17" Teledials GTA vs GTV

Hi guys,

Which one of the above mentioned wheels is more valuable and the rarest?
We're talking about original Alfa wheels, not replicas.

And what about practical differences between them?
I know the GTA's are ET 35 and the GTV's are ET 40, or something like that.
I know the GTA's clear the 305 Brembos (obviously...), what about the GTV ones?
What about weight? Anyone know the weight difference between them?

Well, that's about it for now... Can hardly wait to read your comments!

Cheers!

GTV are ET30 (maybe ET30.5)
They also clear the 305mm Brembos as the GTV V6 that those wheels were fitted to have the same front brakes.

GTV has a different suspension setup though. Are the same brake discs used on the GTV and GTA?

Thanks for the correction David!

Which do you think looks better on the 156?
(I know this is totally personal, but WTH...)

Allow me to demonstrate how it looks like:
GTV vs GTA 17 inch.jpg
Rear wheel: GTV 17"
Front wheel: GTA 17"

Note: this picture was taken from the 156.net forum, for demonstration purposes only. It just happens my car is pretty much the same.

Always liked the original Tele's but for me the GTA Tele's win hands down.

GTA teles definitely win. The difference in colour is also a contributing factor in my decision however!

Teles are the greatest Alfa wheel ever. Looked at getting a new Mito recently couldn't get red or tan leather and teles as options with the biggest engine. What are Alfa thinking? Jet fins and alacantra noooooo.

Althought the GTV Teles seem to bet the rarest, I confess I do preffer the looks of the GTA ones.
I should be getting the new GTV wheels in next week, and see if I can trade them for a set of GTA ones and once they're fitted I'll post a pic of how they...

I'm gonna buck the trend... On that car, in that picture, I prefer the GTV Tele's....

Problem with putting GTA teles on a non-GTA 156, just doesn't quite look correct to me!
