    Vehicle : Vectra C Facelift

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : CDTi 150

    I'm sure a Facelift Vectra Elite 17" wheel just fits over the VXR brakes
    like the one below

    i just use a 18" on mine ebay is a good place to look

    A 17" wheel will fit on the rear but not the front due to the size of the brakes. I bought a normal vectra-c space-saver for my vxr . Just means if I get a front wheel puncture would need to fit it to rear first and then the rear onto the front. Also got the foam and compressor as a last resort
