    Corsa Sri Wheels on an Astra G

    Hi,

    I'm currently looking into buying a set of 16" Corsa Sri alloy wheels to go onto my Astra G as they are a 4 stud pattern and i can't find any 4 stud alloys to my taste apart from these. I just need to find out if the measurements are the same as I would be keen on just swapping my tyres from my Sxi wheels. If someone could answer my question and possibly post up a few pics of an Astra G with Corsa Sri's on it that would be great

    Thanks

    The Corsa C SRi 4-stud wheel's will fit strait on. They are 6jx16

    The standard Corsa tyres are 195/45/16 so you ould be best to swap over the 205/50/16 tyres from your existing SXi alloys.

    Personally I would opt for some nice 17's Try and get some Corsa D SXi optional 17's or seom Tigra B 17's which both look nice on a Mk4.

    As for aftremarket wheels, go for some simple designs.... Have a look in the wheel gallery on the Mk4 Chassis section

    Are my alloys 6jx16? Do you know if the offset is the same? Also, Are the Corsa D SXi 17's and Tigra B 17's 4 stud? if so i'll look into it.

    Corsa rims are thinner than Astra ones, they'll look skinny fitted on an Astra.

    Less grip and will effect handling.

    IMO look else where.

    Mark said that the rim width / J measurement for the Sri wheels are 6J. Do you know what the astra rim width would be. If they are any less then i agree as my tyres aren't completely flush on the rims i have now.

    Appolgies, i was wrong.

    Just checked on the EPC, the 16" Astra alloys are 6J too.

    Oh they are. When you said about it affecting handling
    and grip i almost gave up on looking lol. I know there
    not to everyones taste but my budget is around £300
    and the SXi wheels aren't to my taste. Ill look at those
    Penta's although im sure they'll be out of my price range
    thanks for the advice guys im going to keep my I on Ebay
    for a set. Ill get some pics up when i get some time.
