Forgive me for posting this here, just I know some of you will be going to social event on Saturday and wanted to see if anyone was interested ahead of that!

Selling 4 x 16" Alloy Wheels + Tyres just off my 159. (Upgraded to 17"s)

Overall good condition. Some dings and marks where the local tyre installer chipped them with their wheel tools, but generally very good. Still come up clean and shiny.
Quite a bit of tar present in the nooks and crannys, so could benefit from a deep clean. As could the insides. No curbing though.

Tyres are all good and legal. 2 are budget (TALON) and 2 are Michellins. All with good tread. I've put the pics up. I'd say between 3 and 5.5mm across the board. Tyres are: 215/55/R16

Here's the pics

Hello again Sarge.

When I sold my 16" alloys from the 159 I did it via ebay. Unfortunately I only got £165 for the 4, and that was with 4x good Toyo TR1 tyres on them.
The reason being that people look to buy alloys as an upgrade, and whether we like it or not, the 16s are not seen as an upgrade! And to add to the issues, these wheels won't fit any other Alfa other than a 159. Even the Brera wont fit them as it has larger brakes.
I hope someone wants them off you for a set of winter wheels, fitting winter tyres. But I think you might need to look at the price. I bought a set of 18" Horseshoe alloys off a fellow member for that money, and they all had legal tyres on.......

Oh, and the new wheels look fantastic on you car!

Very true mate.
Got them on eBay at the moment and have a few watchers.
At the end of the day I want them shifted, so will listen to any sensible offers!

Useless.

Looks like some time waster has won my wheels on eBay. No response.

So frustrating :(
