No as long as the alloys are the same size as your current wheels ie 14, 15 or 16 inch etc - there's some good deals out there which include tyres so worth shopping around.

Only if you get different size alloys from the steels you have.

You do have to inform your insurance company though!


how much do you think the insurance would go up?

Wrong. They are can be 16" but require low profile tires which are expensive.

What car is it? You'd probably want bigger alloys.

Bad advice, that could leave the OP without valid insurance and all of the serious consequences that entails.

If its a new car you might as well declare the alloys. I do not have a clue about about which alloys suit the new corsa.

It's a car, no?

Try and get some OEM alloys if you can - the majority of aftermarket alloys available for such cars scream pure chav.

Good idea, some of the ones available in Halfrauds are hideous. Well worth checking fleabay for a used pair, will be much cheaper and should be plentiful. Currently looking for a set for my BMW.

a set of alloys for a corsa just scream 17year old virgin. Unless your going for stock alloys in which case its fine.

My insurance co, added £30 to the annual premium when I upgraded my alloys to 19" prodrives, kept the old ones, which I put winter tyres on and use from October to march ish.

As others have said this is very bad advice - not informing the insurance company of any changes can make the policy invalid, obviously the insurance companies want to wriggle out of paying for a claim wherever possible. If the car is crashed it's highly unlikely it's going to be possible to swap the wheels back.

As for different tyres, alloy wheels tend to be larger than the original steel wheels (depending on model) which does unfortunately mean new tyres as well.
