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!
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...
I rolled my '92 164 S about five feet at very slow rate (accidentally) into the back of a SUV. Didn't scratch the SUV but my front bumper looks slightly askew and I had a hard time opening the driver side of the hood. In the service manual it looks like the bumper cladding is covering a beam, is...
If your power mirrors stop responding normally, it's probable that the door mounted switch is corroded.
1. If you're getting nothing out of the switch, it's possible that the fuse (fuse F5 on the aux fuse box above the main fuse block) is blown. However, if the courtesy lights are working...
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...
