    If you fit them with 5mm spacers, you will be about right with the offset, so no problems there.

    But 225 35 18" tyres are useless on the Vectra C, they are too small in diameter.

    Yes you don't actually need the spacers to make them fit, but the Corsa VXR offset is wrong for Vectra C. The 5mm spacers will raise the offset to the correct distance.

    A) They look wrong on Vectra C with ET47-ET49
    B) The handling won't be right as GM don't fit ET47-49 offset wheels to Vectra

    Tyre wise, as said, 225 45 18" is the correct size for Vectra C, you can't really use the 235 40 18" tyre like the VXR as the VXR 18" wheel is 8" and not 7.5" like the Corsa's.

    225 40 18" would be the best compromise, these tyres were offered by Opel in Europe so you will be fine.
