They're too small for an 8C.
Any 8C would look ridiculous wearing such small wheels!

i know the original ones that you shared already stunning staff but i said 18" ones are replicas and i disagree with you on ridiculous looking. by the way, you're right about rims type. namely, 5 holes rims correct description but they're on the market as 8c rims for alfa romeo in turkey so that i quoted them as 8c.

Well if you read what you put then no, zero mention of 'replica', just 18'' 8C, the only reason I posted in the first place.
And I said 18'' 5-holes are too small for an 8C, not a 159 - I guarantee you'll never see an 8C with 18'' wheels because it will indeed look completely ridiculous.

i supposed you'd said ridiculous looking 159 with 18" replicas. Now i understand what you mean and yes , 8c defitenetly terrible looking with 18" rims

I had recently blanked the egr after having some issues with my 159 and just today I installed an egr simulator by myself, so its not that difficult, after the advice I had in alfa owner by other user. It simulates the egr so there is no light.

This serpente has 58k kms road experience now ;) i only use 1000-1500 kms per year and thus the main problem is battery. I ve just replaced old one with Duracell 72a and we are happy with it. For not to tire alfa, i bought a daily car, Mitsubishi colt 1.3 benzina and attach it as a servant of 159 :) buona guida a tutti !
