Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels

they're fantastic looking wheels, if my car was red and I had the dosh I'd get them.
Think you'd need to lower a 147 to make them work though.

I wonder how much Alfa dealers sell them for ?

Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels

Probably looking at about £1400 for a full set with tyres from Alfa.. best call you're local dealer.

Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels

Why not look at MOMO Thunder?? Very very similar and around 800 quid in 18". Tempted myself

Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels



Ducati Corse wheels are much smoother in the center so they look way cooler then the Momo's.

Same thing with the original 18" GT spoke's and the Toora T240. They look similar on first glance but the GT's look way cooler once under the car.

My choice would always be: go for the real thing....

Only the part where I say they look way cooler the shape is a fact.

Ducati wheels look amazing, expensive but still amazing.
The momo alloys look good to, but not a patch on the ducati's imho!

especially when you can buy these Alfa 18's for less than 1/2 that price - nowhere near as good looking though

18" Alfa alloys

Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels

Looking good Joe. Not exactly what you'd call slammed though, do you think they still have some settling to do? Can't believe it was riding 30mm higher than what it is in that photo, must have been like driving a 4x4

They look way too big on a 147, I'll do you a swap if you like.


Seriously though they look good mate (and I want a set)

Re: 147 ducati 18" wheels

I've got the same Alloys as OA and Frank147 on my 156 and I think they look the muts nuts, but I have to say I still like the look of Teledials, and the Ducati alloys at the start of this thread.
