    There 17"s mate and the rims a Smiths Dragons, very rare to find so good luck in finding them, smiths dont sell them and there wasnt a lot made for vauxhalls.
    I brought them as blanks and got them drilled ect for my car.
    The color is a as ffoerg said, and its a 1.6 16v sxi.
    Last I heard Ritche Rich had brought them, dont knw if they wil be for sale again

    IMO you shouldn't have sold them...theyre beautifull! One of the best alloys I've seen on an astra. How much you sell them for?

    your chances are zilch in the blanks as I brought the last set of blanks.
    Just need to keep your eyes open and tbh I prefer the rims I have now they suit the car so much better a tie in to the theme of the car more.

    I like the new alloys u got aswell...they look like 18s? what are they? I like the smiths dragons cos theyre original i guess, not seen anything like them.

    I suppose the alloys might look different in real life...I remember playing need for speed underground and totally loving the enkei arashi's...was convinced that they were the best looking alloys I could find, untill I saw them in real life (disapointing).

    lol, stupid of me to go by the looks of a game though...thats what happens when you play them too much, they look and feel like they're real (sorry going a bit off topic)...the one's in the game were 20"s though! on a skyline mmmmm

    oh and btw...what kit are these side skirts from??

    There Bk299's in 18"s.
    The dragon was a good wheel, it looked nice, and im suprised it never was more popular.
    I new there was a set at PVD from there old corsa but its now gone bump so no luck there., best bet is to do a search on the net to see what you can dig up and talk to smiths and see if they have any lurking around, when I spoke to them last asking if they woulf make them in 18"s they said they werent making them any more or had any but you never know your luck.
