New rims

At the risk of coming under fire from the "Alfa Purista" I thought I would post a picture of the new rims on my Graduate and see what people thought of them.

and "yes" I kept the old wheels so that I could always return the car to original.

Cheers

I like 'em. I usually don't like real "spidery" looking spokes but those are very tasteful and give your graduate an updated look. Nice car, too!

The rims are from BWA. I purchased them from a guy about 2 miles from my home so I saved "big" on the shipping charges.

I needed 5mm spacers for these wheels which the wheel supplier provided. If anyone is interested, I think he may still have a few sets left and the price was very attractive.

I also added a picture of the car from a different angle with the top up


Cheers

Nice clean 5 spokes always work, look similar to Serpent wheels.

Sapilot143,
Interesting.
Which BWA wheels are yours, which size, how much and where is the dealer located?

I like them. The shape and size are in keeping with the style and age of the car. Nice choice!

Very nice looking. I wonder if you can adapt some alfa logos to go in the center?
