high$$$ japanese wheels...


here's a 15x7 "gta look" wheel for 105 alfa. at 4.8kg it's probably lighter than the original mag campy or official replica techno's 14x7. To bad they don't look close enough to the real ones....

Thanks so far, very nice pictures and wheels. Does anyone know the manufacturer of these wheels?

But i am still looking for a picture of the 15x7 original GTAm wheels (with the original offset...), because i am planning to rebuild a 2000 GTAm and do not want to use the 13" wheels...

Davbert,

Oh, if only I understood Japanese! Some very interesting things for sale there, almost worthy of a new thread along the lines of "What's all this for???"

Alex.

Autoparco

I may help you if you want to know about this shop--- I may be able to understand Japanese better than you because I am---

The owner of the shop says in his HP that the rims are made in Japan.

The owner of that shop would be able to seriously increase the volume of his sales if he had an English version of that website to click on to! I might be very interested in his TZ alloys - do you know what they are made of, what offset they are and how much each one weighs? Would you be able to translate other things too if needed?

Thank you very much!

Alex.

And if he would ship it to the States I would be very interested buying a set or two (2nd set for resell and save some shipping?)

That wheel is gorgeous.

TZ & TI Super alloys

Alex,

I can get no infos about TZ rims from the page, no discriptions are there but its price. And yes, I think I can give you some informations with my poor English, about another parts if you want. By the way I have just now received a email from the owner of AUTOPARCO and he said that he has decided to translate his HP into English. You will be able to see it soon---(maybe not very soon---)

15x7 GTAm wheels

I recall seeing something about a 15" wheel homologated for the GTAm in one of the GTA/m books (either Alleggerita or Giulia coupe GT & GTA). However, I have never come across anything recently on the Internet that mentions anything of their existence (original or otherwise). My guess is that a few may have been made at some point, but they are long since gone. I'm no expert on the history of Alfa, but I can tell you I have spent MANY MANY hours searching through several search engines looking for sources of GTAm replica wheels. The only thing I have found is the 13 x 8 version, which is what I bought for mine....

the 15"x7" gtam wheels may be the same type that were offered for the late gta's and other 105 series cars. nobody wanted to run them (could be tire compounds were not good for a 15" wheels on such a light car as alfa in the 70's) the wheels i remember were a riveted 3 piece wheel that had the same number of round holes or windows that the am wheels had. they were manufactured by an american company called "chassis engineering" and available in the alfa competition catalog (there is a picture). they look very similar to the later "centerline" wheels that many people were running on the street and track in the mid 80's. also you might check that nice big white gta book that came out, it might have some pictures.

cheers, paul van der linden
