Has anyone fitted TZ replica wheels on a spider?

Hi all

These wheels from Classic Alfa have got my attention. Has anyone put them on a spider? Any photos? I've searched the bb and haven't found anything. Lots of GTA rims but not these. The Classic Alfa site shows them listed as an option though.

Here's a link and a photo.

Thanks for the suggestion. I looked on their site and saw that they offer them for sale, In the gallery I didn't see any spiders with these wheels...

Look at their R series....they show a burgundy S2 with a V6 engine but with 15" wheels.

It's the offsets that really matter. I think these have an ET of 36mm and are 5.5 in wide so they should fit without trouble. I think the TZ wheels w/ hubcaps would look great on a Spider.

I saw this, but they look like GTA wheels to me... https://www.alfaholics.com/our-cars/...ider-r-v6-013/

Yes, according to their website it has a ET of 36. In fact in a photo of the backside of the wheel it's clearly stamped. I think they would too, but it's a big commitment so it would be helpful to see a photo of them mounted on a spider!

I think that they are 15" if you consider the proportions.

Give Alfaholics a call or Classic Alfa. They can tell you quickly and are graet guys.

I think we are, like the wheels in question, going round in circles. From not only my post but from the others, we took your request to be..... would the 15" x 5 wheels fit and look OK on a Spider. It now appears that you want the visual reassurance of a photograph for aesthetic reasons I presume. May I ask what is behind this request? If you are at all concerned about aesthetics and proportion then stick with the 14" wheels and, by all means, go with the GTA style rims.

Stuart, not sure where this came from, but to quote my original post "Has anyone put them on a spider? Any photos? I've searched the bb and haven't found anything." I don't know how else you could have interpreted that.

Yes, I'm looking to find "visual reassurance" from a photo.

Finally, again as noted in my original post, I had already seen plenty of GTA photos.

I thought of that, but an issue with these wheels is the center area. On a GTA there is a "hub" on the TZ it's a hole and I'm just not sure how it would look with the steel bearing cap... So I though someone's experience and an actual photo would be helpful
