I just bought a 2007 Astra Estate. The summer wheels are 16" original 10(?) spoke alloys, which are quite boring both in size and looks. I'm thinking about upgrading to 17 or possibly 18" (snowflake or VXR/BK999-type). However, I'm not particularly happy about lowering the car. I'm a abit afraid that the car will look strange with large wheels without lowering it (in particular 18"). Anyone got pictures of an Astra H (preferably Estate, but anything will do) with 17 or 18" wheels without lowering?
Will fitting 225 wide tires make any noticeable difference in terms of bumpy ride or tracking(don't know if it's the correct word, but the feeling that the car is steering on its own on uneven roads).
