    Alloys are very easy to change mate!

    Best place is the internet, just google alloys or search on ebay, or if your lucky somebody might be selling a set on here!

    If you want 16's id go for the vauxhall snowflakes, but you could get 18's on your car without any problems!

    Just make sure you check how many studs they are before you buy!

    As said already you can fit 18s, or even 19s no problem if they are 5 stud.

    you need to check your car. Look if your wheel is held on with 4 or 5 bolts

    cant find much online for the snowflakes

    recommend anything else?

    is fitting them as easy as replacing a normal steel wheel?

    yes just a case of switching them over ... once you find how many studs you need to find what the PCD (pitch circular diameter) is for an astra you need 4x100 for 4 studd pretty sure its 5x108 on 5 stud not sure though. once you find a set you then need to make sure the centre bore is the same astras is 59.something i think but you can get spiggot rings to adapt no problem. and you are more likely to get 17" alloys easier IMO a set of 5 spokes suit astras or a set of multispokes so kei force 10's etc ... hth

    Get some 17" SRi alloys, or 18" Pentas, they will look sweet.

    I think they will be 5 stud wont they? I thought all new astras are 5 stud now?
