  1. 16x7.5 wheels on a Skinny 155?

    Alfa 155
    Hi guys, I'm considering a set of 16x7.5 wheels for my early Skinny 2.0 8V 155, and I'm worried that 7.5 will be too wide and have rubbing issues. I don't know the offset yet I need to ask the seller., but before I waste his time does anybody have experience with such wide wheels on a skinny...
  2. Any alternative to skinny spare for 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After being nearly stranded in N. Yorkshire on a weekend and unable to find a replacement for a shredded tyre, I am wary of thought of travelling to south of France this month -again on a weekend - without a substitute for the skinny tyre. It seems steel wheels are only made in 16 inch - any...

  12. Skinny vs wide - what's interchangeable?

    Alfa 155
    Locally advertised skinny non runner has cropped up again, I was wondering what is compatible with my widebody? I need mirrors, internal odd bits of trim which is OK but I have no use for 14 inch alloys, bumpers etc. I could stick all the lights in the loft but the main thing is the rear...

    I never really realized that the pre '95 and the post '95 series were different , i thought there was just slight aesthetic differences ... but regarding to what i can read here it seems that there's also technical differences : what are they ??? :confused:
  18. Skinny & Wide Q4.. Any mechanical differences?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello gang! Does anyone know if there are any significant differences other than bodywork panels and interior trim between skinny Sport '92 & '93 Q4s and widebody Sport '95 Q4s? Somehow I just don't see alfa spending a tonne of money to increase the track and change other mechanical components...
