  47. 4 stud to 5 stud hub conversion

    Hi. Has anyone done a 4 stud to 5 stud hub conversion, and if they have, was it difficult or expensive? Also, are the pcd, centre hole diameters and offsets the same for the corsa c and the astra h? Thanks.

  50. Wheels and lowering spring advise!

    Would my c be able to handle 17" wheels with 35mm lowering springs or would it rub constantly and **** it up?
