    Default My new family vehicle!

    So here is my new (to me) Vectra, a 1.8vvt. 67000 miles and one previous owner with full service history.

    Going to lower it and maybe change the wheels at some point in the future. What do you guys think?

    Nice motor fella, and if you change your wheels then I think those you have are steel, and called "composite", if they are, I would hold onto them, they make superb "winter wheels"

    They might be called "Structure " wheels too ... like they had on some " Exclusiv " models .

    They have a plastic wheel trim to look like an alloy ( KennyRDyer's look like they have Tie Wraps on )

    and the steel behind is the same shape .

    Woodpeck = Good idea about winter wheels .

    Ahhhhhh , I didn't think the word looked correct as I typed it, Of course I meant "Structure" LOL
    And, I can confirm that if you don't have locking wheel nuts, then you might need tie wraps because on mine, it is the locking nuts that hold the trims secure
