    Default Whats the best Suspension and Wheels Size?

    Continuing from this tread http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=32021 what is the best suspension package for the vec-c, cos it is absolutely shocking on handling (Works F##D Transit is better).
    Would like to know what package you have (springs, Dampers, bushes) and the costs of the upgrades.

    I know every one says bigger is better but what size wheels and tyres are the best to suit the vec?
    And what prices do you all pay for tyres 17", 18", 19" 20".

    I personally think 18" is the optimum size. I changed from 17" to 18" and my ride actually improved (was running both sizes with Irmscher suspension). So I'd say 18" with something like Irmscher or Eibach/Bilsten or Koni Pro suspension.

    Gotta agree, the standard suspension on the likes of Elegance/Elite is not for handling! - it's meant for comfort cruising down motorways. It's the main reason I changed mine, it was worrying when driving on the twisties.
