Swap Tarquinis for honey pots?????????

Hi Lads,

I have four Tarquinis plus the spare on my 155. Black 5 spoke and with the Alfa logo in the middle but I'd prefer 155 Honey Pots. If anybody is willing to do a straight swap your more than welcome to come and have a look. Condition is good. Few scrapes

Which wheels? What sizes?

Come to think of it - does anyone have a breakdown of the nicknames of all the wheels - it can be very confusing.. I thought the ones linked by mo4 are pepperpots, so what are honey pots? And targuinis?

I've these lying around
Picasa Web Albums - RikD - 146 Wheels
Their for a 146, but i believe the 146 and 155 wheel specs are identical. One has a flat spot, and one has a few scrapes.

Was looking to sell sometime back - but just looking to be rid now.. Are these the teardrop "The EA" mentions?

Hi Lads,

Sorry my fault, i meant to say teardrops not Honey pots and definately not pepperpots. Dont like pepperpots. Speedlines are Tarquinis. The speedlines were brought in to commemorate Gabriele Tarquini's wiping the floor in his 155 in the British TCC in 1994. They were the wheels used in his car. Speedlines is the official name but I know some people call them Tarquini's.
Rikd your wheels are for post 1997 Alfa, I would be looking for the earlier version, see url below

These are what I'm looking for

But this picture is the exact car I have with the speedlines only its in Alfa red

Yeah the earlier one I linked to are called pepperpots and the later ones are teledials like on the later 146s.

The in between ones that Alfa155TS linked to and is looking for.... well I guess teardrop is a good name for them. I dont know what they're called otherwise.

PM sent.
