    I'm looking (on behalf of someone else) for a spare alloy for a
    Vauxhall Astra DTi (2001) - unfortunately I don't see sizes, or don't
    understand, what's written on the existing tyres. Could someone assist
    a complete idiot in finding a spare please? I don't wish to buy a set
    though. Basically I need to know how to gather the information to
    go find one. I have photos, details of what's written on existing
    tyres, uk reg certificate with all motor details on it.

    What does it look like? (number of spokes). Presumably 5 stud?

    Have a search on eBay for 'Astra alloy' and see if there are any on
    there or you should be able to buy them singly from a Vauxhall dealer's
    parts department - or even a scrapyard?

    When I asked at my local vauxhall dealer about a spare or replacement
    for my Vectra they were about £100 each and available singly.

    At the moment both scrapyards we are familiar with have nothing in
    stock. The wheel has 7 spokes, but I don't know what you mean by 5
    stud.

    Here's a picture anyway:

    As for ordering from a Vauxhall dealer, that wouldn't be a problem -
    the money isn't an issue, it's just I came in here without a clue and
    don't know what details to give them.

    Was it fitted to the car by Vauxhall? - I had to replace an alloy on a
    cavalier - easy peasy, down to the VX dealer, make, model, year - and had
    the car with me - pulled one out of the stockroom all shiny and new.

    Write down everything you can from the tyre and take in the car or at
    least a picture of the wheel. That will do it.

    As an alternative, why not buy a cheaper steel wheel as you woun't be
    able to see it anyway?
