    Default Big Help Please On Wheels

    As I now need to replace all 4 tyres I am considering going for a wheel and tyre package off the 'net.

    Have seen these and am thinking of 17's with 205/45/17 tyres.

    My veccy hatch is sliver and has 16" steel wheels at the moment.

    Your views would be greatfully appreciated but I only have a week or two to make up my mind as tyres are getting low.

    You need 225/45/17's on a Vectra Bud.

    Won't be 205/50's! They'll need to be 215/50's, which are hideously expensive.

    Go with the 225 option.

    Default Cheers

    Thanks Andrew

    Cost is obviously important too!

    What did you think of the Wolfrace Wheels?

    Wheels will look fine m8, tyres, as Andrew says, go for the 225/45/17's The rubber is much cheaper.
