    They fit on my MK4 SXi OK. They might rub a little - going for 45 profile tyres I went for a 205 width to ease things a little, if you go for a 40 profile (assuming 17"?) then things will probably be better with a 215 width.

    Ffoeg and others have 215/45/17's on an ET35 rim which rubs on the inner arch lining at the rear over big bumps, but nothing major.

    Rear bumper brackets on the cab and coupe might need shaving down alittle. No biggie tbh.

    They are BK 299's or something like that ?

    Do it mate. I had ET35's on my old hatch,, lowered 30mm and had no problems whatsoever.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
