    MK4 GSi wheel suggestion

    Looking for some new wheels suggestions for the GSi. Given the Fullrun remoulds are due for the bin and the wheels on it need refurbed Im thinking about just taking the opportunity to replace the wheels for something else, probably in an 18" with the thoughts to upping the brake size in the future. suggestions welcome, along with pics.

    Bearing in mind what your going to do with it track wise. Something light and with a decent spoke setup/offset to clear calipers with the larger brakes

    The idea had been to strip the car out, cage paint it white etc. but in all honesty that ideas been shelved as a) I really cant be arsed b) the car was bought a a cheap shitter to do it on, unfortunately the car is far to good bodywise etc. to do it with (with the exception of a small ding and a front bumper that needs painted the car is basiclly spot on).

    A51M - ****in hell dude, their going on a MK4 astra thats going on the Nurburgring, not a Hummer cruising up and down Hollywood Boulevarde with pimp tunes playing.

    How about some Speedline wheels for that MOtorsport Look, either multispoke or chunky 5 spokes...?

    You could always whip off the Mistrals from your ST200

    If its for road use maybe Irmscher Stila or Evo star's or the optional 18's on the Signum/Vectra C, they are ET49 offset BTW
