Wheels, Tyres, Brakes and Suspension
Right, the idea of this is for people to post up pictures of their wheels...
So please do the following:
Post up one or two (but no more) photo's clearly showing your wheels
Say what they are including size
What profile tyres you have on them
What colour they are painted (exact colour)...
To save answering the same question everyday...
There are 7 things you need to consider when buying alloy wheels:
Many members have sprayed their SRi alloys and i felt that a thread was needed didicated to them :D
for everyones tyre needs :yes:
The entire corsa range is PCD 4x100 - Excluding 1.7CDTi SRi
The 1.7CDTi SRi is PCD 5x110
Check here to see if wheels from different cars will be a straight fit.
can someone please tell me if the vectra carriers fit the corsa, or do i still have to get meriva vxr ones...
Looking for some advice on rear wheel spacers as I have recently purchased 2 differentt sets and they have both been wrong as they don't fit dlush on the hub. Any advice on where I can get them from?

Wondering if anyone has had a similar issue to the one I have with my corsa sxi 2005 which failed its MoT because the ABS warning lamp does not illuminate . The following has been tried to attempt to cure - checked fuses (all ok), swapped speedometer's with similar car to check if fault persisted...
After my last MOT, looks like I need to replace my driver side brake pipe.
I really would like to do this myself but do you think this is a garage one or easy enough ?
I saw a few on ebay like "This" what do you think ?
What profile tyres should i get? I'm wanting to change my tyres to r15/195s but not sure whether to get 55 or 50 profile as the differences are fairly minor

<br>Could anybody shed any light on the wheel pictured? I thought originally it was an early Astra GTE wheel but they are slightly different and an inch larger, this is a 14 inch 5 1/2J. I have seen them on early 90s Astras but if anybody knows and could tell me a little more it would be...
I need some help/advice on my 2004 Combo van, now i want to lower the van on springs as low as possible.
My van is on the standard 14" steel wheels so i was thinking about buying a set of 15" steels (or 16" if they are available?) and getting them powder coated in gloss black with low...
Just a quick question about tyres. I currently have 3 Michelin tyres (all the exact same model), 2 on the rear and 1 on the front, however the other 1 on the front is a different brand (Summerstar I think).

When ordering suspension parts for the corsa c it seems that there is different options for models with or without sport suspension.
M10 bolt for non sports, m14 for sports and an m12 one too.
I have a 2004 1.3 CDTI SXI.
a 10mm spanner wont fit on, a 12mm spanner is too big, an 11mm spanner...
Just wondering what the best tyres are for an SXI - I believe they are 15" alloys? Not too sure. Just wondering what the best tyres are for grip etc. Gotta replace a couple - May as well do the whole lot :D

Hi guys just wondering if anyone knows how much it is for a new handbrake cable I have a 2006 corsa c life
How many ABS sensors are actually on a Corsa?
I know there's 1 on each front wheel, are there some on the rear wheels too?
My problem is the ABS light randomly comes on. So bought a new one to replace the drivers side. But still appeared. So thought the old one must of been fine, and swapped...
Are the brake pad sizes between your standard c and Sri with 260mm discs the same?
Reason being I've just fitted a set of pads which fit the carrier and caliper fine but don't cover the same amount of disc surface as much as the old mintex ones did, holding the pads up to each other you can see a...
New to the car molding scene.. got my corsa c on coilovers and decided that I want a little camber but have no idea where to start? Does anyone offer the service on here? I seen one guy that does but he don't answer

My mechanic changed a back left side snapped handbrake cable for me but said I should get some small clips from a scrappies to stop the cable being metal on metal. Does anyone know what these are called or does anyone have a picture of one so I know what I'm looking for.
Does anyone know what size this is and what tool is needed to remove this? I've looked through various tutorials but that wasn't mentioned on there unfortunately
My stock are 185/55/15 which show 23.14"
195/45/16 show 23.02"
195/50/16 show 23.80"
The tyres i can get for the 195/50 are better than 195/45
Is there anyone with 195/50 and did you notice any issues or problems/difference in driving or braking or cornering
Also presume there's no...
Instead of buying a complete rear beam, has anyone converted their drum version ?
So yeah pretty much the title sums it up.
The old steely is 155/80R13 whilst the 4 new alloys are 185/55/R15.
Would this get me out of an emergency or should I purchase another wheel? Heard of these puncture repair kits as an alternative, not sure I would want to depend on one though :shock:
Will meriva 1.8 carriers fit corsa c 1.8 rear calipers?

Hi, son's Corsa 1.2 Breeze just lost brake pedal pressure and finally stops the car just before the pedal reaches the floor and pulls to the right as it stops. No evidence of a fluid leak anywhere, any suggestions as to the cause of this?
Hey guys this is my first post on here,
My problem has been ongoing for a while now, from what sounds like my front wheels a squeaking/screaching sound is coming from the tires or brakes I think. I'v ebeen told maybe a stone is trapped in the caliper but i highly doubt that's the issue as i...

I have had an ongoing problem for around 2 week's now.

A few weeks ago I started getting speed related noise which sounded like a bad bearing (noise stays the same when coasting in neutral).
There wasn't any play side to side or top to bottom on any wheel and no noise when spinning each wheel.
I jacked up the front right...
here are some pics, not great but found out after a noise lol that my n/s rear springs had gone then discovered the n/s front spring had also broke at the top so replaced all springs and shocks and top mounts at the front..no more creaking over speed bumps at last..already had done the track rods...

Just taken my son's 2004 1.2 SXi into the garage for inspection. Its possible to move the steering wheel backwards and forwards about an inch (as in pull towards the driver and push away from driver).
The garage says it needs a new steering column. Before I lighten myself of £350, can anybody...
I currently have 240mm brake discs they are solid discs and my car is a non abs model, I was wondering if I could fit 240mm vented discs
