    Default Vectra wheels on an astra

    Hi all it's been a while!!
    used to be on here quite a lot but since the big sig went haven't been on :-(
    have a bit off a dilemma and even tho I have an astra h as a work horse thought my old friends at vectra c might be able to help.
    i am workin a lot in Germany right now and as they require you to have winter wheels by law I got my hands on a set of 15" steel rims with winter tyres on at good money,of a 05 vectra cdti,but when I went to put them on my astra h Sri cdti the front ones are fowling on the brake calipers but the back ones are ok?? The normal wheels I have on are 17" Sri ones,but they sit well out from the calipers.
    are the front calipers on an estate astra Sri cdti different to a vectra Sri cdti.
    any help would be greatly received.
    thanks in advance Big Neil.

    Have you checked the wheel offset? Its probably different on the Astra?
