Simple poll for you based on these pics! Been looking for a replacement for the SXi's for a while now, and came across these beasties potentially being sold for the right price.

The wheels are Porsche D90's that have been polished etc. Come with the adapters and a newish set of Pirelli P-Zero Nero Tyres in a 195/40/16.

I'm going round for a second fit another night where I can play with the rear suspension and raise it up a bit. The problem lies with the fronts at the moment and if they'll rip off my freshly painted arches ! Will see what happens when I fit them again.

Here's the pics:











Let me know your comments, and vote in the Poll. I haven't parted with the cash yet!

Cheers

i know there alloys but they look a bit 'hub-cappy' for me.

just my opinion though, i reckon other alloys.

Do look good, but last pic looks like the front is sticking out a fair whack. Have you tried driving it?

Can you not get a narrower tyre for the front Phil? a 165/50 16 would stop the potential rubbing issues.

Not too keen on that tbh. I'm not sure why, I love them on Sportyboy's and I seem to remember seeing another Corsa with them, but not sure about em on your car

No, this was just fitting it. I literally put them on to see what they looked like. I can see the front doesn't fit at the moment, but I know it can be done. The adapter is 20mm at the moment, and was meant for a VW Polo. I have been told that the wheel is ET53, plus the 20mm adapter would make it ET33. Ideally I need to lose 10mm somewhere
