    the police spec ones only had 17`s so id say they probably would fit.

    I had to fit the 16" steel spare wheel this morning. Fortunately, it was to the rear...

    But I noticed my recently fitted 292 rear calipers almost touched the rim. No way the front 314 calipers would pass there.

    So I'm wondering if my former 17" rims would fit... Really not sure there. And weren't police vehicles equipped with 345 mm discs ?

    although iirc you need to make sure there are no wheel balancing weights in the way

    Of course didn't seem to be a problem when I've ran Vxr front setup with elite wheels , however clearance between wheel weights is very minimal

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default

    Vectra vxr front and rear brakes will fit under facelift and prefacelift Sri wheels, However as said on the front wheels you will need to make sure no wheel weights get in the way.

    FYI a 16" space saver will fit over 314mm brakes but not 345mm brakes.

    z80 Please stop giving out guesswork advice on here.
