    Default 18" snowies?

    First thing, I'm not trying to claim this seller is lying because I could be wrong - just curious.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Vauxha...item19da484869

    Did they make GM 18's in snowies? I thought it was just 19.

    I note he also calls them VXR wheels,did they make them in 18, but he's just used the wrong pic?

    GM do 18" Snowies, the Vectra/Astra VXR have them as standard, the 19" VXR ones were optional IIRC.

    Yes 18" were for the astra. 19" were for the vectra.

    18' have 6 spokes, 19's have 5 spokes. They also have slightly different offsets.

    Everyday is a school day. I thought they all came with the twin spoke design.

    Do you know the offset of the vectra 18's ? My astra ones were ET39, just wondering if they were different on the vec or if they were just the same, knowing vx I doubt they commissioned different ones.
