Defo not unique, from a distance they look a bit like Zender Siennas without the cost.

I like these wheels.....on the GT but I think they're a bit too harsh for the 916. Shame I was going to buy & try some on a Spider but your picture has put me off a bit.

Wow, I wonder how many people went for the optional tow bar!?! and 255/45 17 available on the teledials, surely the phase 3 must have had even more space in the arches.

I'm sure 255/45/17 is a mis-print, should be 225/45/17.

I have seen a GTV with a towbar once, not sure if it is that exact one.

Yeah misprint, 255/45 would be too big but 255/40 17s are ok....I've had them on the rears with no problems.

size wise i understand, but to me that picture is just a glamorized shot with leaves covering the tire. it looks like 19s on that picture.
There are only 2 examples of GTVs with the cloverleaf wheel so its hard to get a good sense, if its the design of the wheel it self then i cant help with that. for me its my favorite wheel above all wheels. Its probably because i dont consider the 916 a classic.

first picture makes the wheels look 2D.

So is height more of an issue than width with the idea of a 255 tyre on 17" rims then Clive? My first thought would have been that there wouldn't have enough width in the arch.

They also quote 245/45 17 on the Monza's, and 235/40 17 and 245/45 17 for the Milano's. Interestingly though both sets of wheels quote except 3.0 24v V6, could there be less wheel arch space in the V6 than the twinnie for some reason.

Are they with spacers, presumably you had to use them on a GTV?

It's a combination of height and width that determines whether they rub. I think the V6 had an increased track although I don't know how this was achieved.

By the hub carriers on the front and by the rear hub and perhaps the upper wishbone also. Hopefully Clive can recall our conversation about it from many years ago!

Ah. That explains all the different part numbers for those parts then.

I do & there are different part numbers for TS & V6 rear components.......but I've measured V6s & TSs & there's no difference!!??......I've even measured with different wheels & still the track's the same width(the track being to the centre of the wheel/tyre).

Best to now assume they're all the same.

The 'except 3.0 24v V6' is because the wheels offered won't clear the 24v V6's front brake calipers.....nothing to do with tyre sizes or arch clearance differences.

Height is more of a problem than width but obviously you can't go too wide & the profile is a percentage of the width not a direct measurement of the side wall as some think.

When experimenting with wheels etc it really is a suck it & see....trial & error + it helps to understand what wheel J, tyre width combined with differing inner wheel face shapes, ETs & spacing can cause.......& don't forget to fit bump stops!

Yep suck it and see seems to be the answer. I've got 18" teledial style GT Blackline wheels on my GTV and with 235/40 18's on I need a 10mm spacer on the front. I put the spacers on the back too although i'm not sure I needed too, and it does make it look a little ' carlos fangango' from the rear so might try taking them off if it doesn't cause any tracking setup issues. Also i'm not sure if a previous owner had put lowered springs on or its just my original ones have seen better days, but my car does seem a little low.

After some months of deliberation, I have decided to stick with the original alloys.

I've just put 147 wheels on mine with Sparco 20mm spacers at back and 16mm at the front.
Bit of a different look but I quite like it!
