Wheel options 101 Spider?

Hi All,
I was wondering what you have fitted to your 101 Spiders.
My car (still being shipped) has 105 ATE brakes fitted all round. I believe the diff is 105 as well.
Can you post some photos of wheel suggestions please.

It has 70's turbina wheels fitted at the moment, but the car needs something else. Tyres are very old too, so I would like this to be the first thing I change.

I do like the standard wheel look. Will they fit current set up?

Or minilite style.

Regards Daniel

In my opinion, minilite or turbina wheels would just look wrong on a 101 spider.

Yes. The bolt pattern is the same for 101 and 105 series Alfas.

Another option might be the cast aluminum wheels that mimic the style of the original steel wheels. Classic Alfa (and probably others) carry them. Versions are available both with and without hubcap clips.

Yes, I agree the turbina wheels are totally wrong. I do like the wheels you posted.

Do you know if the offset is dramatically different with the 105 set up?

I have seen some 101 spiders fitted with minilite style wheels and they look OK to me.
I was hoping some BBer's can post some photos of their cars with different wheel options including minilite's.
