Only four hours after having had 4 new Goodyear F1 assymetrics fitted to my daughter's new (to her) 2013 Giulietta Sportiva a projecting drain cover wrecked one of the tyres and dinged the rim. Another new tyre fitted today, rim not buckled or cracked but will need repair or replacement. Any...
I may be about to close a deal on a set of beautiful refurbed Speedline pepper pot split rim style wheels, they are perfect apart from the fact they are missing the plastic studs, i am aware these are likely impossible to find (please correct me if im wrong there) i read the hole is 5mm, so...
What are the 17 inch standard rim weights for 932 series?
I have a 156 sport pack with multispoke 17 inch rims. And as I'm planning on taking it to some track days I'm thinking of putting some lighter rims on it. OZ super and ultraleggera are a bit pricey but I've heard that 17 Ti rims are few...
I've just bought a set of GTV rims, but it appears that one of 'em is leaking a bit. After some further investigation I found that the valve stem is cracked. At first this valve looks like it can be screwed out with a 14mm socket. It looks like:

Hello fellow memebrs,
I have purchased an Alfa Romeo GT and I am not that fond of the rims as they look a bit boy racerish. I have therefore, purchased these tri-spoke phone dial rims. I am going to refurb them and was thinking of painting them in a unique colour or colour combination. Does...

I cut them off myself with a grinder and got new ones to replace them.
Took it back to be...

1. Where car one buy rim tape for cars?
2. Will rim tape for bikes work on cars?
I was thinking of adding reflective rim tape to my GTV's wheels. Because GTV... :yes:

Has / does anyone use Rimblades or a similar product ?
Not too sure about the colours but the black looks ok.
The idea is good but are they any good in practice ?
Im not a serial kerb cruncher but I have knicked wheels a few times and Im thinking maybe try these if I get my wheels powder coated...
Can you recommend a good rim refurbishment place in London... preferably North/East London? I have managed to curb my Brera's multi-spoke rims... not too serious I think it is salvageable.
I picked up a nearly new Goodyear tyre for the GTA today and would like to make a full size spare.
Has anyone got a 17" rim to go on the GTA (330mm brakes) - any style, any colour, any condition - even a bit buckled! Must be cheap.
