    which mk is it?

    thread mentions tyres (albeit the American spelling ) yet post says alloys....

    which we talking about exactly?

    19" is usually the maximum common alloy size with 215.35.19 being used on the mk4 and 235.35.19 on the mk5

    20" and above is possible but will need arch mods and other work to fit

    214 40 17 tyres are whats advised. (ive just ordered some)
    Ive just got a set of Vectra C SRI alloys with 215 50 17 tyres and they rub on the front archs.

    But it is lowered 120mm on the front lol

    I belive thats what the astra mk4 gsi tyre size is.
    Ive got the info from rochester tyres web site which has a wheel selector on there.
    You basicly put the make and model car you have and if its four or five stud, then it gives you a tyre option with tyre sizes suitable for that model.
    Its quite handy.
