    Default 19" Wheels on 3.0 CDTi

    I am thinking of putting 19" wheels (more than likely the snowflake VXR ones on my 2004 Vec C 3.0 CDTi SRi.

    I have read contrasting views that they will or wont be suitable.

    Anyone done this and had trouble??

    To follow on from this I am also interested in fitting 19" on my 3.0 v6 and would like to know the tyre dimentions used and the tyre pressure for the front and rear (not indicated in the manual due to the emmision increase the 19" has on the 3.0)

    Thanks

    You guys need to sit and read this thread..

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ghlight=wheels

    note that you HAVE to use the correct load rated tyres.. it's really most important for the 3.0ltr diesel..

    Tyre pressures etc are all shown in this thread.

    yes, one of our members has had a problem, but that was down to the tyre suppliers, not the wheels or any problem to do with the car.. Load Ratings MUST be adhered to on these tyres..Only use extra heavy duty ones..

    Also if my standard 17" rims have 91 rated tyres on does that mean that they will be ok on 19's???

    you want extra load tyres, normally an XL on the tyre size and speed rating area on the tyre
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
