Teledials on a 159-Yes No???

Hi folks.
Am tempted to put 19" GTA Teledials on my 159, would they suit my car do you think, its just a humble 1.8 mpi?

19" GTA Teledials from what a 156, if so they were 17" & anyway 156 alloys won't fit a 159 as they have a different PCD

Or are you talking about some kind of replicas ? If so any link.

Anyway I'd say regardless of engine size 18" is probably big enough as a lot of people with the Ti on 19" are getting very low mileage from the tyres with serious inner edge wear due to tracking issues.

Also 19's would kill any performance in the car

You will ruin the ride, handling and performance.

Im not sure exactly which wheel you are talking about, but the classic teledial i dont think would suit a 159.

That's the most likely option actually as there was never a 159/Brera/Spider GTA

Is that because the increased diameter would affect the gearing?

i.e accelaration would be worse, but top speed would be(in theory) higher

More to do with weight I'd say, the rolling radius should be about the same as long as the correct size tyres are used

I saw some some wheels from a 147 GTA and thought they might look good on my 159, but as you guys say they would kill any preformance out of my asthmatic 1.8 : (

They wouldn't kill the performance because they wouldn't fit on,as David P said the PCD is different.
