Wheels from Italy?

Lads I was looking at a set of alloy wheels for my Spider on Ebay.it

F395 ALFA DUCATI KIT 4 CERCHI DA 17'' ET35 x ALFA ROMEO 147 156 GT SPYDER GTV | eBay

Now my ideas on alloy wheels aside nobody that is selling these wheels will ship them Ireland and so far I have only found them in Italy.

Has anybody else done this before or have Ideas on it?

in the 156, 147, gt threads there are many discussion concerning wheels that you get direct from Italian company . As far as I am aware several ppl in the UK have bought them and had them delivered so I cant see it been a problem delivering to ireland

Call them and ask. Don't mind what it says on ebay. I am sure they will ship anywhere.

That's a good looking alloy, just be aware though of the potential issues with diamond cut alloys e.g. lacquer peel & corrosion due to stone chips, salt & harsh wheel cleaners etc.

You know thats a very good point, I am not 100% sold on them either. Maybe I will keep looking.

I've actually seen those before. Think they look great but I'd need to see them fitted on the car beforehand or at least see a few pictures of them on other cars. Decent price too.

Need to find out the PCD.
I think 156s are 5 x 98 (David P?)

Yes that's correct, 156 & 147 fitment is identical, PCD is also the same on GTV/Spider but Offset varies & is different on GT, GTA & GTV/Spider

PCD 5 x 98,
Centre Bore 58.1,
Offset (ET) 40.5 on a standard 7 x 17"
