    17" alloys on a 1995 estate?

    Just been offered some 17" alloys for my 1995 Astra Merit estate. They're fitted with 205/40 tyres... would I need any arch mods or will they fit?

    Just been offered a different set. 205/40/17 with ET40... what offsets do I need to be looking for?

    Would prefer 16" alloys but can't get hold of any... would I need the same offset as 17's if I go with 16's?

    Sorry for all the questions

    at the top of my head th 37 will be very close indeed. most likley to need the arch trimming, et 40 would be ideal for looks and fit
    I would say keep to a max of a 38 to a 45

    et35 usualyy go on fine, mk3 astra's and cav's are far more forgiving than nova's and corsa's, i've got 3 mk3 astra's on 17's. all lowered 60mm and et is less than 38mm.
