Have to go with V6Junky with his choice of Zender Milanos. They are pretty hard to find now though but what I did come across was a couple of SZ junkies who have gone to the lengths of designing a 'modern' version of the SZ 16" (similar to the Milano style). They do them from 16" up to 20", cost a small fortune, but can customise offsets (for the GTV). Anyone up for doing a group deal on a set of 18"s?

Wheel details are 8 J X 18" 5X98 ET35, I dont know what that means, anyone know by looking at these numbers if they will fit nicely and not pertruding the wheel arches?
I had some dealings with this seller (DP Motorsport)

The wheels are 5x100 not 5x98 - same as with most of the wheels they advertise as 5x98.

I bought a set of wheels back in February advertised as the same fitment as the ones you like, except that the centre bore required drilling to Alfa's 58.1, the wheels arrived and they'd forgot to drill them so they didn't fit. Sent them back, a couple of weeks later they sent another set, then discovered that they didn't quite clear the Brembo calipers despite their listing banging on about "direct fit, no spacers required"! The bolts they sent were also the wrong seating type - and it turned out that no one made the required seat type bolts with "wobble" capabilities, so no way the wheels would fit. Sent the wheels back again and asked for a refund. After hassling them persistently I eventually got my money back in June !!!

On the plus side I prefer my Teledials to the ones I bought, so it all tunrned out ok!

I run my own small business in Surrey, I mainly deal in used items and have my own machinery etc.. I operate more like an antiques dealer really, rather than a retailer.

Hi Rod, the rims are Tsw Kyalami with alfa badges/stickers in the centers, cant remember the name of the place where i got them from now unfortunately, I think this may have been the only set anyway. Spec as follows, front 19x8 et35, rear 19x9.5 et35. They have spigots for the alfa hub size and 15mm hub-centric spacers all the way round, the actual bolt pattern is 5x100 so I have used wobbly bolts to adjust the pcd. I have used these bolts for years on both my gtvs and have never had any trouble with them at all so I can recommend them.

May have a set of used grey/black deepdish 5 spoke Bk wheels and tyres for sale if anyone interested. They are 18x8 et38 front and 18x9.5 et45 rear, I can always try them on my car first to make sure they fit with/without spacers. Previously used on a golf so wobble bolts would be needed...

hi, yes i have lowered it, at the moment on -50mm springs but soon going to coilovers. I have rolled the rear arches because the 265 tyres with 15mm spacers come right out to the edge of the bodywork, without spacers or with less wide tyres there wouldnt be too much of a problem. 225/35 tyres are ever so slightly too big on the front so 215/35 should be good.

I trimmed the outer edge with an air-cut off tool before rolling the lip tight up against the quarter panel with my trusty arch-roller, with a slight 'pull' on the arch you get around 15-20mm extra space to play with... Had to grind a few little areas aswell for clearance but nothing major or structural...

What kind of spring have you used to get a 50mm lowering. I have tried to find 50mm, but only found 40mm (Notivec). Great spring but the car is still at bit high in the front I think!
What brand is your springs?
Can they be bought online – link please :-)

What dampers have you got on the car now with the 50mm springs?
Can your present dampers handle the 50mm lowering – I havn´t been able to find any dampers that go below 30mm for the GTV V6 3.0!

Thanks

Hello, the springs are made by Supersport, I only ever found one place selling them but cant remember their name now... I think they were around £130 delivered and took 2-3 weeks to arrive.

I have original dampers now as I sold the Konis, they seem to be ok, to be honest I havent driven it for a while. I am going to buy coilovers soon so the -50mm springs will be for sale if you are interested ? cheers

Hey Rod, just wondering about those arms, do you know what state the bushes are in ?

Hopefully the springs will be off the car in the next month or so, depends how long the coilies take to turn up...

I found these while browsing some shop, what do you think? I'm thinking about them, 18". They look alfa-ish to me
Maybe someone good and photoshop could put them on a gtv?
