    Default 19" tyre pressure

    Whats the recommended pressure for 19" tyres on a vectra? Also, where's a good place to get mid-range tyres from and how much would a pair set me back?

    I run mine at 35psi all round, tried several different ratings and find that gives the best compromise between ride comfort and handling for my personal taste.

    To answer your other question. Have a look at Neutons on the neo brothers site or ebay store.

    As a general rule you can double the wheel size in inches. This is only a rough guide though and the tyre manufacturers should be consulted for an accurate figure.

    However at 35PSI your front tyres are slightly underinflated and rears overinflated!
    Should be :
    front 38
    rear 33
    The difference between 33 and 35 is very little
    Equally, the same between 35 and 38 is very little

    Also when fully loaded it should be :
    front 41
    rear 48
    That explains why you won't notice the difference
    You probably won't notice any excess wear on the tyres due to this under or over inflation

    Haven't got my manual to hand, but yes, interestingly the 2007 manual (http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/content/da...nual_Feb07.pdf ) states 39 front, 35 rear for the Z20NET on 235/35/19's (as you say, 48 front, 41 rear fully loaded) on page 306.

    Will have to double check my manual this evening and see if I need to adjust mine slightly, as I said it was done by trial and error and pure feel of the drive to me.
