2008 Astra XE
Default Just Bought an 08 Astra! (have a question)

Hey, just wanted to say hi to the forums. I just (earlier today) traded in my Protege5 for an 08 Saturn Astra XE 5dr 5sp manual. Love the car so far. I've found forums useful in the past for various maintenance and repair problems.

I do have 1 question though: I found a set of steel Saturn Aura wheels on CL for cheap. I'll need a second set for the winter. Will these wheels bolt up with no problems? i know they have the same bolt pattern, not sure about offset

Bolt pattern and offset are identical, but the TPMS sensors won't work with our cars.

I just put a set up for sale but I'm in the Rochester NY area and I think that shipping will be a deal killer.

yeah...shipping from NY to MN would suck. Found a set of 16" aura steel wheels for $95 on Craigslist. Probably going to pick them up for a winter set.
