Hey alfetta78. The wheels aren't very expensive considering the cost of most wheels in that size. I bought them at Owen Tyres in Brookvale, Sydney. They had to be made on special order and shipped up from Melbourne - it took 2 weeks. Have a look at the website..

Thanks for the comment - it looks HOT doesnt it!

special order? You mean they need to be a custom fit? Looks like the 4x98mm PCD would bol straight on. am i wrong? I have my Alfetta getting a complete rebuild at the moment, I would like it to roll outta the shop next week with a set of those on it.

Yes, 'special order' simply because most places will not keep the correct offset for the Alfa on the shelf. In fact I donít even think they had that wheel in stock in any size for any car at all. I would try ringing around but you might get sold something with the wrong offset or centrebore size. So i would wait 2 weeks and get the proper wheels for the car.
I saw an early model Alfetta sedan with 15" Superlites and it looked great. Iím sure it will look good on the later model as well, definately get the 16x8 wheel.

cheers

thanks for the info... Just one thing? How will i know what the correct offset is? I will be definatly getting the 16x8 just not too sure about the bore.

BTW here is a Photoshop jobbie of what the car should look like with the wheels.

You may need to wait even longer than 2 weeks. The 105 series has a 108mm PCD which is the same as some Fords. Of course the offset is different as is the centre bore (ask me how I know !)

Your Alfetta has a rather unique 98mm PCD which may take longer to fabricate.

Note also that the Performance website shows a 10-spoke Superlight along with the regular 8-spokes. I don't think the 10-spoker looks as good.

OFFSET ?? Take one of your standard wheels with you and they'll ensure the offset stays the same RATIO. I'd be very careful going to 8" wide on a Fetta, especially if it's been lowered at all, and I'd confirm with other owners that 8" will fit.

Is that your Alfetta? it looks really nice! Looks a lot like mine actually!

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/show...+ALFETTA+SEDAN

Nice bodywork too. The wheels look great, buT they look more like 17" or bigger than they would actually look.... maybe not? Those are cool side skirts too, what are they off of? Are u in Sydney?

Thanks for the info. I will take on the wheel project after I turn the key on the new engine.

The skirt kit is from zender and have a look at my custom cream leather... It has that "old classic car smell".... the car currently lives about an hour north of Sydney.

Are you having any problem with this set-up as everybody are suggesting 15x7 on GT Bertone's and IAP are suggesting 195/60-15 or 205/60-15 if 7' wide, but seen other driver fitting 50 and 55 side walls, can you tell which is best fitment.
