Lol. Vauxhall define their models by letters. I think b and c is ~95 - 04??

Why would you want to use them on track?
 
Iirc center bore for corsa wheel fitment is 56.6 and clio's are 60.1. Corsa wheels won't fit without being bored out to fit correctly. PCD are the same though (4x100).

If I were you go for a renault fitment wheel like the scenic or megane, would be an easier option.

ahhhhhh right lol, still not 100% sure, but you are saying vauxhall corsa steelies from 95-04 will fit? regarding track use, just interested to know if they are any good, i'm presuming its a big NO!? was just thinking to keep costs down, although i have just put 4 hankook rs2 's on my turini's, but i dont want to ruin them :eek:

Yes - Will allow no where near enough cool air to your brakes.

roger that, but surely some wheels such as turbines/19 16v alloys etc have similar spacing in that respect? i am also thinking of some cheap track wheels such as these <<<<<

Yeah they should fit as long as they are 15''+ anything smaller won't fit over the RS brake calipers.

cheers for that :)

Bill if you want 15 steelies in the right offset then souce some willy steelies..

Any other steelies you get will reduce the overall offset but wouldn't matter over winter.


I didn't think using steelies was wrong on track? how do the 106 rallyes go on?

are valver steelies different to willy ones? cant remember for s**t!

good point on the 106 rallyes, anyone care to explain? my thoughts was they are to heavy? but does it really make that much of a differance?

If you look at the turbines they are grooved - IE when the wheel spins it draws air in, like a fan. Thats what i've read on here anyway.

willy ones are wider that valver ones although not by a huge amount.
