I have switched to a staggered setup on my Ti, and am selling my 19 x8 inch Dark 5 Hole wheels with tires - all like new. A great upgrade for the base Giulia and Ti's with 18's.
Tires are Pirelli P7 run flats. OE TPMS. Without center caps. PM for more info.

Glad you kept the same wheels and not some aftermarket rims. The 5 hole rims are so beautiful and its unique to the Giulia. In my opinion, putting aftermarket rims to replace the 5 hole rims is a downgrade and makes the very unique Giulia more look more "common".

I see what you mean and I am curious to see what the "multi hole" wheels looked like in the past. Was the 8C the first one in the modern retro styling?

In my opinion the Giulia's five-hole wheels look better than the 4C's. Putting my helmet and body armor on now.

How were you able to secure the 9" rears? I would like to set my Q4 up with the staggered set.

Agreed. The uneven circle swoops on the 4C are done for ventilation I'm sure, but it is a little chunky. I would think they are directional too.

The Dark Five Holes are the hottest wheels I have seen in a long time. Pure Italian in style.

Also located in Northern California and wanted to see if these are still available.

As a new Alfa owner I am short on posts, but if so, please message me!

Thanks!

Interestingly if you check, 18" wheels that are styled almost identically to the Giulia 5 holes are available for Giulietta. I am not sure if the offsets are the same, but the bolt pattern is the same. However, Giulietta has 12mm lug bolts while Giulia has 14mm lug bolts; it is not clear if they can be adapted for use. I don't have any info on weight ratings either.

The 4C wheels look like 5 horseshoes to me. Although both 4 leaf clovers and horseshoes are symbols of luck, I don't think there is any history of using a horseshoe symbol at Alfa Romeo.

IMO the 19" Giulia 5 hole wheels are amongst the best looking wheels on the market. It is too bad that there is no light weight version.

While nice, the Giulietta wheel differs enough from the Giulia's to make the choice clear to me.

I called them "omegas" when I first saw them but can easily see the horseshoes, too. Do you remember the Ford Ranger/Explorer "deer hoof" wheels?

I agree wholeheartedly.

Sometimes I think of them similar to phonedials after growing up in the world of transaxle Porsches with my dad ... but the Italians do it much better than the Germans ahaha

I've always had a soft spot for these:

OMG, don't get on the whole "wanna be bonneville speedster" wheel band wagon. That was all the rage in the 90s. The chunky wheels would not die a natural death. Many had to be removed and killed by firing squad.
:D
My 348 with original wheels and a first gen Viper from the same era.
