    Default Steel wheel

    ... I want to buy one instead of space saver. What parameters should it has? I'm looking for 215/55R16 tire, so I assume wheel width should be like 7-7.5J, am I right? What about ET? What about wheels from other Vauxhalls (Astras for instance) or Saabs? Maybe Omegas?

    Good advices are welcome

    if you get into the realms of wheels from other models, you'll have to start swapping tyres to keep the same rolling radius as your veccy C..or it'll throw the ABS and TC sensors as one wheel will be rotating faster or slower than the rest..

    any vectra c wheel, or late Saab 93 will fit..surely someone on here has a few old steelies in a shed they could sell you one of..

    I'll try to find something suiting my car . I did some research and I've found the typical numbers for Vecy is: 6.5J16 5x100 ET41. Is this correct?

    But they are too far away and first I try to find something near to me
