Jim,

You're right of course. Car is now a 2.0 with intercooled turbo.

'Dial' wheels...

Will those wheels fit on a Milano/75?

What's the offset and width?

I can find out for sure, but one issue is that my car is FWD and a 75 is RWD...

The 5 bolt wheels from the current line-up of Alfas will fit on a Milano or GTV-6 with one minor modification, the center hole needs to be enlarged slightly, from 58.1mm to 58.7mm. Other than that, the bolt pattern - 5 x 98 mm - is the same.

Those 147 GTA wheels are very attractive!

Thanks, I like the wheels too. But the biggest problem with them is they scratch very easily and stain easily too. Also, they are VERY difficult to clean. It takes me 1 hour and a half to clean all 4, and even then they're not perfect. Look at all the small corners in it and you'll see what I mean.

156 GTAs have them too, and some people have them on regular 147/156s to make them look like GTAs. They suppossedly cost around US$350 each if you want to get any...but that's only what I've heard, and that's in Singapore.

Stock Turbinas, scrubbed well, degreased, steel wooled, washed down with mineral spirits, and painted with 2 coats of Dupli-Color High Performance Wheel Coating "WP101 Silver", and 2 coats of Dupli-Color Clear Coat. New pop-in wheel centers. New chrome lug nuts from Checker Auto Parts. On the lug nuts, you have to be sure you get the right kind . . . . conical. Don't substitute the wrong profile lug nuts.

2 cans each Paint and Clear Coat . . . about $15
4 Wheel Centers . . . . about $21
4 sets Lug Nuts . . . . . about $25

Ditto!!!!

John, we must be on the same wave length because after careful consideration of options, thats what I did! I dont need to post a picture because those look just like mine do when clean,( with the addition of pimpy Alfa valve stem caps)
I found my lug nuts at Auto Zone.

Get out there and DRIVE !

ATS 6.5x14 on GTV

Here's one that I haven't seen in this thread yet - ATS. Previous owner put these on my GTV sometime prior to 1984 (exactly when, I don't know). They're similar to the Daytonas, but have more relief (the spokes are set back a couple of inches from their edges). They get lots of nice comments from others who see the car.
Sorry for the lousy photo - I can't take a better one now as the car is in the shop for a new clutch and gearbox rebuild over the winter.

I know the purists will be shocked, but I have installed mid-eighties Mustang "10-hole" alloys (15x7") on my '73, with Dunlop 205/60 15 tires. I did have to roll the inner rear lips, but the offset is perfect. The tires sit perfectly in the wells, and give the car a "wide track" look. Handling is excellent, also. Best news is no change of the speedo reading, as the tire diameter remained within about a half-inch of the old. I'd post pics, but don't have the ability.
