    Wheels on my car with different offsets

    I have 17 inch wheels on my astra G with a ET37 off set, I have been offered the exact same wheels but they are et45 and were on an EK Honda Civic, will it be ok fitting and running on them???

    I think that the centre bore may be different on the honda's.....
    ..in which case you would need new spigot rings.


    As for different offsets.....keep the same offsets on the same axle....

    ive just fitted some honda accord alloys (tsw) to my astra g , ive bought some spiggots from halfrauds and there all ok now i got the correct ppiggot kit £ 20 and they chuck in the bolts aswell , dont use the vauxhall wheel bolts as the taper is different and your wheels will come off while driving

    spigot rings are plastic/metal rings that fit in the centre of the alloy wheel (at the back) that make the wheel sit central on the car hub.

    car hub that the wheel sits on (to keep wheel central) is a different size between vauxhall and honda.
