I just found this company. Chanced upon it searching ebay for GTV6 stuff. IMO the ESM-001 would look awesome on the GTV6!

On the other end of the spectrum, you can get a set of Benzoni 14" Milano rims for $299.00! Which is pretty cool considering. I think i bought mine for 1/2 of that several years ago..

Does anyone know which wheels these are? They looked to be pretty much close to the stock dimensions, with maybe a little more offset:



I took the pics last Saturday at Laguna Seca- I was floored to see an '84 in the same colors my car originally wore, the root beer and gray scheme. I've never seen another like it.

Those ESM-001, measuring 16x8 in black, would seriously suit a charcoal grey 75 Evoluzione!

Haha, I've had their site open for two weeks with that rim style on the screen...really would suit the Alfetta body style.....so tempting.

JT, that car is beautiful !! I would love to hear from the owner. Great color, great wheels, and very likely other cool Mods as well.

"I like these Kahn RS-R lookalike"

I think they look good on the GTV-6.

These look very similar to the 16 inch Borbet type E's I have on my 164's. Seem to compliment the car shape pretty well, while not looking overly busy. Super easy to clean as well.

Are these actual ES30 (SZ) wheels or are they 3 piece replicas from somewhere?

A bit too shiny (polished center, stainless lip) but got the look of the original Alfa wheels.

Get 9.5inch of rim under a GTV6 rear gaurd...if you can stomach the tyre price (think Porsche tyres)
