    Default Alloy Wheel Questions.......

    I have a set of Ace 205 alloys (215/35/19) from my old Vec B GSi.......



    When they were on my Vec B GSi, I had to put on (think they are called either spigot rings/spacers)

    I wanna put them on my Vectra VXR so heres my questions.......

    1. I assume these alloys will fit on my VXR but will I have to put on the spigot rings/spacers as well?


    Thanks for your help all

    I think they would make a genuine vxr look like a vxr replica if you know what I mean. They would cheapen the look of it. Thats just my opinion tho mate, they looked ok on your b but I wouldn't put them on a vxr.

    No, fair enough mate. I appreciate your honesty

    My VXR came with 18" snowflakes. I might just stick to getting the other set of VXR alloys then (dont know the name of them (sorry)

    No worries buddy, I know the ones you mean. I wouldnt mind a set of those 19" vxr ones for my CDTi but ive got other jobs that need doing first ! Maybe someone on here might do a swap/cash with you for your snowies? Stick an advert in the swaps bit. And those 19"s you have must be worth a fair bit!
