I think they're Zender Siennas?

Re: What are these Alloys ?

I have a set, note they are now discontinued! - I had the wheels shipped over from Germany brand new in June 2007 and purchased a new set of Good Year Eagle F1 GSD3 225/45/17. They were on my 166 from late June until late October so have covered little mileage (I took them off for thewinter). Not a mark - As new.

7.5" x 17" PCD 5x108 ET30

New car purchase due - Wheels for sale.

Re: What are these Alloys ?

They will only fit a 166 as the PCD is larger than the majority of Alfa's

IMO it is one of the most beautiful wheels for an Alfa

Re: What are these Alloys ?

Looked at wobbly bolts, as 166 is 108 pcd ( can get away with 100 pcd )
I am sure there's someone on here that would want to snap your hand off, shame they wont fit mine.

Re: What are these Alloys ?

No probs - I am replacing my current 166 with a newer 166 so will still be of use. New 166 has 18" Ti wheels as standard though so the zenders will not be first choice.

seconded I love Siennas... such nice wheels. I'm really not one for body kits and sticking extra spoilers etc on cars that never had them from the factory but those Autodelta side skirts are the nicest I've seen on a GTV

Re: What are these Alloys ?

In the Alfa accesories catalog, Alfa offered Zender wheels, body kits and interior styling. Also Eibach springs and anti-roll bars and Azev wheels - all with Alfa parts numbers.

The Zender Sienas are one of the best looking wheels on the GTV, very closely followed by the 17" Cup wheels.

Re: What are these Alloys ?

The GTV on this shot... The most beautiful GTV I've ever seen!

Can anyone of you recognize who was the owner? And the work he has done?

Re: What are these Alloys ?

Mostly is lovely, but I don't like the Autodelta front spoiler, the Novitec would be my choice.

..Unfortunately it got totalled !!
(not by the owner that made the changes tho)

Re: What are these Alloys ?

A British guy in Dubai owner that car (or one that looked identical) and when he moved to the UK he imported it to the UK.

He was on one of the big GTV forum's for a while

Cheers,

Agree, on Gtv they look superb! Also have these wheels for GTA SW, and the car look also great

Zender closed their business in September 2008 - some of the wheel patterns were taken over by other manufacturers but not sure what happened to the Siennas
