Shows us pics of your wheels, name of wheel, ET, tyre size etc....

So this can act as an ideas thread for everyone (seems to work well on the GT forum).



Later 916type GTV spider 16x6 alloys with 195/45/16 tyres

theres a lil modification you need to do to these to get them to fit. the ones for the front wheels need to have 1mm taken off the centre hole (5mins with dremel) - to get them to clear the hubs, also add a 5mm spacer to the rears, to clear the curved lip on the hubs.


Revolution RFX (as fitted to Veloce models in the UK), with polished outer lip. 15x5.5 195/50/15

Those Revolution RFX 15 inch Veloce wheels are 7 inches wide not 5.5, at least, both sets of mine are! Painted black here to hide the brake dust but usually plain silver.



There's a 14 x 6.5 version too that's more common on the TS Veloce, they came fitted with these as standard with the 7x15 as an option. The V6 Veloce came with the 7x15 and the correct tyre size was 195/55 although Alfa often let them out on 195/50 making the car seriously undergeared in TS form. Car Magazine famously ran out of gears at 119 mph in a test TS Veloce with these wheels fitted, not helped by an over eager rev limiter that tripped at 5700 rpm instead of 6200!

I think those standard wheels on the 3 litre V6 in your picture were 14 x 6.5 too although the earlier Euro 2.5 V6 got a 5.5 inch wide version of the same type. The wheels went an extra inch wider to go with the plastic arch extensions.

Wheels

front 205/55R16
back 215/55R 16 - now 205 with at bit of stretch :punk:

last photo with 10mm spacer first photo without spacer
Nice wheels. What is the name of them and how come you didn't go for a wider tire for the rear? Is 215 the widest you could fit?
