    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    some people like them and some hate them,, I personally think there ok so long as you get sensible sizes... They are about £150 for all four wheels, what sizes where you thinking of?

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    I have 5mm on the front and 12mm on the back but had to get the rear ones machined (lip on them which stopped them going over the hub)

    Hers is some 10mm ones http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Eibach-10mm-Wh...item230d6d91d4 whcih will fit ok.

    Don't forget you will need longer wheel bolts as well

    I think I tried various sizes above 12mm and they caught the arches

    Mind you, mine is on 18's 8J rims with 235 45 18 tyres and its on B6's with ebiach springs

    You would need hubcentric ones if you go over 12mm as there is no hub left to centre the wheel on

    Only thing to watch is they accelerate wear on your wheel bearings and CV joints if you go with too thick spacers as you put more strain on them. Having said all that I bet 10mm ones will look great.
