I'm just about to puchase a 156 V6, when I do I will be removing the teledial alloys abd probably giving them to a local scrap yard, yes I hate them.

Sorry to disappoint Pablo, but we're all pretty keen on Alfa alloys here. Please tell me you're not planning on replacing them with some dead obvious 5-spokers or something?
When I first got my 145 QV, I thought about different alloys, but then Rick locked me ina cupboard for a week, with only dry bread and water, and I saw the error of my ways.
I wasn't sure about 'ringed' or 'holed' alloys rather than spoked ones, but I'm a convert now. The point is that just looking at the alloys, you may prefer spokes, but looking at the car as a whole, the OEM ones really really set Alfa's off. I can quite easily sit and gaze at the side view of my Bella, with a happy little smile on my face, for ages.

Actually, having seen some green cloverleafs properly at Oulton Park, I prefer the look of mine. So there. :p

Pablo, here's a very small picture of 18" Mille Miglia on a 156. :D



And another with 17" forged aluminum Tecnomagnesio:



And another with 18" Zender Siena (non-OEM) made for Alfa:

Those Mille Miglias look a bit like the new Ti wheels from a distance. (If you squint).

Those Tecnomagnesio wheels are cool because they say Tecnomagnesio on them. Don't particularly like the style, but Tecnomagnesio sounds very motorsporty.
:D
Tecnomagnesio
:cool:

Thankz for the pics LAtino... I smell a hint of photoshop ...sniff sniff..

The reason why I'm asking for pics is because I'd like to see what a 156 looks like not sitting on the original alfa alloys, if I don't like the overall look then I'll probably get the 17" Selaspeeds, either way those 16 inch teledials are history!

more pics, more pics!

But, the wheels are Novitec, so maybe the spoiler is Novitec too.

But since I bought them, I thought they look ok on the SW. Plus they're nice and light. wink
