    Default What new Alloys???

    Ok Sold my VXR Snowflake 18's and need to get some new alloys sorted now as in theory i have no wheels

    So options?

    VXR replicas
    (sure we all know what they look like)

    Or do i go for these?

    Both are 18's and my car is lowered 45mm


    The picture is 4 Stud but they do come in 5 Stud

    I like the 19" but
    1) they go for near on £1k for a Mint set
    2) tyres even for budget crap are close to £100

    So decided 18's will be OK.
    Would these suit the Vectra alright? pretty simple looking IMO so i hope they would

    i know what you mean about the tyres

    i would love a set myself tbh but its having a spare grand

    i think they will suit the car but it will take a bit of getting use to i think

    Tyres are the issue.
    Just priced up for some 19's for any type of tyre its £120 fitted upwards id need 4 thats £500 give or take £20.
    Ive found some really nice 19's but its gonna end up costing over £1k

    my wheels were 650 inc tyre brand new. inc in this price was £100 for them to be redrilled to fit the car. there are nice looking 19"s out there cheaper, takes a lot of time looking though

    I have found some Audi Alloys which have a massive centre bore of 77.7 so all i would need is spiggot rings and Wobbly bolts and itd be sorted but tyres are pushing it up to over £1k where as 18's are £600 odd
    Id like to pretend money doesnt matter but it does lol
