I may try a 6" steelie with original centers and hubcaps i.e. 6x15. Not too wide, stock looking, but a little more aggressive, and easily undoable. No irreversible changes to this original car! (Does that mean I have to keep my rear axle and Dunlop brakes laying around the garage.. forever..??)

These are 6x15s with the early recessed caps. (Member here from Holland I think...)

width vs offset

Too wide? Maybe. Personal preference. A 7" steel can be a fat wheel on certain 105s, and there are the handling / bump steer / tramline / steering axis / scrub radius / rubbing / etc questions. Alloy changes the look. Different tire sizes on the same wheel change the look and the behavior.

So, a compromise between looks, handling, and cost.

The red Volvo has only 5.5" wheels, but obviously with a very small offset.

Wheel offsets

Here's a chart of Porsche 911 Fuchs wheels with the different sizes and offsets available, in a visual format. Interesting.

Have I read somewhere recently that the 4.5" 105 wheel is ET45?? That's a lot of hub cap sticking out. I'll try to measure a spare or something.
