Re: Wheels and Key, please help.

heaps of info in these forums about wheels via 'search'.

you can go up to 19" diameter with 225/35 tyres. width can be 7.5" and offset +38mm without probs; up to 8.5" will fit with careful consideration of offset (+35mm with little margin for difference).

i don't know about the keys. part of the expense is with the CODE chip, which will require programming, to match the car.

i suppose just changing the innards from your key to the new(er) one would work.

Cheap key and modern Alfa don't belong in the same sentence! The £109 probably doesn't include the cost of coding the immobiliser and alarm.

Chris on here will refurbish the key for you I'm sure. He has an ebay listing. Go and type in "alfa key repair".
