    Alloy wheels

    Hi Guys, hope someone will know the answer, did the Elegance come fitted with alloys as standard?

    I think they did, although the person who bought the car new might have opted out on the alloy option to make it cheaper..?

    Anyways, this is what the standard elegance alloys looked like on a corsa c

    Yeah I don't like them either. If you're going to get some alloys and looking st OEM style then SXi ones or try and get s set of Astra SRi alloys like what I have

    well i want to stay at the same size so it doesn't throw the speedo out, but am tempted just to save up and get a fully fitted set through a dealer

    That would be eyewateringly expensive.
    I got some second hand SXi alloys with decent tyres for 150.
    I wouldn't expect change from 1000 at a dealer.

    bought a set of TSW 15" multispokes for my escort a few years ago, 350 plus fitting

    I don't mean a generic set of vauxhall alloys from a vauxhall dealer, i mean a set of wolfrace or TSW etc etc

    IMO tsw or wolfrace wheels wouldn't look as good as oem wheels in good condition, there's a huge variety of vauxhall wheels such as cesaros, sxi wheels, meriva wheels, vectra b sri wheels, corsa c sri wheels, corsa d sxi wheels.. There's so many that would look good, and normally much smarter than aftermarket wheels. Obviously it's your car so your choice just letting you know how many options there are
