    Default Do Astra and vectra hve same wheel fitments ?

    hi all,

    Ok, may sound a stupid question but im curious, looked around the net but cant find any difinative answers.
    Im looking at some alloys that are fitted to an Astra H 2007 5 stud, is this the same pdc (110) as the veccy c ? has anyone else fitted wheels from/to astra/vectra ?

    Cheers.

    Fitments are usually the same, its just the tyre sizes that are different, profiles me thinks!

    I changed my steel wheels on my 2008 Vectra Estate for 2008 Astra Coupe alloys. The tyres are the same size - 205/55/16. Just changed the bolts for ones that are a bit longer.
    I found the below site helpful.
    http://www.carlsalter.com/wheel_fitments.html
    I've actually now 4 x spare tyres for when the tyres on the alloys need changed. changed.

    thanks for these replys guys, the wheels in question are 18s with 225-40-18 tyres, I currently run 225-55-16 so not much difference in wheel diameter (-6mm) according to:
    http://www.etyres.co.uk/tyre-size-calculator.htm

    So maybe a step up to 45`s might make the ride smoother with ony a 17mm increase.

    My main worry was the offset question, but if they fit an astra they should fit the Vectra easy, vectra offset 35-45 the same as the astra 5 stud 98-03, but newer astras were not listed on the http://www.carlsalter.com/wheel_fitments.html chart.

    You need to be careful as your speedo my not read correctly.
    Use the attached website to check your standard wheel size against what you are looking to put on. As long as you know the difference you can make the allowance to stay away from Mr Plod speed gun.

    only a 2.64% increase with 45's on
    leaving on the 40's is a -1% so nothing really to worry about either way.
