    Why not fit different 19" wheels if you dont want Vauxhall ones.

    I have Audi fitting Kahn wheels on mine

    I think im getting too old, the wheels have shifted my spin shape lol im getting all sorts of noise up front now which i think is the result of lack of play in the tyres being a 19".

    Know what you mean about the noise..... the ride is fine, but on some surfaces the noise is hard to ignore!!

    I reckon I will end up with 18's on mine ultimately.

    I love the way they look on the siggy but i dont want it to wreck any more of the suspension, its just so unforgiving on these kent roads.

    After having had an xp with 19" snowflakes I'd agree with your decision to downsize mate,the roads in this country just no use for such a big wheel,ive got set of 18s in my shed waiting to go on and with a decent suspension drop they look absolutely fine

    i would say going down to 18s is a good idea as i will be doing this as soon a s i got the funds to get the 18s i want.
    the main reasons i am gonna do it is cos they seem to be noisey and snowflakes crack too often!lol
