I think GTV bolts are 38mm long and 156 (GTA) are 24mm so thats a difference of 14mm more thread. If you fit a 4mm spacer and GTA wheels then the GTV bolts will be too long by 10mm..........at least thats my understanding

I still have the rims on that you can see on my signature.
But I think that I have to use 10mm spacers.

That's my ex 166 Those are Brera wheels. I think I was the first on AO to have them on a 166. They look painted though.... not that shiney as they were.

I had H&R springs on it. Who knows if they broke by now

^^ Is it just me or do those wheels look like they're off a Porsche? Giant PCD on them.

GTV bolts won't fit at all on a normal Alfa alloy because the bolt has a non threaded part. If you used about a 10mm spacer you'd be sweet though..

Pretty much a 3 piece 17" rip off of the Porsche Tele' dials Japanese 5 stud pcd, probably from an imported Nissan 300zx or similar.

What do you guys think?? Will 8.5" +20 be far too aggressive on the front?

EDIT: Just realised the offset is customisable between +20 and +45. Now I'm getting ideas about staggered fitment and possibly stretching the same tyre fitment onto a wider rim on the rear. Yes, I know it's bad for understeer. But you know, I have stock wheels with semi slicks on them for performance driving.

Edit again: Just realised that wider rims on the rear using the same offset doesn't actually increase track (as track is measured from the middle of the wheel) so the track front to rear would be unchanged as long as I run the same offset. If I run the same tyre and stretch it, surely this would have a neutral effect on handling???
