    Unfortunately not
    the centre bore/circle will not sit correctly on the hub of the vectra so the audi alloys would need machining to fit i think around 4mm of the centre bore.
    It can be done however how safe is the wheel going to be after having the centre bore size increased?
    Combine that with Vauxhalls 5x110 PCD and Audi using 5x112 PCD you will need wobbly bolts
    Personally id stick with VX alloys

    Someone in Belgium did what Gregg explained and they are for sale and would suit a Vectra:



    I like them a lot on an Audi but I'm not convinced about the Zafira

    It is a shame, i wanted some on mine also.
    All i will say though is lookalike/copr alloys arent alwasy the best compound.
    IMO your best sticking to genuine VX Alloys, remember newer astra is a 5 stud so keep checking ebay for vectra alloys, astra alloys and also saab alloys (Saab 93 aero is the same as the vectra in nearly every way)

    no tyres though
    you can pick those up for £450 on ebay with tyres brand new.
    remeber though the centre bore needs to be redrilled so your probably looking at £25 a wheel for that, than wobbly bolts are id geuss £50
    It really will be cheaper and imo safer to buy Genuine OEM Vauxhall ones even if from an Astra, zafira etc
