Hi everyone, completely new to the world of car modding and this site lol. I am looking to get some alloys for my 06 Astra SXI they need to be a 5 stud fitting. My question is what is the recommended in terms of diameter i was looking at getting a set of 18" Dezent motion 2's just don't want to get them too big would 17's be better??

Regards,
Chris.

Ha ha It's my opinion! Depends if you have an xp or other kit fitted! I think mine looks high on 17s without any kit!

Cheers mate they will fit then no problems like rubbing or anything like that? I was told they might be too big but guy probably didn't know what he was on about. Yeah the springs should lower it around 30mm i think.

I don't hear any VXR owners complaining about rubbing. They come with 19's as standard ;)

well that's what i thought, my mate has an SRI with 18's no problem just like i say spoke to this guy and he was going on about not getting a full lock on the steering without rubbing etc and being a noob i wasn't sure haha.

Cheers,
Chris.
