I would like to buy Rota's from Aspec on Ebay and save a few hundred bucks. The lug nuts that Centerline sells are pretty cheap and I'm hoping that they will fit. It should be the same rim, but Centerline lists it as 13.9Lbs, and Aspec at 14.9. The specs look like the same Rota rim, though. My plan is to buy the metal valve stems and lugnuts through Centerline, rims from Aspec.
I bought my Rotas from Centerline, and they came with the proper lugnuts and metal valve stems.
I have 195/15's and my speedo is pretty accurate; I've only checked it at 45mph and 50mph, though- against the GPS. My 86 has centerline springs and I have to take it slow over bumps or else I scrape the oil pan guard.
Good day, all. I'm back with just 2 questions this time, I promise.
1. I got the 195/60R/15 mounted to my Rota rims. They look very nice BUT....I tried to put the rim on the front and had to take off the Rota cap. Has anybody else had to do this? There was a space until I took off the cap. Looks like a dome with grease on the hub won't fit the Rota cap.
2. Of course, the Alfa bolts won't tighten the rim on the car...too short. I went to AutoZone and bought a set that LOOKED long enough...they were short as well. Does anybody know the correct size acorn bolt I should get? I go online and see 12x1.5, 1.75" TALL. Would these fit?
I want to thank y'all for helping me get my spider back on the road.
Hello - reading some of the information on this topic, can anyone confirm whether on a 67-69 spider verifying the chassis & original engine S/N match is possible or is only the correct model engine that came with the car possible to verify, not necessarily the exact SN one that came with the...
Who's found a source for good Door Limit Straps?
I'm not even done putting my 67 Duetto back together and the reproduction Limit Strap on my driver's door has failed.
I'd spend good money on an NOS one if I could find any. The reproduction parts that I have are not the same...
I dont know, that is a mystery of the ages. Today I opened the hood to finalize the routing of the AFR sender, kinda around the brake booster, etc. and opened the cap to the clutch master cylinder just to look. I set the cap to the side just for a second to get a flashlight and rag and when I...
I noticed that the 164 & 168 guys have a very active thread about what they've been up to, and I think us Spider guys and gals need to get with the program- so I'm gonna start and see what happens!
Today was a very good day! It was a beautiful warm, clear day in South Florida, and I'm sorry to...
