Hi Franco

Have you contacted Borrani direct? I understand they - or a subcontractor - are remaking the bi-metal Giulietta SS/SZ/etc wheel, but may well be making others.

There is no problem to order Borrani RW-2755 with alu-rims.
I ordered mine at MOR located at munich. They are cheaper than Borrani Italy directly.
The new Borranis are expensive but there is no better looking wheel than a original Borrani wirewheel with alu rim.

Franco, those wheels will be beautiful once they are polished up with newly "triple chrome" (really Copper plating, then Nickel and finally a thin layer of Chrome plating) plated hubs and stainless steel spokes and nipples :thumbup:

A wheel builder named Cork Adams built a set for me about 11 years ago and they still look like new. If you use chrome plated spokes and nipples they are subject to rust at the threaded interface, if they ever get wet. Stainless spokes and nipples may require a special lubricant on the threads to prevent galling when building.

I noticed these on eBay if anyone is looking for a set of painted wheels or some to chrome plate.Alfa Romeo 1900 SS Giulietta Ferrari Maserati Borrani | eBay

Hi Franco,
While I was searching for photographs of the 1900 Barchetta I found these wheels on eBay:

Alfa Romeo 1900 SS 1300 SS Ferrari Maserati Borrani Wheels Aluminum Strep | eBay

I don't see the RW # listed but they are 4" wide rims (I did the math based on the measurements shown in the photographs) and appear to be painted alloy rims; you may want to contact the seller...
