2008 Astra XR
Default Winter wheel swap?

My daughter’s 2008 Astra 3 door XR came with the 17” alloy 10-spoke wheels and P225/45R17 all performance season tires. Also, it came with a set of steel wheels with P205/55R16 winter tires.

I need to replace the steel rims when I put on new winter tires for next year since they are badly rusted. I have the opportunity to buy a used set of the Saturn 16” alloy twin spoke wheels - does anyone know if they will fit on the 2008 Astra 3 door?

I believe you are referring to the 16" alloy twin spoke wheel, standard on the XR5 and optional on the XE5. As far as I know they will fit your Astra 3 door.

Thank you Paul. I think they should too but I had little experience with Saturn cars until my daughter wanted one. This web site has really been helpful with support from members such as yourself.
