    Default Vectra C on 225 40 18" tyres.

    As most of you know, I have never been a fan of Vectra C being fitted with 225 40 18" tyres.

    In fact on the 7.5" rims, I always found it to be not the best in the handling stakes either, my opinion of course, but after being given the car below as a loan car while mine is repaired, I have to say, the 225 40 tyre on an 8" wide rim is a really nice combination.

    The handling is very good and the turn in very precise, I am putting it down to the fact that the 225 40 tyre sits on the 8" rim nice than a 7.5.

    It has made me think about 8 x 18" wheels if I have another Vectra C and 225 40 tyres.

    Heres the car with the 8 x 18" VXR wheels and 225 40 18" tyres.

    The VXR 18" snowflakes are 6 spoke and the 19" snowflakes are 5 spoke.

    This wheel in your picture is the optional 8 x 19" wheel for Astra VXR, Zafira VXR and Vectra VXR, all 3 fitted with 235 35 19" tyres.

    Astra, Zafira and Vectra VXR models are all standard with the 8 x 18" wheel as in the picture at the top of this post, Astra and Zafira having 225 40 18" tyres and Vectra having 235 40 18" Tyres.
