Cry Like A Baby Need help and im fed up

Hi All

Today im really pi***d off .

Wheels were all finished refurbed and new tyres etc and i put them in our caravan while i made room to fit 2 on and store 2 in garage.

Work up in the morning and they have been stolen , so angry why cant i just 1 time catch the thieves..

But anyway i need to try and find some more so some advice would be great please .

I want 18"Wheels (for a 156) so what cars have the same pcd 5x98 or what pcd could i get to fit as 5x98 is a odd size.
Example would 5 x 100 fit with wobbly bolts etc


Thx in advance

All spares parts for 156 and 147 being sold that i will not be using (cheap) nothing too small ask what you want , willing to post world wide Phone 07922123242 Ask for Neil and say Mark said to phone .

5x100 does fit with wobble bolts.. Got some on my car!

Just make sure whatever you get has enough offset to clear the calipers.

I think original offset for most OEM alloys was ET33-35, but if it's 35+ then you can pick up some spacers to bring the tread back out to where it should be.. Just get some longer bolts too!

This case is not just offset issue only.
To escape spacers alloys are to tried first.
Do you have GTA knuckles ( this stuff between upper and lower arms ) to fit this brakes ???...

Was this a chance crime or did the thieves target your wheels? Hope you told the police as there is a slim chance they may be recovered. I'd imagine it's quite difficult to sell stolen wheels. Keep an eye on the web and visit your local scrappy to see if he's been offered any. With new tyres on they should be recognisable.

They were really a lot of money than I had got them new 10 years ago.
At this moment they are being laid idle from 2011 when I said goodbuy to my lovely GT and I am sure that I would never use them any more. I would like to get for them 40k Russian rubles which is currently about 500, weak pounds. Not too much for the wheels like that but still a lot generally.
As is anyway.

i was a target as i am out in the sticks and they were not on the car and only in display for 1 or 2 days before i put the in the caravan thats in our driveway. could have been the dustmen or builders that were next door that noticed them.

we are a quiet village but surrounded by gypsy camps so it seems to be a daily thing .
i will keep my eyes open on all selling fronts not to get them back but to find the thieves ,im no angel but i hate these f***kers it happens to often so i think its time to set a trap

Just check that the centre spigot hole is the right size, or use spigot rings if needed. Take particular care if you have to use spacers....you don't want to be relying on wheelbolts alone for wheel location...

Thanks for that i will measure the wheels centre and look for the right spigot and ask for advice to double check

Alfa one is 58,1 definitely.
Have you already tried wheels on ???...
If not, It could be a case than you would need a wide spacer make no possible to put spigot on.
This case you would need a customized spacer including spigot fixed with outer 73 and inner 58.
Two front ones at least.

Once I have ordered TeamDynamics ProRace 1.2 8*18/ET35 for my 159 which is 65,1*hub with 5*110.
They were also 73,1 btw.
Bloody British TD dealer from Manchester send me ET40 iso ET35.
ET40 did not fit to Brembo*305, even.
Dealer was ready to replace them but it was not good idea to send it back an wait for the new ones.
I have to order specific spacers.
