  • Anyone know where I can buy a VXR alloy and minimum size for spare?

    As above really....

    Want to buy a spare alloy for my astra with tyre but everywhere seems to do them only in 4s. Also do I need a minimmum size due to the front discs?

    Cheers.

      any dealer will sell you one wheel separately. I do the 19" astra alloys at £260 delivered without tyre.

        Bang a tyre on and there you go....£350 for a spare. Bargain!

          A 19" wheel with a tyre fitted will fit in the spare wheel well, it does push the carpet up slightly

            As it'll only be for emergencies I want small (and cheap!) as possible! 17" would be fine!

              Would a 17" clear the brake callipers at the front?

                    Ha, this is the second time i've uploaded this picture onto a thread on this forum this week and the same question was asked in the other thread!

                    The foam box that holds the jack, towing eye etc is sat underneath now after some modifications with a stanly knife

                    I'll update my pic to show this later maybe!
