    Get friendly with your local parts dept. I got my 18" wheel for £160 + Vat

    The jack is £30ish, the brace is £6ish and the polystyrene carrier is £6ish at retail, obviously less as per above.

    The Astra fits an 18 in the wheel well with Conti tyre so I would imagine the Vectra could take the same size wheel?

    There where some 18's on Ebay with the same shape as the 19's not sure if they will fit in de ole but may be worth a look.

    I think they where £650 for 4 with tyres and you only need a cheap o tyre to get you home.

    Worth a look

    That'll only fit on the rear due to the front discs but better than nothing I guess....remember you'll also need a jack!

    Another way...have you thought about a space saver from an SRI?

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    Unfortunately nothing in the 'trade' section.

    As I'm on last years (06) model 18"s...it'd rule out a group purchase for me.

    Interestingly, Vauxhall's price for a rim was £260 (inc) but I'd get 10% off that so it'd come in ~£235.

    Maybe I'm just out of touch with the price of these things!

    Haybailer,

    A seller on Ebay is flogging them (brand new, but I'm not sure if its boxed or so) for £244.00 plus £5 P&P or a set of 4 for £974.99 plus £10 P&P.

    Anyone one for a group buy on a set of 4?

    I would be interested in getting a "spare" :wink:

    Spare wheel...or rather the lack of...

    Could anyone point me in the right direction for a competively priced wheel (to match the others!)?

    I know I can get one from Vauxhall, but they do seem a tad costly....maybe they are sole suppliers?

    I was wondering if any of the sites associated with this one could supply single wheels...or does anyone have one hangin' around that they don't need??!

    It didn't seem a problem when I got the car; just to have an inflation kit. However the more I drive it the more it concerns me.....after having my fair share of punctures over the last 25yrs I'd feel a bit daft standing by the roadside waiting for assistance.

    Compliments of season.....
Working...
