I was looking for second hand rims for my GTV 3.0 phase 2 from 2001 to put some snow tires on. I came accross 6,5Jx16 ET 35 standard teledial rims from a 156.
I checked the original user manual, which states that 6,5Jx16 was standard for my GTV 3.0, looked up the ET values of a 156 and a GTV and it should have matched.
So, I bought 4 nice rims and tried them on......No luck
The front brake calipers are far to big for the 16 inch rims. I even tried with 20mm spaces, but still then I came about 5mm short. On the back the 16inch rims fit perfectly.
As the brake calipers show the Alfa Romeo logo on them (see picture), I was wondering if there was some upgrade, or option back then for larger brake calipers.
I also noticed that the current 17 inch rims seem to be original teledials, but the ET value is 30,5 and I thought the original 17 inch rims had ET 35mm.
Has anyone some additional info ?
