    Seeing as nobody else wanted to help...

    What you've described isn't the offset. 7" or 8" is the wheel width. If you go for 8" wheels you'll have to fit 225 width tyres but it won't be a problem.

    You should check what the offset is though - Vectras can take offset (ET) from 42 to 35, the lower the number the further out in the wheel arch it will sit.
