I got those universal spacers and installed them but they were a tight fit. They are really 5x100 spacers. To put them on once it's ok but I can imagine that having to remove them for brake jobs or other work would eventually damage the lug threads as they get scraped going past them.

Nizam, did you just tap and hammer these onto the hubs?

I didn't use a hammer; they slipped right on my hub.

Also, the spacers are a softer metal than the steel studs. If you're worried about the tight fit, next time you take them off, dremel the inside edges of the slots for the relief.

How does your car look now? Pics?

I'm still waiting for the center caps to come. I like the look overall. I kept hearing rubbing I think though on full lock. I want to restore this car eventually. It's been about 12 years since I've done anything to it. It's been sitting in the garage under a cover most of the time. I have the Evo kit and the RSR suspension kit for it. Everytime I look at them and think about starting the work I tell myself I want to rip the engine and everything else out and completely restore it. One of these days.

Looking for pics of GTV6 Campy's on a Milano and surprised there aren't any examples in this thread.

Anyone have any pics of a Milano with Campy's?

Hello everybody,
Any ideas what's the brand of the wheels?
And could anybody give a summary: how does Milano run on R17 wheels? Stiff? Quick suspention wear?
Thanks in advance.
