    Sport Hatch sxi Alloys

    Robbed my sisters sports hatch for a few days while i sort mine out ( first chance to get a pic of it ) but why did vauxhall design these alloys they look awful, think they ruin the look of the car.

    Totally agree with you - they really do look like ass. Poor show, Ronal.

    Although, that said they might look OK black...

    They're not a bad looking rim - just a that the design does not work on a rim that small.

    If they made them in 17's, and didn't just scale the wheel up, then it would ok. It needs a longer tail in the Y spokes to look good.

    They're just a mini version of the 19s you see on Vectras, but the design doesn't work scaled down like that. There is a pic of a convertible on here somewhere with the same rims, but I can't find it to show you the ones I mean.

    Thought it was a five door till i looked closer, those rims really do nothing for the car and make it look very ordinary. Ok for the mrs if she was using it as a shopping trolly but not for me.
