  • 19" wheels

    When you put the 19" upgrade wheels on the astra vxr does it make it so you can feel/hear all the grids and repairs in the road?or is it down to the suspension being hard?thanks.

      It's more the suspension than anything else.

      Is there a difference between the 18's and 19's regarding noise etc? Yes

      Is it a big one? No
      Sold - Arden Blue Astra VXR on 19's
      Ordered - Pure White Golf GTI on 18's (couldn't stomach paying for 19" tyres any more!)

        i think its down to the vxr race suspention because its very firm for hi speeds thats why when your doing 70mph it feels like your doing 30mph.

          In a way yes, because the tyres are a very low profile. But the suspension is stiffer than the standard cars among other things.

            I much prefer the quality of the ride / noise with the 18`s on, but there is no denying the 19`s look stunning, but with a compramise ... I am considering putting 19`s on again, so certainly hasn`t put me off completely ...
