    Default BK 999 Wheels???

    Has anyone seen these wheels on a vectra and do they look ok? Quality wise are they a good finish.

    Ideally want 19" vxr alloys but cant find any for sale, or they are battered and still silly money!

    Can get the 18" BK999 for £600 a set with tyres brand new, they look the part on pics to me but not seen them in the flesh,

    I spotted this pic, see what you think

    I like 'em. If you can afford the OEM 19'' then go for that, but otherwise the BK999's are a nice alternative. Of course, being 18''s you'll be obliged to slam the vectra on it's ar$e! I'm thinking a 60mm drop would be in order ??!

    All the speed humps round here m8, lowering is off the menu.

    Did all that stuff with cossies and evo's and caught on loads of them, Got a mate who works in vauxhall parts, he gets me cheap cheap so might ask about the originals, but dont want bone shaking ride with elastic band tyres on.

    Thought 18" would be good compromise and still look sweet

    I have a set, they are a good quality wheel. Mine came with nankangs too which are a low budget tyre, which are quite hard (ie they wear slowly). Miles better handling than the 17s I had on before too, although some of the suppleness of the ride is lost obviously. When the nankangs bite the dust I tihink I will go for 225/45s or slighty bigger to soften them up a bit.

    Having just seen those RS6 replicas on Ballans car I am tempted by those now!
