    Default Alloy dilema

    Should I refurbish the standard 17 inchs alloys on my SRI or replace them with 'Snowflake' ones?

    I'v done a quick search on the Bay for the snowflakes and some say they are 18 inch while some are 19 inch.

    Which is the correct size and has anyone ever swapped over to snowflakes from standard?

    What did you think?

    18"s are the astra style ..still fit tho. think there are 6 spokes on the 18s 5 large spokes on the 19"s ...

    and 18s will be a damn sight cheaper to put rubber on ..HTH

    I went from 17" standard GSi alloys to 19" snowies a few weeks back, and what a transformation to the look of the car - take a look at my previous posts and see what ya think

    What about the upgrade vxr alloys, the late anthracite inner diamond cut ones are nice.

    Decided to go for the re furb option and it is booked in to be sorted in a couple of weeks. It's a tyres off job, stripped back to the alloy, blasted, sprayed, baked & laquered with tyres re fitted and balanced for £190.

    When I started looking at the bigger wheels I couldn't justify £600 - £700

    With the money I'v saved I think I might spend £150 of it on a couple of Xtron dvd players?
