On a Corsa C I reckon you'll be alright Chaz

Remember, the SRI rims are et40, so you're not far off. Maybe a lil work depending on how low you go, but shouldn't be too bad I reckon

Yes, SRi rims are et40 but also only 6.5" wide, the 17" oz rim is 7" and therefore needs to be at best et45, the wheel to be laithed but how much does this effect the strength of the wheel, nice rim btw...

modded_corsa is wrong, spacers push the wheels further out. Just think, how would u be able to buy sommit that makes the wheel sit further in the arch..... Its logical

Could get them machined to et45 or sumfin, might weaken the wheel tho.

I want them in 16's but anthracite
