Re: 8C wheels on a 156

I'd be wary of buying anything on e-bay without using PayPal (seller above only accepts money transfer etc and so doesn't fall within the e-bay protection scheme)

Nice wheels though-offset 35 is spot on for the 156 as well as far as I know. With those sort of gaps between the spokes, you really would need to get some 'flashy' calipers...

Are they really originals at that price?

Re: 8C wheels on a 156

FYI The correct offset for the 147/156 is 40.5mm but 35 means that they will only sit in 5mm further than they should, you could always fit 5mm spacers if there is clearance issues

Yeah, I was thinking of the 156GTA/147GTA where the offset is 35. I was looking at the wheels and arches on the GT at the weekend and it looks like it could take an extra 5mm if I wanted to get them. Need to stop spending though.

Re: 8C wheels on a 156

I'd get in touch with your local DHL and/or shipping agent and get an equivalent quote for an alloy wheel IT/GB.
EUR 60 is very cheap for sending one wheel and I'm in the business.
Like CCOVICH says:

"I'd be wary of buying anything on e-bay without using PayPal (seller above only accepts money transfer etc and so doesn't fall within the e-bay protection scheme)"

Check well before sending any money. My advice if you still want to go forward would be to ask if he has sold any in GB and get in touch. The price announced must be tax free - The postage and packing is still cheap and don't forget the VAT on arrival.
