  • vxr spare wheel

    hi guys what sort of wheel fits a vxr astra boot for a spare and does anybody know how much a new 19 inch alloy is cheers

  • #2
    A 19" wheel will fit in the spare wheel well




    It does push the boot carpet up slightly

    Second hand for a 19" wheel you're looking at £120 upwards depending on wheel condition, tyre or not, tyre condition..

    I think new wheels are circa £300 from Vaux

                Jack kit is in now, i just took that snap when i test fitted the wheel

                Space saver would be lighter, but i'd much rather have a full size spare so that if i did ever get a puncture I could be back on the road with the car 100% in... well as long as it takes to change a wheel

                  i know what you mean matey but remember that wheele weighs about 30kg i would say compare to a spacesaver!
