Hmmm Are these really Alfa wheels?

Hi all, bought these wheels a few months ago as I knew I was buying a GT and was going to upgrade from the current 17" multispokes, I know I've seen them on another Alfa, but my local Alfa Romeo dealer are saying they're not Alfa wheels anyone know which car they are off. And if anyone knows of a set of reasonably priced 18" multispokes I'd be very interested

Should be stamped into the back of one of the spokes, either a manufacturer name or part number etc.

I don't recognise them as Alfa wheels.

As Dan says, look for some details on them.

OK, I'm convinced they are not genuine, now to figure out what they are from.

No name on the wheels, but they do say:-
8.0Jx18CHx49.0 (OK so that's the wheel size)
2N93 -1007-BA
AWI/K3
T1157

I think it may be time for my friend Google to assist

16" wheels.....I'm too young to be comfy

I think they are made for Alfa but not OEM there are a few Italian companies (can be found on eBay) that offer replica wheels for a lot, and especially alfas. For example you can get 159ti wheels that will fit a 147/156/GT etc.

My guess is that thy originated from one of those companies.

Now a set of 18" 159ti wheels would be nice, seriously don't want to go bling & I think the ti wheels are nice, but quite subdued. Any links?

Just on my phone at the mo, if you search in the 147/156/GT help lounge for 'are multi spokes soft' I have posted a link in there. From an Italian eBay shop and they look lovely was considering a pair myself. If not I'll post the link soon.

Here's the link but you get their proper eBay shop on your laptop, bit of a nightmare on your phone.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1710015960...84.m1438.l2649

If as happend in the past it takes you to the 159 PCD set, just search for '147'im their shop search bar and they will come up along with all other 5x98 Alfa wheels.
