rims finally refinished

picked up my car today.

had all the rims including the spare powdercoated.

i decided to go with the color center caps from alfissimo.

cost me $875 from usa wheels in fairfield, nj.

it was expensive - but i am happy as they did a great job.

you will be happy with them. good inexpensive purchase to dress up the car - and they are OEM. look at my tires closely - i have the colored valve caps also - they were about $15 on ebay.

Why the older P4000 mixed in with the P6's? SHouldn't that be you spare?

The wheels look great!

You really spare no expense on your car, treating it like it should be treated!

when i purchased the car - the original owner only replaced the back tires with the P4000 - not sure why - i will prob replace all 4 in about 2 years as all of the current tires still have good thread. i realized that when i posted the pictures i accidently added the front twice which explains why there are 3 P6's and 1 P4000 when it really is 2 P4000's in the rear - but everyone gets the idea of how the rims came out.

what tires originally came with the car?

so can we get this straight? does anyone know for sure what the diameter size is for the different alfa rims??

i thought the daytona & turbina rims had the smaller 50mm wheel centers and the quad wheels had the 59mm.

anyone have a caliper and can measure this? thanks

keep an eye on those full color center caps.
They make great souvenirs
