Dont forget OZ Racing

Also in the same style but only offered in a 15"rim I think are the OZ Racing 3 piece wheels. I was so enamored with the wheels that years ago I let it undully sway my desicion to purchase a Verde out of Wisconsin from a less than reputable person. Eventually gave up on fighting all the chronic rust issues.....but I've kept the wheels and recently brought them back to better than new. Now just plotting a GTV6 purchase to use them.

Here's a recent thread with some pics of my refurbed wheels:

Oh the sexyness of a GTV6 in white. Black wheels with some dish that aren't to big in diameter but of decent width all set off by a nice ride height (I can only imagine your lower control arm angle ).

Thanks duk, the cars looking good.
The control arms are not to bad, there pretty big tires on those rims so it might be a little deceptive. Defiantly need some modified uprights so I can drop it a little bit more at the front. I do like the white but I almost need sunglasses to look at it.

They look like Simmons wheels from Australia.

Thought that I would add my wheels to the compilation. Compomotives, I've also heard the name 'Exip' bandied about in regards to this rim.

These are some of the best looking wheels for a GTV6 ever: Speedline Corsa, as the 80's Group A Racers.

- 16x7,5 fronts.
- 17x8,5 rears.

BTW:
A bit susrprised how heavy they are.

Thanks, I was very fortunate that they came with the car. I had the choice of these or the stock for '83 rims, that was an easy decision.

I would be curious for the BBs thoughts. Personally I love the two tone, bare metal and black but I imagine it would look good either stripped to bare metal all over (like the Ferraris and DeTomasos that ran those in the 80s) or painted all black like the pics racingswim posted in another thread about my car. (http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alfe...tro-video.html).

I think a pic from a few steps away would give a better idea how they look. personally, i think the two tone is a bit busy. If they were mine, I'd have them stripped and powder-coated a nice silver or a "black chrome" (which are not black at all but a "less white" silver - like the OZ rims on my 2002 Lancer OZ Rally daily driver).

Borbet Type A's

I think I'm partial to the AZEV Type A's but I still think the Borbet Type A's present a very nice period look. The 5-star pattern is definately chunky, but unique.

Caught this car in another thread and I wish there had been a better side-view picture.
