    Yes they will, you will need to run 225 35 19" tyres and make a slight mod to the inner wheel arch liner, but nothing too major, takes about 15 minutes.

    But to be fair, it only caught on the 235 35 19" tyres and I did the modification before switching to the 225 35's.

    Here's mine with them on :-

    Mine has Bilstien dampers which help, but to be fair the 19's on the Zafira is much more supple than on the Vectra, they are no way rock hard on the Zafira.

    I keep asking myself why did I sell it? It had every factory option bar the sat nav, 270bhp and 275lb/ft and was a right laugh.

    But after having it for 3 1/2 years from new, and having another silver Zafira GSi for a year before this one I thought I fancied a change.

    But I may get a Zafira VXR next year.
