    pic request: 17" wheels with no lowering (MK4)

    I could get 17" wheels with 205/45 tyres very cheaply, but what would they look like on a not lowered Astra?

    I assume this is on your elegance? If so it will look very very high, looks better with the sport/sxi/sri suspension but even then can still be a bit high.

    Pretty sure SXI's are 20mm lower than Elegance models

    This was how i bought mine - 205/40/17's (off a corsa i suspect?!) Looked gash & drove even worse so @ the min im rolling on these bad boys!

    1'000'000 times better handling & comfort imo!!!

    Hmm... not bad, but would definitely look better with little lowering
