8c Wheels

I really like the Photo shop pic that was on here of a GTV with 8c alloys


I have seen the one's off EB (17's) which look more like Mito style.
Is it possible to order 8c alloys and would they fit my car?
Not up on this off set or stub pattern Jobie's

Thanks
BD

Re: 8c Wheels

I've ordered some (the ebspares replicas) for my 156 ... should be arriving later this week
I very much doubt that real 8C one will fit and I doubt you'd be able to afford them anyway ... looking at how much the paint on the 8C costs ...

As they say "If ya have to ask the price.....you can't afford them!"

So, does anyone have any idea of the fitments with the 8c wheels or recommend any where that would make 18" replicas of the 8c?

Re: 8c Wheels

Oh no no no no no... that just doesn't look right to me... sorry, not my cup of tea at all, which is usually coffee actually...

The 17" Cup teledials look about as good as it gets on the GTV IMO. Each to their own obviously

Saw a Brera at Mangoletsi with these style wheels on - looked pretty good on there. In a dark metallic silver

Just called them and it would cost the best part of 10k for a one piece set!
Waiting for Alfa to get back to me now!!

Re: 8c Wheels

..But surely getting some adaptors to make them fit is a hell of alot cheaper than 10k to get some wheels made up?

The GTV has a pcd of 98 ... the Brera 108 ... that is one hell of a difference, the width of the adapter you'd need for that size change would be so big that I would have thought that the offset would be too big ...
