GTV.....New Wheels !

I finally got around to putting the new wheels on yesterday.....I have to say they made a huge difference not only in looks but also in grip.

If anyone is interested in my old 16s PM me.

Just never have liked them, GTA teledials also look excellent on a GTV. Still waiting on any chance I can get to head into lee garage by the way to sit in that brera.

Ahh cool, I liked the ones on my car their sitting out in the shed doing nothing. You should pop in all right to see it and see how you get on in it. The Lee are fairly sound to deal with. Or come to the next meet I'm sure Rikd will be there.

Re: GTV.....New Wheels !

Lol, but it's from the devil fuel I actually am beging to like the 156. Drive the old mans Ti a lot and it's fun love the engine, so lazy but loves to be revved too. I annoyed a beemer driver a few weeks ago with it without me even knowing they where trying to pass me on the inside and I was overtaking in the overtaking lane watching ahead of me haha.

Re: GTV.....New Wheels !

Hmm, diesel, I almost get drawn towards it when you hear specs of 2.4, everything sounds great, but starting up a diesel sounds wrong. 2.4 or 2.2 jts, dunno which yet i would go for.

k, no more stealing of the thread. night!

No they're not originals but very similar to the ones fitted on 159s and Breras. They were cur specifically for Alfa though so they fit perfectly
