To change me wheels yes or no?

I am thinking of changing my wheels on the 156 but not sure to what to be honest? Anyone have any suggestions?

Yep man. CH are the dogs. I want them on mine. I have yet to see a car they donlt suit tbh.

Zender milanos are like hens teeth. I would relly like some 17" Teledials but the price they go for is ridiculous. There are 3 sets on here that have been for sale for ages.

Ch's would be nice all right. But there a bit common. Siennas would be class but as you say hard to find etc.

I wasn't sure about them when I saw the pics but they look good in the metal

PS Cathal 159 wheels won't fit the 147/156/GT which has a PCD of 5x98 whereas it is 5x108 on the 159

Thanks for that Dave. I was thinking the 159 wheels wouldn't fit. Teledials are nice but a bit too common for me lol. I am a left field wheel person

Left Field

How about Alfa 16" sport alloys if you are thinking about going down in size, a strong wheel that is easy to clean & looks good.

You can still get the horseshoe style in 5x98.

7x17. Silver 7 hole wheels. for Alfa Romeo 156 parts and spares

I've always been a multispoke fan myself.

Seen a nice 147 with these alloys, very nice indeed. Slap teledials on and get em powder coated matt black... nice.

None of the Above. The Ti wheels are **** poor soft and it's not a Ti so it won't be getting them. But keep the suggestions coming
