  1. Motip 12 ml touch up pen paint reference (color code) for Veloce 19 inch rims

    Alfa Giulia
    Dear Alfisti friends! I have recently acquired a Giulia with 19 inch veloce rims (grey anthracite) and the previous owner had made some significant scratches on the rims when hitting the curbs :( I was wondering if anyone can advise me a color code/reference from MOTIP which I could buy, so I...
  2. New rims, new colour

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    O a recent visit to Neil Catlows in Haslingdon for a replacement bonnet due to damage caused by a falling roof tile I also bought a set of 18" wheels that needed a refurb so painted them in anthracite which I had been thinking of doing for a while but worried they would be too dark. Now they...

  5. Rims for winter tyres.

    Alfa Giulia
    Sorry for - again - stepping over the border, but I got no response on Stelvio QF thread, and I believe Giulia QF has same brakes. I took delivery of my vehicle with 20" winters on - sadly - OE SILVER rims. I will put my summer tyres on OE rims in spring, and need new - black - rims for next...
  6. Wider tyres on existing rims?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Does anyone know whether it would be possible to fit wider tyres to my existing 18" wheels? The tyres are currently 225/40/18. It looks as if the arches could accommodate slightly wider tyres and I'd thought about moving up to 235s? Thanks
  7. Spare set of wheels / rims for Quadrifoglio

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys - I bought a set of QF/QV replica wheels for £800 from Autolusso but when attempting to fit them it turns out the front ones do not fit the Quadrifoglio brake calipers (also the locking wheel nuts don't fit)... which is a pain since I had ordered winter tyres and had them all fitted...

  9. '12 Giulietta Veloce Rim Colour

    Alfa Giulietta
    Afternoon guys! My Giulietta fell victim to it's first curb today - super gutted. Does anyone know the paint colour/code for these rims? It's a '12 plate Guiletta Veloce if that helps. I've have a look through some other threads but can't seem to find the right one. Cheers in advance! Harry

  11. |Air leaking out of the rims

    Alfa Giulietta
    Good evening i have started to lose air through the rims of both front wheels. I have taken it to 2 places now and they both said that the air is getting out through the paint beginning to flake on the Alloy-wheels. The tyres are fine and the wheels haven't been kerved. Is this a common fault...
  12. MiTo Rims HELP!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi! I am in desperate need of help. So, I need new wheels for my MiTo QV and I wanted Japan Racing rims either JR18 or JR3, and I was thinking either a 8x17 ET35, 8x17 ET25, 7x17 ET25. The thing is no distributor accepts returns, so if they don't fit, I'm stuck with them (my main concern is...
  13. Giulia Ti/Veloce Sport rims on the Stelvio

    Alfa Stelvio
    Hi there. Anyone has the 19” x 8J 5-hole rims of the Giulia Ti/Veloce on the Stelvio? Or, in the limit, the ones of the Quadrifoglio on a “regular” Stelvio version? Any pics and your shared experience will be greatly appreciated.
  14. GT Blackline rims on GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I'm looking into getting a set of GT Blackline rims for my GTV. They are 18/45/225. My GTV is a phase 2 but not lowered stock suspension. Does anyone have some photos of GTV with Blackline rims with standard suspension? Is is a straight swap to my 16 inch teardrops? Would it be too...
  15. Eibach's and different sizes of rims

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I'm thinking of lowering the car slightly in January by fitting Eibach springs (30-35mm). In wintertime, I drive on 17-inch rims with 225/50 tyres and in summer on 19 inch Ti's with 235/40 tyres. So the springs will be fitted when I am still on the winter wheels. Will there be a...
  16. 159 Q4 SW tyre options for 17" rims

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    On my previous Q4 saloon I ran Acceleras, after I melted away the part-worn Pirelli P Zero Neros that were on it when I got the car. I've now exchanged the saloon for an SW, which currently has Goodyear EfficientGrip rubber on. One has a bulge and 2 are very worn, so I'm looking at different...
  17. Best Rims For Good Handling

    Alfa GTA
    Thinking of getting some OZ Racing Allegeritta HLT titanium wheels for the GTA as they are the lightest ones I can find without going to crazy expensive carbon jobbies. Anyone here had any experience with these or know any better ones?

  19. New Rims

    Alfa Giulia
    arrived today, but have no 'middle bits' (caps?) on them. the pic showed them as wheels on a car, didnt expect a car, but expected the middle bits. the part numbers are correct for the rims, but should the caps have come with them do people think? i just assumed they were partof the rim.
  20. Replacing 'corroded' foglamp rims on my G?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I noticed on a good clean on my G recently that the 'chrome' plastic rim on both my front fog lamps is corroding (I know its not metal so technically it can't but the plastic coating is lifting/bubbling so visually similar) and both rims are cracked too. It's a 2015 2.0 JDTM so not yet two years...
