    Default VX220 Alloy's will they fit?

    Hi, just womndering if the VX220 wheels fit on the vectra, and yes i know i own a saab but its a veccy underneath so would be a straight swap from my 15" castor wheels lol.

    Anyone know?

    OK, So the PCD is correct, but they have a different ET front and rear, plus the 175 tyres are very very narrow

    Apologies they are 5*110 and the hub diameter is the same. I would just be concerned with fitting a much wider tyre on the fronts ti the standard. But wouldnt want to run your saab on narrow fronts

    the saab has narrow wheels on there now that are 175 width anyway so i figured it wouldnt hurt having wider wheels on the back and the same width on the front thats already there.

    out of curiosity why wouldnt you wanna run the car with narrow front wheels?

    ooops thats me making the assumption that like my old 9-3 and my vecs they were 215 as standard. In that case no issue running 175's.

    Or you could get these :-)

    The first set are the second set, but on offer

    If they end cheap enough then the VX220 are definately worth a shot.

    You would need 2 pairs of rear vx220 wheels.
