Do 159 17" wheels fit Ti (Brembo brakes)?
This question relates to travelling to the snow fields in the 159 Ti Q4. Apparently, 'chains' are unsuitable to fit on the 19" wheel setup (let alone scratch the wheels), so I am contemplating buying a set of winter wheels/tyres that can have snow chains fitted.
So can anyone confirm if OE/Alfa 17" wheels from a 159 will fit over the Brembo calipers on the Ti models? If so, do the ones pictured fit? Or other 159 17" wheels?
I believe even the 18" wheels are not recommended for snow chains. Unsure why; perhaps the wheel/tyre width means the chains would 'rub' against the wheel arch liners.
