Arrow WTS: Ducati Corse Alloy Wheels + More

Hello good people,

Its been a while since I last was here. I gave my beloved alfa to my mother when I moved on to a bigger family car. Now unfortunately the car needs some love or to be broken for spares and repairs as it needs around a grand of work to get her back fighting fit and her worth is preventing that.

The good news that means the Ducati Corse wheels I brought from here a few years ago are now available. I have uploaded some pictures please feel free to make me an offer on the wheels, parts or the whole lot.

Looking at forums rule changes I believe this is the right area?

Good Bits:
Ducati Course 18' Limited Edition Alloys
HUGE service history and a TON of paper work and receipts
Suede Style Interior
New shape 147 (have original small alloys if required)
1.9 JTD engine
Runs and drives
5 door variant

Bad Bits:
Car has sat for a year but fired up first time on the button as always
Curbing on the alloys will mean light refurbish (well worth the effort)
Suspension has creak, believe this is rear trailing arms
Clutch is quite heavy so may need adjustment or eventual replacement
Body panels have heavy hail damage

I am selling as spares or repairs so please keep this in mind as would take a little effort to get pass MOT but it runs and drives and had been the most reliable car I owned (from an alfa!).

I really would like to see the wheels at least go to someone who will appreciate them so please get in contact though here or by email misearle (at) me (dot) com.

Thanks Guys and Girls

I know money is money but surely this is too good to be broken up for bits. My 147 has a heavy clutch most of the time, does yours slip at all? Most cars now have some damage to the paint from road rash and the suspension repair, if is it trailing arms, shouldn't cost the earth. The alloys can wait until later. I've seen worse cars go for 2,500+. Plus the DC's are getting rarer and it would be a shame to see one less on the road

Wow man, if I was closer (and had enough money) I'd buy them in a jiffy. Good luck, beautiful wheels!

If they don't, you can always get spacers, right?

Yes they are 18's. I live up in the midlands so can arrange to get the car or wheels back up here.

The tyres have had very little use I can check the tread left but they have allot of life left in them!

Thanks for the reply buddy. What sort of price would we be talking about? To be honest I'm holding out for a replacement cloverleaf alloy (one of mine is cracked), but I was thinking about getting 4 new alloys and then selling my ones off. But to be honest I'd rather see your car sold whole haha

That does look in too good condition to be sold off as parts. I don't suppose those wheels fit a GTV do they?

Apologies for the late reply, I have seen GTV's with 147 wheels and also up to 19" so I think they would be a great fit. I have never seen a GTV with DC alloys but can imagine it would look amazing! Rare wheels on a modern classic!

GTV has different PCD I think .. 147 and 156 is 98x5. They might fit with wobble-bolts, but I'm not keen on that idea!

Ahh very good to know, had seen some GTV running the ugly basic 15" 147 alloys so assumed they would be a straight fit!

The GTV has the same PCD (5 x 98) as the 147/156/GT, there's a difference in offset though which means you might need spacers especially on a V6 with bigger brakes ?
