Rims Dillema??????????

I need help quick..
I was looking for alloy rims for my AR 33 series 3
Now when I found it I'm in dillema..
I've found good condition rims from Alfa 155 , but I have two choices
one are 14" x 6J and second 15" x 6J..
both of them have offset of 49mm
Which one to choose ...or wich one are less trouble(direct fit).. do I need spacers for both of them or only for the 15"(??).. Since I would then choose 14" (less hassle I think ???)
Anyone with expirience????

I think you'll need spacers for both of them, because the 33 uses an offset of 38/39 (not sure)... I think the 15" will look a lot better wink

All the Best

The offset should really be around 35-40mm.

I used to have the same wheels on my 155 but they were 6.5 x 15".
If you go for the 15" wheels then you should fit 195/50 tyres.

If the offset of both sizes of wheel is 49mm then you will probably need spacers otherwise the wheel will be set too far in to the car.
