    Wheels

    OK, i'm ordering some wheels on monday. Just wondering if anyone knows exactly the what the spacing on the 4 stud astras? i thought it was 110mm. Also what do u all think: 17s and a 60/40 drop or 18s and a 35/35 drop. I still have to lug around alot of music gear so cant go to low lol

    Thanks guys,

    Jason

    I'd recommend sticking with 16's and 50/30 if your lugging around gear and up and down kerbs. I'm on 15's and don't have a problem with my 50/30 drop. But if you so have to then I'd recommend 17's and get a large profile to cushion you otherwise the ride may not be to your liking especially with music gear in the back as well. 50/30 I'd go absolute max.
    Its a jam thing

    The PCD question has already been answered but remember the all important offset as well.

    Check out this link for more details on wheel diameter/width and their respective offsets.

    As for lowering Id say a simple 40mm drop all round is max youd want to go on either 17s or 18s seeing as u regularly carry gear.

    Don't forget to ask about spigot rings as well when you order, your wheel supplier will know what they are.
