On that note, has anyone ever fit 9" wide wheels to a GTV? I'm looking at Advan RS, available in ET29 (GTV fitment) but I just wonder whether they would foul on anything.
Well insurance is a good enough reason for me, means you cant put many sort of wheels on the GTV then.

I'm now thinking a staggered fitment would look good, but I can see it increasing understeer and decreasing the (awesome) lift off oversteer. Could stuff with the sway bars to change that up though.

The wheels I'm looking at wouldn't involve dish, but instead the rear wheels would have a more concave face than the front. Flush all round is the goal though. Geez the 19s look good, I'm having second thoughts about just 17s, might need to go 18s.

Hi guys!!!

Could You please advice following, I have 8.5Jx18 "Barracuda Extreme" wheels fitted with aprox. 5mm spacers for summer. (now they are on refurbishing) what tyre size will perfectly fit them for Ph2 spider? Till now I had 225/35 -fronts and 225/40 rears. Imho - it is not necessary to have different sizes for front and rear, it could be the same size, but I don't like 225/35 (it seems to me that it is a little bit narrow to fit the rim).

Well the GTV Spider should have same size wheels and tyres front and rear.

Not fitted them yet, need to get some rubber for them first but I've also just bought a set of OMP RS seats so a little down on funds at the moment to pay for new tyres. I can feel the credit card getting a work out in the very near future, then I'll get some pictures up

I just got a set of 17" Toora (7J x 17) wheels for my spider, like the one attached (originally equipped on 147/156 TI).

Problem is they have ET40.5 and will go inside the arch and also my original bolts are too long for them.

Question is what spacers do I need to keep the wheel on an optimal offset and maybe keep the original bolts?

Unfortunately you would need 10mm spacers to move them out to the same place as the originals.
I say "unfortunately" because you won't get a hubcentric 10mm spacer. So you have to go to 12mm or even 15mm.

No idea if you will be able to use your original bolts as it will depend on the thickness of the mounting face of your new wheels.

These are the exact wheels I wanted for my car ! Where did you get them from ? I havent been able to find any second hand or new. Youll have to show us pictures on your car once there on.

Eibach produce a 10mm hubcentric spacer but its a compromised design and as David says 12mm + is better.

The 156 have 23mm long bolts with about 10mm of thread into the hub and IIRC GTV bolts are 35mm (38?) long. You need about 10mm of thread into the hub so that should give you an idea if your existing bolts will be long enough for any spacer you decide to fit.

You can find plenty of the TI and other Alfa wheels on Ebay.it and Ebay.de but shipping International maybe a problem.

Also the TI have an offset of 40.5mm (maybe some copies are 35mm?) and in Australia you said you cant use spacers

Hi! I saw my car here in both versions - with 18" OZ Crono Evo and with 19" OZ Superleggeras...

Here are the close-up photos of current setup:

http://dpasaric.kreativni.hr/Alfa%20...a-19-front.jpg

http://dpasaric.kreativni.hr/Alfa%20...ra-19-rear.jpg

The ride is not much harder than with 18" setup, so if you like the look - go for it. The wheels are very light - if I remember correctly they are lighter than original 17" Alfa teledials wheels.

Nice wheels! Do you have any pictures of the whole car with them on?
