Does anyone know whether the wheels on the 116 Giulietta pictured, exist with 4 X 108 spacing for the 105 series cars?

There's a Giulia Super in Pat Braden's Owner's Bible with a set on, so I'm just making sure that there's nothing strange going on with the car pictured...

Thanks

I didn't really think that they existed before the mid-late seventies which is why I asked the question! I would like to see more pics.

Yes, this particular design does exist in 4 X 108 which was an optional equipment on Spiders of late 70s to early 80s (toward the end of production run of the Series 2).

Ronal made a very similar pattern of wheel, too, IIRC ... complete with "TURBO" script for that go-faster look :rolleyes: . I saw a set on a Lotus Europa last month, they looked particularly good!

Yep, I have seen those. Common on 70's stuff by comparison to the Campy's.

Just as a matter of interest, what is the PCD of the wheel studs on the Europa?

Good looking wheel, but I think if you put a bigger wheel on a Montreal than standard you make it look like the wheelbase is shorter and a bit comical. Because they've got a lot of overhang.

I wouldn't mind a set of those Ronals for my 2002 though...

FYI: The original Ronal Turbo's of the early '80's (?) didn't have the "Turbo" marking in the dish and look much better than the second series of recent/current years. They really botched up a good thing.

Those campys - which were a dealer option on Alfettas/Sport Sedans in '78 - '79 seem to be extra prone to flaking compared to any of the other magnesium wheels offered. If you're looking to purchase a set - inspect them closely.
