          i bought a second hand 17 inch one from the scrap yard.i think that is the smallest size that will go over the brake calipers.cost me £20 including a not bad tyre.would get you to kwik fit to get the orignal one fixed/changed

            I have my old vectra sri 17" alloy as a spare. Size wise you need a PCD off 5x110 and an offset of around 35-38 ....

              IIRC checking out the videos from the FHM Driver of the year,
              ... where they did reverse handbrake / J turns....


              the Astra VXRs definately did not run 18's or 19's....
              Maybe Stu/Dougie could help us out to confirm??

                was that the 05 event?
                if so no astra VXR's were used only sports hatches, the concept VXR was present.
                06 event, no idea as havent seen any footage.

                  just thought i would let you no, just bought a vxr not to happy about no spare wheel so dealer tried different wheels.found that a 16inch space saver wheel did fit it, but only on rear of car.so got that and also had slightly larger tyre put on 135/90r16 so car stays fairly level when you put it on.hope this is a help......................

                    With the space saver having a bigger tyre, does it fit into the compartment in the boot and did you buy a jack from vauxhall or one from local car accessory shop?

                        The 18" VXR wheel fits in the wheel well and just lifts the carpet an inch or so - but this was the case on my Vectra GSi and other vauxhalls I've owned so no complaints.

                          the wheel does fit into space provided,just.the jack and wheel brace was supplied by the dealer.
