    New Wheels now on car

    Well after cearching for ages i finally found some Vectra sri alloys in 4 stud, Had them powder coated in white and finally got them fitted on the car today. Pics aint up to much but you get the idea. The center caps are still waiting for paint thats this weekends job.

    how do they look to small to be off a vectra SRi??

    They are 16" same as the 5 stud patterned ones

    not seen them on a astra mk4 look nice in white!

    Not many were in 4 stud, only the 1.6 and the 1.7TD's were. 256mm discs same as the astra g

    195/45R16 will be better mate, and your speedo wont be too far off either, that is what is on my Mk3 with 16" Corsa D SXi alloys
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    yup, if youre going down to a 40 profile you need to go up to 205 width to maintain a similar rolling radius or the speedo will be miles out
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
