    Question wheel info required

    Hi all,
    my 19 inch snowies are going soon as i cant stand the rough ride anymore lol

    so im looking for advice, the following wheels are two different types,

    one is a vectra wheel and one is an astra twintop. both wheels liik identical but have slightly different dimensions....

    my question is if i was to get the twin top wheels should they fit and be ok simply because they are cheaper, both 18inch and look identical,

    here are the stats and info anyway.

    Vectra Wheel

    Alloy Wheel 18 inch

    High quality alloy wheel with 11-spoke design and silver finish.
    • Dimensions: 7.5J x 18 offset 41, 5-bolt
    • Fits tyre size 225/45 R 18 91W

    part number 13155580

    Astra twintop wheel
    Alloy Wheel 18 inch

    High quality alloy wheel with 11-spoke design and silver finish.
    • Dimensions: 7.5J x 18 offset 37, 5-bolt
    • Fits tyre size 225/40 R 18 92W

    part number 13215494

    both wheels look and appear like this.



    all help appreciated

    thanks
    Dave

    TBH the only difference is the offset, the vec can take between et35 and 45 so either would be ok although the astra ones would sit out furthe. Iirc my evo stars are et37

    Should look fine mate, i'm sure there are a few on here with the astra ones. Try 'twintop wheels' in the forum search
