    I run personally 35 at rear and 29 at front. But thats cos how I like it.

    Start at 32 all round and play with them as you want. Can make it a bit more tail happy, or digs in a bit more at the front.

    Cheap handling mod.

    Surely 19"s should be around 38psi? A rough guide that tyre fitters follow is twice the rim size. If you are carrying a heavy load or are doing long motorway (high speed driving) then it is recommended to raise the pressure slightly.

    The correct Vauxhall Pressures are 33PSi Front and Rear for normal use, and 36 front and 44 rear for a full load.

    Take a good look at your tyres across the width, if they appear to be wearing faster at the edges, then pressure is probably too low. If they appear to be wearing more in the middle then pressure is too high. Barring any tracking/balancing/camber issues tyres at the correct pressure should wear evenly across the whole width.

    Do 19's (or even 17's) fit as standard or are modifications required? Oh, i've got an elegance, not an sri or gsi or sxi etc, if that makes a difference.

    they will bolt straight on.. there was some talk of having to fit uprated trackrod ends, but no-one has said that they have encountered probs retro-fitting the 19's..

    Vauxhall fir uprated steering arms to all Vectra C's with 18 or 19" wheels, but they have to do this as a manufacturer but many owners have been fine with the standard arms.

    Elegance models were available with 19" wheels from the factory, but these did have uprated (SRi) suspension and a modified steering rack.
