    Not sure on astras mate but i know mercedes use different bolts for the steel wheel than an alloy, this is because the alloy is thicker and need a longer bolt! the alloy bolts with the steelies will go in to deep! thats why mercedes steel spares come with its own set of bolts!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
