That's better with the photos.
Looks good.

Question - How much was is lowered?
Also - if you added new tyres - add a comment about brand, size etc to help others as well.
Thanks.

Default Wheels

I would be interested in buying the wheels you took off if you want to get rid of them. I need to know what size they are

They are VAUXHALL CORSA D 18 " VXR which I ordered on ebay from an company in Australia.

They are the stock wheels that come on the Opel's.


See attached.... I bought saab aftermarket center caps and stickers since these wheels look like they should have came on the saab from the factory...

I thought they looked like a pattern I've seen somewhere:
https://www.saab-93-ss.nl/index.php/...-3-info/wheels
Very similar to the 18" 5 spoke claw - in a odd way.
Still - They look good.
