    Exclamation Quick question about wheels!

    Hi there, appologies for sounding stupid but I need to know whether my car is 4 stud or 5 stud, and if possible what the current wheel size is on my car?

    It's just got the standard wheels on that came with the car at the moment, but planning on getting something snazzy tomorrow.

    Here's a photo if it helps - http://www.digi-matrix.co.uk/astra.jpg

    Many thanks for your expertise.

    take the wheel trims off and look how many wheel bolts are holding on the wheel...4 or 5..that will tell you what your car is,,and the size of your tyres will be written on the side..eg 185/60/16.. cant tell either from your picture.

    OR just see my previous post!

    as for wheel size it'll be 15 or 16" and the give away will be the last number on the tyre size

    195/60/15 or 205/50/16 for example

    no need to get ur hands dirty at all - just read the markings on the tyre wall


    if its a 1.6 like i said then its a 4 stud end of
