    Default Vectra Sri - Changing wheels/alloys to 19'' & seats to a material - HELP



    Im due to get the above with standard wheels/alloys

    but want to change the exterior mainly but also the interior so eventually it will look like this:

    Exterior:


    I know it will be expensive but I want to go ahead with it but need some help.

    What size are the standard Sri wheels/alloys? 15''? or 17''? Is it a massive problem to jump from 15'' - 19'' and can it be done? Im worried when I go over speed bumps it will affect the wheel arches and cause major problems with rusting and suspension but the 19'' look so much better. I dont no too much about cars so help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Standard SRI wheels are 17's....19's will bolt on fine with no problems whatsoever. but snowflakes are about £900 a set + tyres....suspension and rusting etc will all be fine, it's very straightforward swaps..

    The sri has 17" wheels and upgrading to 19 is not a problem, infact its what I want to do.
    What interior do you want to change to and what is in it at the minute

    nope, thats what the wheels cost...plus tyres... they are very sought after..

    they will just bolt on as direct replacements for your 17's..

    Interior I mean the seats, at the minute its the standard vectra seats, not anything nice like the Design or Elite but i want to change it to this material:

    So its kind of like the VXR seats but less sporty and more of a tidy look in my opinion, like a silky sort of leather but spongy.

    Oh, thats ok then. I went to Lookers today and in the spares department the man said I needed to change suspension springs and everything, qouted me over £1500 in total for all the work (inc. tyres, alloys) but I had a feeling i was bein taken for a ride.

    I thought for a minute that you had leather and wanted normal sri interior.
    Thinking that I finaly was going to get the leather for my motor and you would have mine. Nevermind
