    Default new wheels

    i want to get some new wheels for me car, currently have 16 inch rims on, would you guys recommend 17 or 18 inch rims, would it affect the ride handling a lot, i still have to carry 2 kids and the missus in the car so dont want to ratttle them to death
    was thinking towards 18 inch as they would fill the arches better as i am not going to lower the car
    any ideas/suggestions guys??

    i personally like the 17" sri alloys pre or post facelift they both look pretty good tbh, mrs has them on her car and the rides fine. well anything seems soft after running on 19's (or not as the case may be)

    This was one thing that used to worry me, ive just traded in my sri ( 17" wheels ) for a xp estate, but the only time i khow im running on 19"s, is when the road is really in bad nic ! all other road surfaces feel spot on ! that said, ive been told that the estate rides better than the hatch on the 19" because of the extended wheel base, shame you carnt try them all out first before you buy !

    Vehicle : Vectra C Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi


    Default

    I've got 19' Snowflakes on mine and love the 19's. About to swap them for 19' VXR's (fingers crossed). I'd go for 18's if you think 19's are too big.
