    You could get adaptor plates made to convert your car from 4x100 to 5x112. but you would be better off just buying the hubs from a 5 stud Astra (which will be 5x110) and then using wobbly bolts to fit the merc rims.

    No idea on cost, best getting the bits from a scrappy or speaking to Dannysport on here, he may be able to source them for you. You will also need new disc's of course, maybe the perfect time to upgrade to 308mm discs?

    Wobbly bolts can be got from eBay, about £25 for a set of 16 +around £30 for 4 wobbley lockers, (or if your not worried about security its about £30 for 20 bolts)

    nice one for the info mate, so if i got the hub conversion done, the merc wheels would just fit on just a bit staggered?

    im just a lil confused about wobbly bolts on how they work if you get what i mean

    Basically the PCD of the merc wheels is 2mm different to the PCD on the astra. A wobbly bolt allows for upto 3mm difference. Its just like a normal bolt, but the angled part is free to move sideways, so the bolt goes in, and the top part moves to get a good lock on the wheel. There is a video somewhere, will find it and post it.

    Video, shows what I mean about the top part being able to move. Technical name is corrective bolts, not wobbly - but that is what most people call them.
