Finally got a set.

17". Very good but not perfect condition - didnt pay much for them though :)

Getting them mounted up on Friday with a nice new set of 225 45 Vredestein Ultrac Cento tyres.

The Mrs. is going to kill me, but its worth it :)

I just can't see what all the fuss is about with these wheels... :confused:

Maybe, though, if enough folk say they are great, then surely they must be great, right?

Nah. They're basically just another set of fake 2-piece alloys? - nothing much special about them at all. :tired:

Horses for courses 'n' all that...

Jesus who shat on your parade.

Grumpy old git.

*(I like them because they are very similar to the OE 16" Lusso wheels, which are my favourite OE wheel except for teles). These keep that style, go just a bit bigger and look a whole lot sexier with the bolts.

Have a nice day!:thumbup:

Lighten up! !!

Wait until you see them on. By far the best 916 wheel.

Aw, stop yer cryin' Euroboi - it's only a bit o' banter!

Those wheels are okay, just nothing special - especially for £400 secondhand... :yikes:

I got a set put on my spider 3.0, not fitted and needed 10mm. spacer because of front brake caliper too big. but at the end it's worth it.

Well, here in Britainland, you can get a set of brand new wheels for not a lot more than that.
Thats an interesting logic! :jester:

..there is no other wheel for that generation of alfa :) Except maybe the zender milano..

Anyhow congrats, they're a really cool wheel on the GTV. They're a bit soft mind, so be careful of the potholes....

Good to know, luckily here in NL there arent too many of them.... lots of speed bumps though.

If anyone is only the lookout for tyres at the moment, I got a stonking deal via oponeo.

Vred Ultrac Cento in 225 45 17 - €300 for 4 tyres delivered!

Just weighed one.

10.8kgs

Seeing as specific 'light weight' 17" wheels weigh in at around the 7-7.5kg mark, that doesnt seem too shabby at all :)
