Anyone know anything about my momo's?
As mentioned by tuneRboy - they do resemble the wheels from early to mid 80's Dodge cars. Your's even have 40 holes, however, the Dodge wheels don't have any additional indentations around the lug holes as yours do. I can't quite wrap my head around Dodge using Momo as a supplier in the '80's either...:confused:

From the following website: http://www.xmission.com/~dempsey/shelby/wheel101.htm

The pizza wheel was accompanied for the 1984 model year by a similar wheel known most commonly as the swiss cheese wheel because of its numerous holes of different sizes that are scattered all over the wheel's surface. This wheel was used on various vehicles, but only for a short time. It was introduced in the 1984 model year, wherein it could be attached to just about every high-performance and/or turbocharged car made by Dodge and Chrysler - standard on the Daytona turbo, Lazer turbo, and Omni GLH (but not the Shelby Charger); it was also optionally used (when 15" wheels were called for) on some K-car based vehicles (400 and 600, etc). As it turns out, swiss cheese wheels were used on at least a few cars into the 1985 model year until it was phased out completely; thus there are 4-lug and 5-lug versions of it in existence. All swiss cheese wheels had 40 holes (count 'em!) and measured 6.0" wide.

crappy pic but what the hxll

Here is my long gone 67 gtv. It came with these wheels and I don't know what they are. Tried to make them clearer using photoshop but this picture was taken before color photography was invented so there was only so much I could do. I do know that the center hole diameter was too small to work on any conventional tire changer at the time.:eek:

Color photography has been around since at least the 1930's.

Admit it, you were just too cheap to buy color film :D
OK, you caught me on that one. At least the car was anthracite grey:) I suppose I still could have used a faster, less grainy type of B/W film.

Nero,
Thanks for the info on the name of these wheels.

Mille Miglias

As Nero said, the wheels appear to be Mille Miglias. A nice pic is included in Steve Schaeffer's post very early in this thread:

Michael (now with 6 of them, AND a '74 Spider to go with)
Yep. And he sold them in 2003 for 2/3 of what I got for the entire car in 1980! :( But as I said, they were kind of a pain as they were not compatible with tire changing machines and also really needed a good wire brush to keep clean. I do like them better than some of the other mags that were original options for the gtv though.

Painted Turbinas

I have the chance to pick up a set of Turbinas at a very reasonable price.
I have never been a big fan of these wheels on a Spider, but it seems to be pretty hard to find period wheels in my neck of the woods.
Has anyone ever two toned a set?
I'm wondering if it would soften the flat profile compared to the Spiders' round lines.
Also, my car is silver, so stock colours get lost in the wheel wells.

Turbinas are appropriate for your car, but they are hard to keep clean. If you want a different than stock look, however...why not go with a different type of wheel? You can find inexpensive Ford wheels (Focus, Mustang, etc.) at any junk yard for example. With a Silver car, a black wheel with a silver-painted rim would look very nice.

Hi all

I have been searching for a pic of a 75 or milano with the speedline "teledial" style mags which come on the alfa suds and some gtv6s in the states but have had no luck with searching through google and the bb

Has anyone got these mags on their 75 or have a pic of them fitted ?

Thanks

Nick
