Quite a few Period Wheels were available for Alfa's, not the least of which is the ledgendary Momo.
In '69 there was a specific alloy wheel which was available only in '69 and offered only as an option on the '69 MK1 1750 GTV's.
A friend of mine has a set on his car, which was recently purchased from the guy who restored it to a 100 pointer. The restorer sourced a set of these rare alloys - could be magnesium alloy ?? - for the car as it is a '69 MK1.
At the end of the day, a period wheel, is just that, a wheel which was available to be purchased & fitted during the period the car was originally on the market.
I have a set of Tiger Crusaders, which are almost identical to the Chromadora's fitted to 105 Spiders, excepting they dish another 1" outwards to really fill the wheel arches of a Junior & look amazing on the deep wheel arch Giulia Sprint GT's of '63, '64 & '65.
They will be fitted to my '64 Sprint GT or my 1300 GT Junior, as I have a set of original wheels & hubcaps for both cars, so can swap wheels very easily.
I also have a set of Tiger Tornado alloy rims which have a thin multiple spoke effect & really look good on a Giulia.
I can find out about the MK 1 1750 rim for you if you want ?
