    iirc the offset of the omega rims is mid to late 30s - sum1 will no doubt confirm this.
    and yeah I think they'd look smart. how about the 17" rims off the omega elite/mv6 very nice

    Ah cool i think they look good, problem i have is do 18's look better on the cabby?

    I recall horizon autotech (possibly spelled wrong) having 18's on a black cabby and it looked the dogs danglies .
    Think it was lowered 30-40 mm

    or do i go for a set of 17" vauxhall wheels and slam the bollocks off it ?

    Please advise me as im a touch lost , mikey

    I'd say go with 18s and a 40mm drop. yeah u could go for 17s with a slightly bigger drop but not really ideal in my opinion. The arches on coupe & cabriolets are more forgiving than others so u can fit big uns no problem - 19s if u want! As I said Id go for 18s and normal 40mm drop.
    check out this link for more info regarding offset/rim width/drops etc.
    Hope this helps.
    No need to stick with Vx rims as long as u get the essential offset correct ur quids in!
