  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I recently replaced my 16" GT wheels with some 17" Multispokes that came from a 147. They fit OK and everything but look like they are sitting a bit narrower than the 16s I had. The arches hang over a long way! I've since found out that 147 wheels are ET 40 and the GT ones ET35 - so my...

    I have these available. They are 18 months old, come with all the longer bolts. I paid £140, would let them go for £100+ shipping. Listed here: Alfa Romeo Shop - Tuning, Styling, Fanartikel und Modellautos - Alfa Romeo Spurverbreiterung 2x 12 mm - Distanzscheiben Spurverbreiterung 2x 12 mm...

    So i gave Speedline GTA 17 inch rims on my GT. ET of wheels is 35 and the car is lowered. It's look pretty bad (you can see on the pictures). So can me anyone give me any suggestion which spacers should I use (how many mm). I was thinking about 15mm.

    Just ordered a two sets of 20mm spacers for all four courners. Does anyone run 20mm all round?

    Gentlemen, I need spacers made up. Deriam's Engineering has popped up as the go-to guys. I have two questions: (1) Do we have M12 or M14 bolts on GTV's? Do I go for bolts that go right through the wheel and spacer and how long would it need to be if I'm going for a 20mm spacer? (2) Anyone here...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    Thinking about fitting wheels spacers to the recently acquired MiTo. Looking for 16mm but not sure whether to do just the rears or all 4. Any thoughts on this ??? These are the items in question...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I know that wheel spacers can enhance handling and looks characteristics, but I would like to find out if it will affect performance or acceleration one way or the other. I am thinking of fitting 15mm spacers to all for wheels of my GT (937). Thanks.
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I need 10mm spacers to fit some nice new Alfa wheels that I have acquired. My old wheels are standard 16" Lusso alloys with a 30.5 offset. The new wheels are 17" with a 40.5 offset. Any advice on fitting and where to get the spacers from would be much appreciated. Also does anyone know if I...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I want to swap the Super's 15" wheels and 155 tyres for a spare set of refurbed 14" with new 185's. The problem is that my axle is off centre by over an inch so even with a 5mm spacer the near side inner tyre still rubs on the axle strap mount and 5mm is the max I can space it out and keep...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, I had the 60K service on my GT last week and thought it worth having my new winter wheels/tyres fitted - of course, the weather remains resolutely mild :rolleyes:. She's a Cloverleaf, shod normally with 225/40/ZR18's, currently residing in my hallway! I think I can see an '8J' written on...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I want to get some 17" GT multispoke alloys with ET 35 offset. In order to fit these on my 2 litre Spider do I only need 5mm Hubcentric spacers or do I need 10 - 15mm spacers ? Thanks
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just been helping to put my GT Blackline on a trailer due to the clutch release bearing failing and noticed that the nearside rear wheel/tyre seems much closer to the spring than the offside. The car recently had some bodywork done on that side, including a wheel refurb (due to my mother...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, Where to get Wheel Spacers for 98 Alfa Spider, anybody had any experience with wheel spacers, the good type with the locating collet etc ? Like what sizes are recommended for front & rear etc. thanks :)
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, The tyres on the Super are pretty old and I've got a spare set of wheels with good tyres that I want to use for winter but they are a different size. They're fine on the front but on the rear the inner side of the tyre rubs on the axle strap mount. The original tyres are 155/15/82s...

    I have a set off spacers for the Gtv for sale. It enables you to fit alloys from the 156/147/Gt range and correct the offset. Useful if you want to have the Teledials look on the cheap and use 16" 156 teles. Maybe for winter wheels. 2 are hubcentric 20 mm and 2 are 10 mm flat. I was going to...
  18. Alfa GTA
    Hi Guys, I have 2 x 12mm and 2 x 10mm hubcentric spacers for sale. I had them on the car previously with no issues. I have 16 wheel bolts sitting around which are perfect for the 12mm spacers but for the 10mm they would need to be shortened by 1-2mm incase someone wants those as well...
  19. Alfa GTA
    Right been reading for a few months and finally got my head round spacers and suspension set ups. I am going purely for aesthetics: 10mm spacers on the front and 15mm at the rear.. Would that cause me issue? It's currently on standard suspension but looking at the Eibach pro kit lowering...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I know there are multiple spacer questions on here but I was hoping for a few more details. After having a look around I have decided that I am going to go for 16mm Eibachs on the front, and the 20mm Eibach Bolt onto hub spacers on the rear. For the front I need extended bolts but I cant...
