    As a 2002
    Is it a Vectra B or Vectra C?
    The tyre size you have suggested is it is the older wheel size, in which case 215/55R17 is probably correct
    Full details should be in the rear section of your handbook
    If in doubt, visit a dealership and confirm the correct tyre size at the parts department

    Factory fit size was 215/50/17 for the 17" wheel.

    Lot of people change to the 225/45/17 size however because it's more popular and therefore cheaper to buy.

    Sounds like someone fitted the wrong sized tyres at some point in the past.

    Also, it sound like the tyre garage haven't got a clue what they're talking about.
