2008 Astra XE
Default Winter Wheel Question

I've searched the forums and found a few threads about wheels that bolt right up. i'm looking to get a cheap set for winter tires.

Am I correct that the 5-lub wheels from the cobalt will bolt right up with no issues?

Same thing with Saab 9-3 wheels? same bolt battern and center bore, offset is a little different.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

All of those should work. Also 5-bolt Pontiac G5s & G6s, and Chevy Malibus and HHRs. The specs you're after are 5x110 with a 65mm bore.

CadiEldo67 had a set for sale a few months ago. He's in NY so you might want to fire off a Pmail to him.

the saab wheels didn't work out. The HHR wheels from the cabie work great. The offset is a little difference so the inside face of the wheel is closer to the caliper but there are no interference issues.

My Astra has been all suited up and ready for winter (snow tires and stuch) just waiting for snow.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
