    Anybody seen any coupe's with these wheels?

    I'm looking at alloys for the coupe. These have really caught my eye: http://www.katoracing.com/wheels_tsukuba.html

    Has anybody seen these on a coupe (preferably black)? If not, can anyone photoshop them onto a black coupe?

    Views on whether they suit the car are welcome too!

    Thanks guys!

    Lovely wheels, here's a pic to make it a bit easier for people, and quicker too!

    Just looking at the fitments, I'd be quite surprised if they come in the right fitment. They advertise them with an ET of either 28mm or 33, both a bit low for the astra. You want something closer to 49mm, that said you might get away with the 33mm with a bit of arch work. Assuming of course they come in 5x110mm stud pattern. Which I have to admit is unlikely given the offsets they advertise. Iw ould have thought it's going to be more the jap market.

    I hate to piss on your parade Hopefully if you contact them they will be able correct me!

    Lovely wheels, but IMO skinny spoked wheels do not suit the coupe, they need wide spokes, but that just my opinion.

    Ah didn't even think of that! Just goes to show how little I know about cars!

    Would these fit? http://www.topgear.co.uk/acatalog/4x...0_17_tyres.php

    Again, views are welcome

    Ideally I wouldn't want to have any work done, just fit them straight on and be finished.

    I don't know with those either, I would have thought you're more likely to get those in Vaux fitment, but I wouldn't wanna bet my bollocks on it. Your best bet is to call them or email them, when you click on buy it doesn't even say what fitments are available, it just says they'll call you if they need to. So a bit of a hit and hope if you ask me.

    No worries, hope you get it sorted out and find some wheels you like that fit.
