Some new pics of my 69 GTV with steel wheels (was campanola spider wheels). I just love this look and with 185/70-14 tires the steering so so much lighter and nimble feeling.

... and if you drove an Alfa with period 165-14 tires it would feel even lighter.

Nice car. Looks just like my first Alfa in 1977.

Gorgeous car and period correct with the steel rims. More people seem to be "getting it" by going back to the narrower higher profile tyres and appreciating the fluidity and brilliant feel these cars possess. What you lose in pure roadholding you more than make up with that fantastic feel and get closer to the original experience of these marvellous cars. Lets face it chaps -a modern car they are not but they are far more of a true driver`s car. If you can`t adapt your driving style, or can`t accept they are an old car don`t bother driving one.

When I bought my 67GTV, it had 14 in cromodoras with 205/14 and drove like a truck..factory steel 15s with 155/15s made it like dancing with your best girl.

So nice that more 105 owners are finding the joy of driving with the right size tire !
If you read the road tests of the '60s, Alfas were always praised for their light and nimble steering. Big tires spoil it !

See attached some pics of my mate's '71 1750 GTV. From my observation I don't think I have seen too many in this colour.

My old red GTV. Finally found these in my computer. More photos of this GTV and my other GTVs in my ABB garage.

I've been driving my GTV a bunch lately with all this great weather. Here is a photo at my daughter's ballet recital. Mini Vans abound and I'm sure they could beat me in a drag race but they just are no where near as cool. Well, not literally, I'm sure they have air conditioning. Still, I know which I would rather drive. The picture sure makes me look tiny though.

Sometimes getting the space at the front door makes it worth dicing with these monsters.
