the wheels are simmons fr 16x7, i bought them to replace the black and chrome 17x7 wheels as they look too modern and cheap, the simmons will be painted gloss black, chrome bolts and polished outter rims 8)

Good call on the Simmons - top wheels. Those 17's might be saved by a paint job - all silver or black perhaps?

yer i love simmons, great quality wheels! i would prefer 17" simmons but they cost a fair bit more,
mm painting the 17s matt black would have looked good and the cheaper option! :roll: but they alredy have been sold

My GTV6 with 164 OE wheel, not the best pic as car was in my garage but still looks sweet. Maybe worth looking for an old set.

Just test-fitted a set of Atev wheels on my GTV project... These are 8,5 & 10J x 17" ET 15. Originally these were 5x112 but i had them redrilled to 5x98.

Almost fits... Needs work on the fenders to clear the tyres. Didn't check if it steers so that might need some work also. :wink: But looks good. 8)

Whats the difference between ATEV and AZEV... Besides the spelling of course. They look almost the same. Beauty!

I have 17x8 et 30 with 225/45/17 and on the 75 it virtually rubs every freaking thing. I had to call a guy to roll all the fenders, then almost max out the caster at the front, shift my evo bumper at the front by a few mm and then put an 8mm spacer in the back and. The curse of small wheel wells.

So much for my plans of puttin 25.4mm spacers in the front and back :mrgreen: perhaps next time.

I think GTV6 guys have hit a bit better.

10" rear will give you issues unless you set the ride height very high, my 9" are very tight with 235/40-17 and the same rims/tires n the front needs quite a lot of hammer time... 8)

Very high ride height? :shock: That's not gonna happen for sure.. :twisted:

I'm not sure these wheels are going on the GTV, they were supposed to go on my Giulietta... But if they end up on the GTV the rear arches will be modified to make them fit under a low car.. :mrgreen:

Atev or Azev, i don''t know the difference to be honest. they are exactly the same. :?
