    Default alloy wheels

    hi im looking at getting some after market alloys for my vectra design. i was thinking of 17s but the come with small tyres so i am now thinking of 18inch wheels. what are the correct tyres to get i have 16s on at the mo. what will the ride be like with low profile tryes and any ideas to get a bargain.

    you'll need 225/45 R18's..... to keep the speedo reading correctly...

    the ride isn't too harsh at all...you get better roadholding than on the 16's as well..

    I run 235/40/18's and no real speedo probs either. I think they look a bit better too

    edit: Are the design alloys not 17's anyway?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
