    What size tyre..

    are those of you with 18" rims on your Gsis running?

    Is it 235/40/18s or 225/40/18s?

    Thanks Andy.
    That means i can stick the ones i picked up today straight on without needing to change the tyres.

    The 18" snowflakes as fitted to the Astra / Zafira VXRs.

    Not planning on lowering this one given the hassle i had with the last one after i lowered it. Just plan to replace the saggy shocks with some Bilsteins from Eurocarparts. Hopefully the sale of the standard rims & tyres will generate enough funds to cover the cost of the replacement shocks.

    Are they going on a Zafira GSi? If so, then they will rub very slightly over bumps due to the wheel offset.

    Rears were fine when I had them fitted, just rubbed on the odd occasion on the front, and I had Bilsteins fitted at the time.
