    I would have thought the offset would have been wrong, seeing that an Omega is rear wheel drive.

    16'' omega alloys will not fit over the 314mm front brakes unless they are the IRMSCHER SOFT STARS

    omega steel wheel in what size ?? my point was that if you have a 16'' steel spare and 314mm front brakes it wont fit over them as the offset is different to the vectra's so catches the bigger brakes, if you have normal 285mm front brakes the 16'' wheel will fit weather steel or alloy, 15'' steel wheel would be pushing thing's i think, i have a 16'' vectra steel wheel as a full sized spare instead of the space saver
