    Default VXR 18" or 19" Alloys advice

    Right then I fancy the VXR 10 spoke alloys (anyone know what the name of them is?). There is a replica 18” set on ebay for about £650 which look good or I will try and source a set of 19” genuine ones and was wondering what people would suggest?
    With regards to the 19” one, are they noisy and if I have the boot full will they rub at all?
    Any feedback would be great.
    Anyone know a Vauxhall dealer who sells these at a reasonable price?

    Thanks

    If it's the VXR style alloy you want, in my hoenst opinion you'd be better going for the 19's. The 18's just look a little small to me, maybe it's because I'm used to seeing the 19" VXR's about.

    An 18" alloy does give a much better compromise between handling and comfort though, so if you can find a nice looking set of 18's go for them.

    For Vauxhall or Irmscher alloys speak to 'Andyvec' on here

    The replicas are made by a company called BK, and they're apparently good quality. They also make them in a 19" version, which will, I'm sure, be far, far cheaper than genuine VXR rims.

    is Andyvec involved in vauxhall some way or knows where to get cheap alloys

    PARAPAUL I see BK do the 18" but I cant seem to find 19" apart from a make called AEZ who work out more expensive than vauxhall alloys!!!!!!

    BK don't do VXR replica's in 19" only 18" unless they have just released 19s
