    Default New alloys, 18" BK999

    Just been to pick up my new wheels managed to get a set of 18" BK999 wheels off ebay. Not had chance to fit them yet though.

    very nice , and i also have them on mine , before you put them on , seal the wheels with some wax. wheel wax , sealant will make them easier to keep clean , and as you already have them off ,

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time

    They're 40s rather than 45s, might not be perfect but they'll do me. I prefer the look of the lower aspect ratios anyhows.

    45 side wall is the correct size on a vectra with 18" rims, companys sell aftermarket rims with 40 side walls as cheaper. Must get them in bulk
