Hi. I've just seen some sweet 15inch alloys+tyres second hand that have come off a VW Golf MK2.

They are FOX 5 spoke with 195/50/15

Will they fit a 1994 corsa SRi? I won't be lowering it so will the offset be a problem?

Cheers

Golf offset is ET38mm - 11mm less than Corsa. This means wheels will sit 11mm further out than your current rims. Almost certainly no rubbing probs, but may affect handling a little for the worse

Does this mean that I can get these alloys and they will be fine and legal apart from a little performance decrease? Would they look stupid sticking out? Sorry for theses stupid questions, but I have no idea about wheel related stuff!

Won't be lowering it at all.

I have them on mine and they don't look TOO bad. Kinda wide I'll admit but hey

i have 17s with offset of ET37 n they dont stick out from the arches. also lowered 35mm and only rubs with ppl in back
personally think it looks better with the slightly wider wheel distance as makes whole car look wider
