    Default Wheel stud diameter advice

    Hi,
    Does anyone know the wheel stud diameter of the Vectra?
    I know it's 5 studs, but are all 5 studs the same? or different diameters etc?

    Thanks
    Dan

    And Saab's are the same too... as long as they're post 1997ish! Tell all... you've found some wheels?

    If they're definitely 5 x 110, the next things you've got to check are the Offset (or ET = Einpress Tiefe... how far "off centre" the bolt face is... think it should be 30 - 40mm from memory depending on the overall wheel width) and the spigot diameter (or Centre Bore diameter) of the wheel, so it sits nice'n'flush on the centre ring of the hub. Not sure of the diameter of this... 63mm at a guess... anyone?

    Get yourself some Vectra/Signum 17's in that case... SRI or Elite spring to mind. Can't go wrong then - and they'll look good!

    Yep 5 stud, pcd off 110, though you could fit 108-112 with wobbly bolts. Offset, you are looking for between 35-48,ideally nearer 35 end... Tyres I would go for 225/45x17`s . Though why not go for 18`s as they don`t cost much more but lok a lot nicer ...Also be carefull of the design of the wheel as a few people have had problems with the brake calliper hitting the inside of the wheel, this is purely down to the design of the spokes ...
