    Default Am I correct in thinking

    That Ford mondeo \ Jaguar S-Type \X-Type alloys would fit a Vectra C? I know the Bore is slightly out but they would require a lot less work then Audi alloys and therefore i would have thought alot safer.

    Jags pcd is 108x5,my wheels (s-type) are 8.5x18 et 49,but the problem is they use a flat washer on the wheel nuts not a taper seat bolt like a Vec,so you'd have to have special bolts made incorporating this,HTH.

    I think you will find that offset (ET49) is too high, I think the Vec will take 35 - 42.

    I think your right Dave, the vec has a very narrow tolerance of offsets due to the arches
