    Default Alloys

    Alright, i'm after some help, i'm after buying some alloys, and i'm not quite sure. I've seen some nice 17"s but are they too small? I was parked next to my mates punto today and he had 17"s and they looked alright on his car, but would imagine look tiny on mine! Though i've seen some cars with the 17" prefacelift SRI alloys and they look pretty decent. The only other option is to save up and get some snowies, though that'd be a while, and the tyres cost a fortune to replace! Anyone can give me some advice? Cheers.

    IMO, 17''s look to small.
    If 19''s Snowies are out of reach for now, how about a nice set of 18''s?
    BK999s are popular - an 18'' VXR Replica.

    17's look small on mine and with it not being lowered theres a HUGE gap between the tyre and body work..

    Go for 18's if you can

    Well I seen a set without tyres for about £350, and was pricing up 4 tyres for them and they was about £80 each, still alot of money. But I think you've definately steered me clear of 17's now. I was planning on dropping the car in the near future, so probably better I went with 18's!

    They're the last of the pictures. They're 18" Genuine Vauxhall Alloys. I believe they were an option on the Vectra and fitted later to some of the XP2 cars.
