    Talking Finally bought some...

    Penta 18" alloys for my signum.

    Not sure what they will look like or if they will suit it but ive always liked this style. The current tyres are 225/14 18's. 2 need replacing so was wondering if this was the right size for a signum/ vectra.

    also im not looking to spend much on tyres so want something cheap where is the best place?

    The OEM size is 225/45/18 - I know Duncan has 225/40/18 on his Signum and it looks spot on - you could also go 235/40/18.

    Just out of interest, what differences will these sizes make?

    Not a great deal of difference to be honest - speedo difference will be minimal, tyre side wall height difference will also be minimal - they will all be fine, one is wider than the others (235 > 225) and the sidewall on the 225/40 will be slightly smaller than the others (the other two being about the same).

    i am sure mine are 235/40/18 btw and they seem to fit an 8J rim better, are the penta's 7.5j or 8j ????
    and try either camskill or blackcircle for decent prices..
