    Default Alloys & Tyres

    I had a slip on some ice which caused the car to slide and hit a curb, side on to the alloys. Now i have quite a bad wobble on the alloys, so ive come to the conclusion that there wrecked.

    On a good note though i have now bought some 18' aftermarket alloys. Now, this might sound like a dump question, but, what tyre sizes will fit on them? The only info i have is this 7.5x18.

    When i buy tyres normally i just get the tyres that were already on the alloys, but as these have none, bit confused as to what to get.

    Thanks
    Ian

    i did the same thing at the beginning of the year which resulted in a nasty wobble.

    have you had the suspension and such checked?

    i had mine checked out and i had bent the track rod end (think thats right).

    Your right, 225 40's are fine but they are not the correct size for 7.5 x 18" wheels for Vectra C/Signum.

    Forget the 245's in any profile. But 235 40 18" tyres are the correct fitment for Vectra VXR on 8" rims, but a 235 40 tyre is OK for a 7.5" rim.

    Spot on, if you want to keep things right to VX spec, 225 45 18" tyres are the spot on tyre for a 7.5" rim. But 235 40's would be a good compromise if 225 45's were not available.

    Tell me about it, I hit a slopped kerb and belt the strut, track rod and knuckle and knackered the wheel bearing.

    It was an expensive mistake!
