Oy, David

Last time out we were talking about the sorry state of my GT's wheels and how they seem to be rather rare. We were also talking about the different Alfa offsets and now I'm wondering if mine were originally GT wheels at all because looking at them they don't appear to fill the arches quite as much as other GTs seem to. I do like the style but I'm wondering if the difficulty to find replacements is because I'm looking for the wrong thing.

What do you think?

You are correct, after a closer look I think they are actually 156 alloys, I thought they were originally the same as an alloy which was available on the GT but they are just similar.

I think if you take one off & check the back you'll find the following info: Part No.5901396 & ET 40.5 (offset 40.5mm) (alloy on the top right in the attachment below)
A GT alloy should have ET 35 (35mm)

Well, finally got round to taking a wheel off and there are two numbers stamped starting with 5901:

5901397
5901241

The offset is indeed 40.5mm.

Anyone know the difference between a 5901396 and a 5901397? Colour perhaps?

I've just checked ePer:

part 5901396 is "kit wheels" which is 4 wheels

part 5901397 is "wheel" which is 1 wheel

I'm not sure how 5901241 is different from 5901397, maybe try asking in the Tech Lounge where David C, Pud or someone else can help.

Cheers David.

I was looking over some old threads on spacers. According to David C anything less than 12mm is dodgy. I don't want to widen the track that much so I think I'll keep an eye out for some proper GT wheels.
