    Mag's for the H?

    My Fiancee gets her new Astra H this weekend ("CD" model, no mags, no kit, no colour coding 1.8L man)....
    I'm going to get mag's for it sometime.... Do stock turbo mags off the G fit? They are reasonably nice looking mags and can be had fairly cheap What about the off-set? i believe the offset is 43mm for the turbo 17"? I want them to sit out a fair way (and not scrub) as the stock wheels sit a long way in... I guess i could always take my wheels off and try them on her car... But that involves effort
    Any advise? Anyone seen any mags that look good that'll fit?
    Thanks

    think it goes back to the 60's and early 70's cal when the wheels were made out of magnesium instead of alloy like on the old holdens and stuff, pretty sure the HQ stud Pattern wheels were the first holden wheels to be made of alloy back in 1976 could be wrong tho

    You will struggle with Astra G wheels on the H.

    Astra H wheels are mid to late ET30's, the optional 18's for example on the H are ET37.
