    I had 205/55/16 on my old sxi alloys, I'm sure that size is in the handbook. other option was 215/50/16 I believe ???

    205-55-16 is the standard Astra size, so I'd expect the Vectra to be marginally larger.

    Pre-facelift brochure says all standard 16/17 wheels 215 width, but early facelift brochure says 16 inch steel wheels and 16 alloys on Life (optional) and Club (standard) are 205 width and 16 structure wheels 215 width, and all other 16 inchers 215 width. After Club trim was dropped on the facelift 16" steel wheels are 205 width, and all other standard fit 16/17 inch wheels are 215.

    Does it really make that much difference if the tyres are 205 as opposed to 215. (apart from 10cm)?
