Tim Robinson I love the Ronals but would be more than happy with the Compomotives .
The only wheels i dont really like are the standard ones.
I actually used to run some widened 14 inch 75 TS steel wheels with track tires and loved those also.

Giuliaveloce65 No doubt this has been opined before, however, I have two favourite GTV6 wheels, 15x7 Ronals and the rare 15x7 Compomotives fitted to the South African GTV6s

Yakima GTV6 Datienza, any updates on this? Have you been driving on the Cokers? How has it been working out?

Yakima GTV6 Good luck! ... please let us know how it goes. Are you planning to daily drive it with the Coker tires? I thought they had some warning against road use.

Good luck! They will certainly look good, but keep in mind that Coker states that they are for display only and not suitable for driving.

Yakima GTV6 Alfa Robert, those are awesome! Well done. Like you and many others, I've got a set of the original Speedlines in my garage. I love the look, but what to do with them? Maybe turn them into a coffee table or something.

Matt at Alfasupply says he could procure Lancia Stratos coffin spokes with gold finish fit for a GTV6 ... would be very nice! I am saving up.

Looks like you stuck with the stock offset but maybe not.

The folks at NTM were urging me to go to 25 mm offset, which looks great but is a big change.
Going from the metric Speedlines made of magnesium (or are they alloy?) to much bigger wheels made of aluminum, the weight gain isn’t too much of a surprise. I don’t expect 6 pounds at each corner to make much of a difference in daily driving.

Stock offset is 44 mm. These are 40, at NTM’s recommendation. I can’t decide if the difference is really perceptible. I think the combination of slightly wider tire and slightly smaller offset adds up to a visible difference. Again, not likely to affect daily driving much.

Zinhead Those NTM wheels look great. Too bad they weight so much compared to the originals.

alfaromeorobert I just noticed that the 16” wheels and tires are more distinctly visible in this pic.
04-11-2019 03:10 PM
chairmankaga As long as people drive Miatas and e30s, there will always be some pretty decent 15" tires. You just have to go wider and lower profile. I went some Yokohamas (S Drive 205/55/15), pretty well liked by the MX-5 guys, and have had zero issues so far. They were also cheap!
That said, I really want a set of Ronals.

thank you,david
As far as I know, there are no other tires that will fit those wheels. None. This is why I had custom 16” wheels made to match the Speedlines.
