Alfa Romeo 166

19"x8.5" inch Wheels 166-99

Hello. I have just bought new Rims (Zito CSL) 19"x8.5" with 235/35 tyres. The rims have ET40 but but what is the recommendation? someone said ET30. Do I need to buy Spacers 10mm? or should I test them out before I buy spacers? How can I check how much I need to space out?

maybe dumb to think about this now but do you think the wheels will hit the shock absorbers?

Greatful for any tip.

Measure and measure again. The fact that you already bought the wheel is not such a big issue. Fit the wheel and then measure.

The 166 2.0ts does not have Brembos does it? Fi so it will most probably foul the Brembos

8.5 is quite wide but the offset is generally the issue, from the face of the hub backwards...

You will only see once you fit the wheel and then measure how far from the shock it is. The moment you start fitting a spacer you will now have to measure how much space their is from the face of the outside of the wheel to the arch lining...

I'm running 8.0" with 15mm spacers and it fits snugly on my GQV.

Hello and thanks for replying!

No Bremos on my car. Yes 8.5 is quite wide but It MUST work haha. if I do not have spacers it might hit the shock absorbers. If I have spacers the wheel can go to far out and hit the fender instead. Damn I need to find the perfect measure for the spacers to make it work.
