    Astra H - Which alloys?

    Hi there, I'm hoping somebody on the forum will help me as an amateur who just wants to upgrade my alloys for aesthetic purposes! I have a Astra H (Club - 1.6 16v twinport) in black with the standard alloys (4 stud) on it. I need to get new tyres so fancy getting some different alloys on it. I don't really know where to start ie. which size would be best, where is a good place to buy online, what brands to looks at, which to avoid etc.

    In terms of styling, I like this type: http://www.scarbro-racing.co.uk/imag...ilver_side.jpg

    And the 18" Corsa VXR snowflake ones - how much are these new?

    What I am looking for is something which will be not too expensive, simple to fit and wouldn't need any/much readjustments.

    if you stick to OEM Vauxhall alloys youll be pretty safe, (so long as its 5 stud or 4 stud and you get the right ones)
    Ebay and forums are your best bet, as a rule 18" alloys go for £300-£550

    Thanks! I am really looking to buy them brand new and get the new tyres at the same time. But I think the nice OEM ones are v expensive new?

    These are pretty nice. Any pics of them on an Astra?

    What tyres would I need for 17 or 18" alloys, and would they need to be fitted differently to the ones that are on it currently (195/65 R15 91).
