159 Alloy Wheel Alternatives?

I have a 2011 SW with the multispokes which i dont like and whilst id love some 19s realise they are both hard to get hold of and expensive - so what else will fit a 159? Ie will 166 wheels fit? Or anything else?

Apart from Brera, which is obviously the same, the only Alfa with the same PCD is the Giulietta, but they use M12 bolts rather than the M14 of the 159/Brera, so they would need the holes drilled bigger.

Plenty of GM with the same fitment though.

Don't think Giulietta wheels need to be drilled - I think they can accommodate M14 bolts - I know the guy with this Spider didn't drill the wheels, they just bolted straight on.

May depend on the specific Giulietta wheel as I also know someone that put Giulietta wheels on his 159 and he did need to drill the holes as the M14 bolts were too tight.
