Largest Rims on a 33?

Im planning on upgrading my 33s wheels (tires and rims) What are the largest that will fit, without rubbing problems. I was planning on 17s

17's ????? eek!

Forget it!!!

Without widening the arches the best you can opt for is 15*6.5, perhaps with 195/50R15 tyres.

Be careful about the offset too.

And if the car is lowered too, then really forget it

ive had three alfa 33 16v's and ive put 16" wheels on every one of them no problems wink

and ive seen a few with 17" on, though i'm not sure if they had to do anything to wheel arch's.

if i remember correctly the guy at alfa aid of london had some 17"wheels on his 33 8valver.
he also put a turbo on it!!!

maybe if you send him an quick email he will tell you if you need to do anything for 17"

hope this helps wink

17's cause problems on a most 33's and suds, 16's are bout the biggest, 15's are preferable,

I have seen both a sud and a 33 16v modified to fit 18's and both looked pretty stupid

I have some 195/55R15 tyres running under my car, and they are doing perfect. Though I had some offset problems at the back... My car isn't lowered, so I can probably put on some 16 inch wheels, but I think 15's are the most comfortable on my 33
