    Default vxr alloys

    Do genuine vxr alloys only come in 19 inch wheels, i have seen nice looking 18 vxr alloy wheels, would these be copies, what should i be looking out for in genuine vxr wheels.

    every wheels has to be made to a certain standard buddy or they're not allowed to sell them.

    sometimes, you pay for the name - i.e, tsw, bbs, ronal etc.....the lesser known companies will be a bit cheaper and the design varies, but have to meet the same criteria as every other wheel.

    my son has vxr copies on his vectra b and they are pretty good............the only difference with his copies are the centre caps - genuine vxr alloys have the full cap, where his copies have the 60mm centre cap
