my dad needed a new tyre for his astra sxi, but they changed the design, and he couldn't get one. So he had to get one of the last ones available in the coutry couriered to the dealer where they changed it ! Cost a fortune.

- So pretty good that the tyre on the spare (on the corsa) is usable on the alloy too..

Probably doesn't help you tho !
