  • Well I finally give in with these VXR wheels...

    As title!

    I've just had the call from the tyre shop and my latest two "slow punctures" are surprise surprise cracked alloys again!

    **** it I can't be bothered with the highly sought after VXR alloy anymore I can't find any for cheap anywhere so I'm on the look out for some new 19" alloys. The aftermarket ones simply can not be as weak and brittle as the vauxhall shat.

    Any recommendations? Link would be good. I'm half tempted by the VXR copies but quite like these clicky or these copies clicky What you think?

    That's three alloys and five tyres this year alone!!!! ******* sick as...

          18" Pro Race 1.2 is the future.

          Cheap tyres
          Strong Castings
          Lightweight
          Wider track

          better better better in all areas (except the big wheel look)

                  Cheers for the replies..

                  I'd like to keep 19" for two reasons first I have two brand new conti 3's and two less than two month old so obviously I want to use them. Second I just find 18" look a little lost in the Vectra arch and I must say this is just a personal thing not a dig at anyone. Happs I'd love your wheels but I feel within minutes of fitting them they'd be destroyed on the road around here...

                  I had a quick look at Mandy VXR's wheels look real nice but I'm not sold on the colour for my car. So as I and a few of you like the look of the first one in the links I think I'll order a set up. After all they come in for less than the cost of replacing the two cracked VXR ones!

                      The first alloys ( Irmy Evostar 19" for Antara) dosen´t fit bolrpattern with the Veccy.. Antara´s are 5/115 and vecccy´s are 5/110, Not even wobbly bolts can do the trick here.. Sorry.
                      I have had a set of 20" Irmy Evostars and they also cracked..
