I just acquired a set of 4 14x6 Mille Miglia wheels from a fellow BB'er. They appear to be in really good shape with all the center caps. The hole for the stem measures 14.5mm--not sure thats standard but I don't know. The face appears to have been beed blasted--not sure whether to leave the finish as is or try to polish. Either way I'll repaint the red in the center caps. The outer face has an Alfa stamp, 14x6, Mille Miglia, Maifrini-BS, Made in Italy, MOD. DEP., and 72 in the center of the calendar on the inside of the wheel. The wheels weigh 12.4lbs on an accurate scale. If I measured the offset correctly, they are +19.5. Not sure on this because they don't seem to match any of the other wheels listed in this post--I may be screwing up the measurement. I just ordered a set of Pirelli P4 185x70x14 tires from discount tire and plan to mount them on my 1750 spider veloce which currently runs 14"" steel wheels with Bridgestone 195x60x14 (they were brand new and came on it when I acquired the car--I don't really care for Bridgestone). A guy across the river will mount and balance for 10 bucks a tire--I'll just have to be carefull he doesn't screw up the wheel. In the past , the largest tire I ever ran on a 105 was 185x70x14 and believe I'll be happier with those than the 195's.
I measured the offset by measuring rim width edge to edge 175mm.
(back side of rim) from wheel mounting surface to straight edge depth 107mm.
175/2=87.5-107= +19.5mm. Is this correct? Does anyone know what alloy they are?
