When I bought my 2004 Alfa GT these aftermarket wheels were mounted. They show a ET35, and today I discovered they have a 8mm spacer, 58.1mm center.
I bought a set of wheels I believe were Alfa OEM, refurbished, painted black, "7x17 5x98 Alfa Romeo 147 156 Gt 164 Gtv Gta
" - I'm sure I've seen these, or something very similar on other Alfa GTs. The 8mm spacers from the other wheels don't fit. Without the spacer, the spokes hit the massive front disc caliper. The outer face of the tire is also recessed back within the wheel well.
As I don't speak Polish, I had difficulty communicating with the mechanics at the tire place. They want me to get 4 offset spacers, maybe 15mm.
My questions for the community:
1) do you recognize these rims? Are they not OEM? If they are, what did they come on or what spacer did Alfa use?
2) any recommendations on whether I should get 10mm or 15mm? What size is the hub?
The rears are on without spacers right now. The other rims are in the back of my truck, so I can't read the offset now. I'll check it tomorrow. When they measured from the rear face of mounted tire to inside flat of wheel hub, the depth was the same for the new rims without the spacer and the old rims with the spacer. So, apparently the depth of the spokes is more with the old rims.
Also, the wheel hub centers are different from front to rear.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
