    wheels

    My MOT was due and I knew the tyres were getting a bit close to the mark so I thought I'd slap on some fresh rubber which were already mounted on some Astra H/Zaf B 5 spoke rims.
    These wheels/tyres have been buried in my garage for an eternity but now can put them to good use for two reasons:-

    1. satisfy Mr MOT tester
    2. give me time to re-lacquer my snowflake alloys which I refurbed a couple of years ago.

    I've had these wheels on briefly in the past and couldn't work out is I liked them or not and I still can't decide!
    Anyways, they won't be staying on but I thought I'd post a pic in case anyone here was considering fitting these wheels.





    They would deffo look better in 18"
    Out of interest, what do you guys think?

    I think they look good, but as you say, the 18's would look better.

    I like them. There's not many wheels that suit the Zafira.

    I have to say, the wheels are growing on me (probably cos they are mint, shiney and clad in tyres with deep treads) but they deffo look smaller than the snowflakes.
    Due to the offset of these, it looks as if i may be able to squeeze my Brebo brakes on underneath, which would be nice!
