    Default 17" Alloys for Vectra Design

    I am looking to put 17" Alloys on my Vectra Design, 16" just don't look good enough, so after some advice. Do I go for Elite or SRi 17" or like these on eBay - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...QQcmdZViewItem or these - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ayphotohosting

    Then may look at lowering a bit.

    Cheers

    both sets of alloys are nice but if your going for the 17" then your better
    getting the tyre profile of 50 as thats wot they shud be on a 17" alloy for
    the vectra,there is a set of sri 17¬s in the for sale section that someone
    is selling and your better off going for the correct ones and as they will
    suit ya car very nicely.

    There's nothing wrong with using 225/45 either Andy. It's a recommended Vx size, and given it's a more popular size the tyres are cheaper and there's more choice.

    I changed from 215/50 to 225/45 when I had 17s and I think they look better as well.

    lol - yep, Vx fit the 215/50 as standard on 17s (not sure why as they aren't a common size and so the tyres are more expensive).
