    what are the widest 15" 5 stud wheels?

    As above? What are the widest wheels in 15" x 5 stud pattern that VX made, I am thinking maybe the old Carlton steel and alloy wheels. I need at least 8" wide, if anyone knows of a wider wheel please let me know, steel preferred

    Could you not get the standard 15"s made wider, like the guys do for the euro style banded ones?

    yeah like these, check out how wide the rear is.

    Not sure where you could get them made or how safe they are. *Edit* check these people out http://www.wide-wheels.co.uk/

    Place in huddersfield do them. Not sure if they did corsa above as thats local too. I imagine they are pretty good as they are seam welded together.

    But you shouldn't be doing 150mph on uk roads...and I wouldnt fancy going that speed on stretched rubber either

    I'm guessing he wants them for 1/4 mile and or track days. No one mentioned road use or using stretched tyres. Wider wheels means wider rubber, so more grip

    yes they are for my MK3 Astra that I intend doing 150 down the drag strip in. Super safe is what I need and very wide for maximum rubber on the tarmac. Looking to run proper flexi walled drag tyres and they start at 8" width. If I can get 10" or 12" that would be the best thing
