas???

    Hey guys,
    Firstly, I live in ireland where the roads are a disaster most of the time, potholes everywhere, ad im not talking about little dents in the surface, I mean full on craters, so keeping rubber on 18"s or 19"s would litterally cost as much as a decent car in a year or two, not to mention the cost of replacing broken wheels , so its 17"s all the way for me.

    where did you guys get your snowflakes??been looking around and cant find anywhere that sells snowflakes or replicas in 17", although wouldnt mind the ones in the following links in a 17" either,

    http://www.alloywheelsni.com/alloys_...icVXR%20gm.JPG

    http://www.wheelworx.net/acatalog/Va...oy_Wheels.html



    I havent e-mailed these guys yet but I thnk they might do the ones on the left in 17",

    http://www.alloy-wheels.ie/opel.html


    There are some astra vxr alloys on e-bay in a 17" but not sure if they would fit, I assume they would but ya never know.

    Which do you guys rather, the snowflakes or the other vxr ones in the links???

    Are replicas a bad investment?? the astra snowflakes on ebay are not that dear, although they could be in bits with cracks and fractures everywhere.

    I have seen them in 18 inch, but not in 17's. This will make you laugh though.

    They are actually the 17" snowflakes that were standard fit to Astra Mk4 GSI.

    it never even entered my head to look for corsa alloys, didnt know they did a corsa vxr, bet that would be a quick little car

    not too fond of black alloys, dont know why, they just seem to get lost in the wheels arches, if that makes any sense, im really liking the snowflakes but even if i could get them in 17" not sure what they would look like.

    any other alloys look good on a vectra, either facelift or pre facelift because I havent decided which one to get yet, every time I see a facelift, im sold....then I see a prefacelift and im thinking, damn that looks good!!
