    Default couple of small questions regarding alloys.

    Hello All.

    I have a 2007 astra sri 1.8 VVT, which i don't like as it is fairly slow and drinks petrol.

    I have just got a 2007 vectra 1.9 cdti (150) and i'm happy now!

    I don't think much of the alloys that came on the vectra (17" design 5 'very thick' spokes, bit like the 7 spoke elite). Anyway, i LOVE the wheels that come standard on the astra SRI (not the x pack). Both sets of alloys are 17". So some questions:

    Will the 17" astra wheels fit straight on my vectra?

    Will i have any problems with regards the astra being a smaller car, wheels not being as wide etc? and vice versa with the vectra?

    Will it affect the warrenty on either car?

    I'm going to be selling the Astra so not sure what to say to a potential buyer; "i put those alloys on the astra as they are rubbish and i nicked the good ones for my vectra..."

    Just check the tyre size and speed rating on the Astra tyres as long as they are either 225/45/17 or 215/50/17 with a speed rating higher than (v) then they will be fine

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    yea Steve that's the ones. I think it looks quite good. But i have doubts about how it will affect the astra with regards to selling it (with the vectra wheels).

    To be honest mate, unless they're a car fanatic they probably won't even notice that there are alloys fitted to it at all, let alone if they're the right ones...

    And if they do, just plead ignorance and say they were on it when you bought it...
