17 inch wheels for 166

If anyone knows of an Alfa 166 on 17 inch wheels (the multispoke ones) being scrapped anywhere please could they let me know. I have tried traynors and a few places off partfinder and findapart but no luck so far.
The wheel is a 17 inch and the bolts are 5 x 108 diameter (so the 156 wheels wont fit)
Mine have 225/45 tyres on
Thanks for your help!

You'll be doing well to find a single wheel over here (in particular the multispoke variety).

Try asking in the 166 lounge.

They're possibly even rarer than supersports!
Best of luck with your search...

There's a guy in the 166 lounge selling a rare coloured 166 that has the wheels you are looking for - he's now offering it for spares or repair.

Honestly, it will probably be easier/cheaper just to get a full set of the pre-facelift 166 16" or 17" wheels in the meantime and wait until a single multispoke comes along.

The other alternative is to have a look on e-bay.it (the Italian site, not the UK), where you might at least find a replica.

Can I ask - are you looking to replace a damaged wheel or just want a full set?

If it's the former, do you know for sure that the wheel can't be fixed?

Cowboys Ted, they're a bunch of cowboys!

if your not too woried about them being replicas, then try Alloy Wheels - Performance Alloys.com® - The Alloy Wheel Experts they are based up north and have a decent selection or genuine alloys and reps.

Thanks for all your responses.
Its to replace a damaged wheel. I don't think it can be repaired such that it wont have a buckle but I'm looking into that too
I've borrowed a laguna wheel for the time being so I'm not without a spare and will try all the places you all have suggested.
Appreciate the help...
