No you can run them, just need a spacer on the rear 5-10mm, 10mm preferred!
I am running 235/40 tire which is made for a 8.0" wheel but fits just fine on a 7.5. No rubbing. Just sold the last set of Siena wheels to a 164 customer in a 18X8.0 which are fine. Can't wait to see those if he gets me a pic.
make sure, and I repeat make sure the offset is lower than stock, like 25mm-30mm et.
Now if running a 5 mm spacer on a 40mm offset wheel that will reduce the offset by well 5mm, the offset will be 35mm, 10mm spacer= 30mm et, perfect
25mm offset with a 10mm spacer= 15mm offset, that is what I have on the rear. 25mm with a 5mm spacer =20mm on front.
Works fine for me. I like a lower offset anyway. Better tire wear and handling is just fine for street use. Corners great. Just remember most European touring cars run a 0 offset. Not that that is something to go by but they do just about the same type of cornering we do in a car but lower speeds. The camber is still going to give your the good handling.
Hey thanks Jason!! Hey, I am going to attempt to change my timing belt and water pump next weekend, so I will be calling you for advice if that is okay with you. It sounded real easy when you told me the steps, but now that I have all the parts and I am ready to do it, I am getting a little scared I will mess it up big time and screw up my engine!
A new issue has popped up on the 91 164S.
The engine is quite strong until it reaches operating temp. I have replaced the timing belt, fuel pump, filter, injectors serviced etc.
I have tried the self-diagnostic with the steering column and for some reason, it does not work, no flashes...
What did you do Alfa [and 164] related today?
I had a slow to go Alfa day today.
First off I worked on setting up my wife's future garden plot permiters with 4x4 eight foot posts. I tilled up part of the area yesterday with my neighbor's roto-tiller. I have to get more soil and compost...
Does anyone have any 164S that they have as a donor car for parts ? I need a partial "floor pan" approx. 1/2 way back the rear door (seam to seam) and back to approx. 1/2 into the spare tire cut out. we are doing a rust assessment now and will know more soon BUT putting out some feelers...
I haven't posted anything since 2008 and sadly my once babied '91 164S has been mostly sitting (not good) and hence no longer runs (last time was 2 years ago). I'm working on getting it running again in that I need to find a place where I can store the car and or open to the idea of...
I moved the '95 LS into the workshop. Both boys were available, so, with a bit of bribery involving ribs and some freshly made caprese salad, they helped push the car into the workshop. My D-I-L participated by steering it into position. It was surprisingly easy to push.
I'll get it up on the...
