    Wheel question

    Im after a set of 4 steel wheels so i can fit some winter tyres for when the snow and ice comes around. Iv looked at a few options but come accross these on ebay.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...ms_Car_Rims_ET

    From what Iv seen at dealerships some cars are delivered with these steelies fitted and are then replaced with alloys before being sold. Any idea what they do with these steelies afterwards?

    That is correct, they are called structure wheels....

    The hub cap part looks like an alloy wheel.



    Why not pick up a set of 16" alloys...? I ahve soem available but you are a little too far from me

    Ah right. I knew they came on Vectra's but was nt sure if they were used as delivery wheels as well. We'll see what else is about first.
