    Astra G on 13's

    Hello guys,

    Looking for the Newbie section to post an intro but until i find my way i'll fire a question out there.

    I've an astra at the yard that i'm starting to build. I'm waiting on some raceland coilovers. I'm already looking to drop to 14's BUT i also have a corsa in the yard that i'm thinking of taking the disc and calipers off and transfering to the astra. Will i need more? I have a whole car anyway so parts are there.

    Now the real question...... has anyone a picture of a G on 13's? I'm aware of sump issues. Have a mate who'll make me up a steel plate to protect the underside of it. He runs a very successful company called precision engineering so i'd be very trusting it'll all be well guarded.

    Obviously once i've done the swap and get wheels on it i'll upgrade the braking system to suit.

    So will it work?

    Thanks,
    Keith.

    ive never seen a G on 13" but im im sure it could be done

    i think 14" is the smallest you will get off any of the vauxhall range though

    If you can put 13's on it how are you going to upgrade the brakes ? , because putting 13's on is going to restrict you severely as to what you can or should I say can't do as you have no room inside the wheel

    As above, running 13's seriously limits what brakes will fit behind them. Will look great if done right, but a few things to think about

    it'll not go fast enough to need brakes, maybe an anchor on a rope

    Guys theres about 20million corsa's competing in rally events and the likes, i'm sure theres an upgrade somewhere, upgrade doesn't have to mean bigger just better stopping power. Yeh the smallest astra wheel would be a 14" but aftermarket will be where to look.

    As above, euro and low.
