    what wheels do i have...

    may seem a strange question, but i have had my 05 MK5 SRI for around 4 months now, new to astra ownership, and have been told my wheels are from 3 different types of vauxhall.

    So my question is are the wheels standard or not?



    cheers

    cheers mate. well sold my subaru for the astra due to having a son...so at first No would have been the answer...that said and spending a little time on here....think that will be changing soon. Nothing to major as she will still be the "family car" but some subtle styling changes are planned along with the odd play under the bonnet lol

    i like black/red for some reason. so at the mo have red calipers, red mud flaps fitted and have started to colour code the interior black/red. the list is long but the bank balance isnt!!!

    As mentioned they are one of the 18" optional upgrade wheels that were available on any Astra H, but were part of the styling XP pack kit so are commonly seen on the Astra SRi XP (which has the front skirts, side skirts and rear skirt).

    Have a read

    https://www.gmproductforum.co.uk/articles/2490.pdf

    The wheel style name is Penta's and were available on the Astra, Zafira in 18" 5-stud fitment, 17" 5-stud fitment on the Corsa D SRi and lastly 17" 4-stud fitment on the Tigra B
