New 17 Alloys + Tyres + locking nuts with postage for under £500 !!!
Had to tell y'all. Since getting my 147 a month a go I have wanted to put 17inch wheels on her.
The 15inch Elegant Alloys are very nice but not 17 inchers. Originally I had asked the Alfa dealer to get me some and they umm'd and arr'd and then told me that they could not get any 17 wheels for at least 2 mths!!!
I then went to Halfords and laughed alot at the prices and muppets behind the counter
I few searches and ebay auctions later I came across Mania Racing. Spoke to a guy there and he sorted me out with some Team Dynamic 17 inch Spider alloys for 210 pounds! Then I started looking for tyres 17 215/45 and got some recommendations of the Avon ZZ3 for motorway miles and quietness. I asked Mania Racing again if he do me a deal 70 quid a tyre fitted and balanced to the alloys that he was getting ready to send me. No extra postage either and he threw in a set of locking nuts too and the proper alfa inserts for the middle of the wheel!
So 500 quid all in for the whole deal! I was so amazed that I thought to pass on the good news.
I will post some pics just as soon as I get them fitted this weekend.
Now what to do with my 15inch elegants...
Perhaps a gift for my girlfreind if they fit on the punto or keep them in the shed and put them back on the bella when I upgrade to the GTA!!!!
Or sell them to recoupe some cash...
