    Changing alloy wheels and tyres

    Forum Key Rings
    Got vauxhall insignia sri, ecoflex, 65 plate, wanna upgrade alloy wheels to 18 innch, found those ones, but what putting me off to buy it is on 1st picture they are set of alloy wheels from insignia year 2008-2013 and on second picture they are set of alloy wheels from insignia year 2016. Which one should I go for and which one will fit my 65 plate? and also both coming without tyre pressure sensors, can I take sensors out from alloy wheels that I currently got on the car and put them into 18 innch? Or anybody got any good for sale for a good price?

    VAUXHALL INSIGNIA SET 4 18" ALLOY WHEELS AND 245/45/18 TYRES 5x120 2008-2013.

    Both will fit but the first ones (Elite wheels) look in poor condition with kerb rash

    As said both will fit.
    Your sensors can be taken out and fitted to the new wheels.

    The second one's look a lot better---if you can go for the one's that is in the best condition---sometimes you have to pay that bit more but it will be worth it-----Dave
