Something new

Hey people!!!

I have been giving my bella a good clean this evening and my alloys are getting rather tatty

Now I have 2 choices really, keep them and get them refurbed or buy some new alloys but then I have to choose some new ones.

These are the choices in alloys:


1. Blackline alloys
2. SuperSports
3. Multispokes


What would you choose and why people?

SuperSports.

I went for multispokes and although they look good, they tend to take the alfaness out of my 147. Alfas need circular designs IMO

Re: Something new

I'd go for steel wheels with nice shiny hubcaps.

Re: Something new

Get the originals refurbed .......... Multispokes are a bit "Chav" , they are ok on a Peugeot 206 (I suppose), but not on an Alfa.

Cheers to All

Re: Something new

Id go for supersports, or a refurb on the originals, Alfas always seem to look better with Alfa wheels.

Re: Something new

I keep asking myself the same question - my white multi's are well overdue a refurb & TBH I love the white / red combo - but an anthracite even black type finish would look good too IMO
Now I have aded the white serpent decals - I am 99% going for white refurb - sorry for 'rambling'
