    Re: 95 1.9TiD Hirsch Upgrade

    Thanks

    It's the 150 - I think that's the only one available on the 95?

    95 offset should be 49 too, so as long a centre bore OK should be fine. Someone else on forum had problem with ASTRA wheels becasue of bore, but think that Vectra wheels should be fine.

    Does it go down after that?

    On my previous car - 2.0t - the guage never moved until I'd done about 100 miles if filled to the brim. Guess this would be further for a TiD?
