    Default Wheel choice

    I'm considering fitting some 18" land rover alloys to my signum and was wondering if anyone on here has fitted alloys using the hub adapters as im just trying to figure out how to workout the offset with the width of the adapters. Any help would be great thanks

    They are 18x8 with a ET 57 I'm not sure what spacer size to use as I would like them to fill the arches right out

    My Insignia VXR replica's are the same size as you are proposing but with a 42mm offset. You would get away with a 15mm hub adapter without affecting arch or suspension clearance.

    Ok that's a great help cheers :-) do your wheels fill the arches out on the rear?

    I'll let you be the judge. 235/40 18 tyres would probably help instead of the 225/40 fitted to these when I got them and an extra 5-10mm on the back spacer wouldn't go amiss either I reckon.

    5x110 to 5x120 adapters needed. Plus studs to get the land rover flat nuts to fit not sure what thread is used on land rover studs. In sure they are m14 and vauxhall use m12. So if your using off the shelf Adaptors, you will need to find a studs that one side is m14 and the other m12. Demon tweaks or Grayson I think do them. The other option is to have custom Adaptors made 5x120.3 with a m14 stud. There's another way around the bolt issue. You can machine a flat washer one side with a 60 degree chamfer the other. This would allow to use vauxhall bolts on to off the peg Adaptors. Land rover rims are offset friendly and not overly wide. 18"s are 8j and 19"s are the widest a 9j. So go for a 20mm adaptor and shim the rear to get the wheels where you want them. 15mm on the front would be safest but 20mm all round will be far cheaper, as they are the regular sizes
