    Astra G on 19" alloys

    Im still awaiting my arch tools to turn up but decided to stick all the wheels on this morning, What do you guys think?



    They are 19" Kosei racing alloys, its lowered approx 120mm on the front and 60mm on the back with coilovers.

    Once the rears are rolled there will be no problems there and I might be able to drop it another 10mm with luck.

    The fronts are a different story though, Im going to have raise it a bit by the looks of things, but Im going to try to roll then flair the fronts a bit to get more clearence.

    The stace looks really really high mate still IMO sorry
    even thoughfront arch clearence is tight it still got that off road appeal to me , maybe a more subtle less chunky wheel will compliment it more

    good work though in aiming for 19s

    Thanks for the replies, I must admit Im not that keen as the do stick out a bit too much. and do look way too big.

    I was considering having 19" on the rear and 18" on the front and getting it lower.
    It might look better when the GSI bumpers got on along with the irmscher skirts.

    Ive not been able to fit the big brakes I have yet, this is due to only having 16" wheels at the moment.

    Im just trying to picture it with the stuff on to decide if it will work

    But for a set of wheels that where given to me, I cant moan too much, I still really want the Penta alloys

    my coupes on 19" VXRs, but those wheels look huge. I think its just an optical illusion with the amount of space between the spokes making the wheels look bigger than they are, along with the spokes going direct to the lip of the alloy.

    Maybe a bigger bumper would put everything in proportion. Just keep playing away with it and go with your own instincts

    That one reason I liked them, the spoke do go right to the edge and make them look bigger than they are.

    I picked these ones last time for the same reason

    These are only 18" alloys ikon+ wheels

    Ive been offered a deal on a set of Vectra C SRI alloys plus £250 cash so I tihnk im going to do that for now.

    Then just hold out for the Pentas I want. At least I can still fit the brakes.

    By the way, Im going to stick the 16" SRI alloys up for sale today, so if your interested in them let me know.
