    Swapping Alloys from Mk3 to Mk4

    Currently own a Mk3 Astra 1.6 estate - has stock Vauxhall alloys on.
    Just buying a Mk4 Astra 1.6 estate without alloys. Wondered if I can do a straight swap of wheels between the Mk3 and the Mk4 and what extras would be needed. Any advice for a newbie would be great.

    Hi there, welcome to AOC!

    The wheels are a direct fit fitment wise (assuming they are both 4 stud). What size are they? And what size tyres are they?

    Providing the Mk4 uses 4 stud hubs (which it will do being a 1.6) then you'll be relieved to know it'll be a straight swap!

    Welcome to AOC by the way - feel free to post up some pics of your new motor and ur current mk3 if u wish.

    If u feel the mk3 alloys look dated on the mk4 - theres plenty of rims available on the 2nd hand market which will do the job.
