    Default Will there be any Issue's fitting 19" alloys with a ET 32?

    As title says, really liking the look of the 3SDM's 0.01 19 inch, they only come in 5 x 112 which i can get around, only worry i have is the ET of the alloy its, ET 32, will this be ok? its going onto a 1.9 Design 57 Facelift Vectra C?

    anyone running 3SDM's 0.01 or could reassure me ET 32 is going to be Ok?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can fit a different ET depending on the width of the alloys.

    I have put on sme Vauxhall Omega MV6 rims, they are 7.5 inch wide, 17 inch diameter with an ET of 32 and fit a treat. The ET is measured in millimeteres.


    Look at my previous postings on Ebay wheels to see how they look on the car.

    My 19" Irmscher Delta rims are 8" wide and ET 35.

    ET 32 will then be just 3 mm outer, which is nothing (some people have even added spacers).

    Now to know how your wheel will be sitting, you need first to know the actual rim width.

    Preface SRi models were built with limited steering angle, while later models used a shorter rod, allowing to fit wider rims.

    Standard rims were 7" wide ET 41, meaning the 35 mm ET was absolutely necessary to fit 8" wide rims, for instance.

    If the rims you're intending to buy have a 32 mm ET, they're probably even wider, such as 8"1/2, and then the 3 mm difference may be not enough, so you'll probably need spacers. You should first enquire about their actual width to be sure.

    Conversely, fitting narrower rims with a low ET will just help widening the car's stance with no other drawback.

    Fitting 5x112 rims will also need using wobble bolts to accomodate the car's 5x110 spacing. And have you checked the rims' center bore diameter ? Since they're obviously not made for Vauxhalls, they might need and adapter ring there too.
