Zender 156 V6

The offset (ET) on some of the wheels is cast into the outer rim of the wheel or alternatively its cast on the inside, my 5.5x14 standard 1.7" wheels were 39mm - which I think is standard for the 1.7 Sprint / 33s, cant see why the 16v would be any different.

But it depends what you are trying to achieve with your choice of wheels, standard look, bigger look, bigger diameter, wider, space for big brakes / calipers etc?

So I'd say there is no perfect offset, anything between low 30's to 40 should be fine as long as there is sufficient clearance for suspension components (40's offset) and the tyres dont rub on the bodywork (low 30 or less offset)

Alfa 33 1.7 16v

Thanks again, I'm after getting the best handling and not stressing out the suspension using a 195 50 15 on a 6.5J rim, so I will go for ET39

Alfa romeo 33 QV

Hey guys, Sorry for the off topic reply but i'm looking at getting 17s for my 1994 alfa romeo I.E 33.

Will these rims work without needing the gaurds rolled? The stud pattern is right but the offset is 35 (read in earlier posts it needs to be 39) So will it work?

stud pattern 4 x 98
Wheels are 17" x 7
Offset is 35

Thanks alot. Its hard to get mags for a alfa romeo in NZ.
