    The wheels will fit, but you'll need new tyres.

    Vectra's use 215/50R17, Astra's need 215/45R17 or 215/40R17

    also the one pictured looks a bit scuffed

    they are a tad scuffed but for what im paying it doesnt fuss me as i can get them refurbished.

    they are Vectra GSI rims, if they dont fit with the tyres which are on ill simply sell them on as the tyres are brand new on them, and im not removing new tyres to fit more

    i reckon with some fine detailing these rims will fit no probs. ive rebuolt arches around alloys before (15's on a VVC metro Bloody hard work) so this will be a doddle

    pick them up tmrw hopefully,. hope theyre not to scuffed but if so theyll be going a dark colour

    My Bad, sorry, the tyre sizes ^^^up there were Veccy C size. Forgot these are Veccy B. They will fit fine, with no mods required.
