    What kinda work to get these to fit...

    Alloys...

    18x8.5 and ET 30...

    would these ever fit the astra 3 door hatch with a 50/30 drop?? would the offset make it look strange?

    after rolling the arches, moving the bumper bracket, removing arch lining...

    any chance?

    like you say you would have to do a lot of work with the arches.
    I think it would look great from the back as it sits on the road nicely, but they would stick out too much. Which i think is actually illegal if extreme? I think it would be quite eurostylee.

    Alot of "would it fit issues" would all be down to the tyrews i reckon, youd have to have like 30 profile. and i bet it would rub with like 2 people in the car anyway. lol

    would it be 245s? 265s? tyres...seems that the 40 profile are a decent price...30/35 is expensive!

    its just a thought...i lubbb the rims in the for sale section...maybe too much work though

    well i just changed my tyres because they were wrong.

    And on a standard SRi (20mm) drop the 225/45's I had rubbed with 1 person in the back...lol

    so i dont think its worth trying dude. haha You would indeed probably need 255's i reckon.
