I believe staggered 8x19, 9x19 offsets for 2.0L 5-holes are 33 and 44.5 respectively, so it does beg the question that those so-called OEM wheels are the same as the OE wheels.
Well, I believe your wrong then.

Front: 8J, ET33 - tyre size 225/40 R19
- part code 156113555 (dark), 156131644 (silver)

Rear: 9J, ET34 - tyre size 255/35 R19
- part code 156119556 (dark), 156131649 (silver)

It appears I may be wrong. Could the rears be different in the North American market?

I never noticed any 9x19 ET44,5 for the Giulia..
What’s the part number?

There are two different versions, one for proper Quadrifoglio, one for normal ones. All codes are for the dark painted wheels.

Quadrifoglio
Front: 8.5J, ET34 - part code 156115200 - tyre size 245/35 R19
Rear: 10J, ET41 - part code 156115203 - tyre size 285/30 R19

Veloce
Front: 8J, ET33 - part code 156113555 - tyre size 225/40 R19
Rear: 9J, ET34 - part code 156119556 - tyre size 255/35 R19

Wonder in what setup they are used...

Listed as Giulia “fast”

The plot thickens!

If not NoAm vs. EU, perhaps there are different offsets between RWD and Q4 rear wheels in staggered configurations?

The 10 spoke 18” turbine wheels are made in Thailand to, so seems like most standard Alfa wheels are made there. Google was not helpfull where that factory is located...
Is there some economic tie between Thailand and Italy? My Vittoria (an Italian company) bicycle tires are made in Thailand. Never had any complaints except the price...

We need an expert to chime in :)

All staggered kits on ebay are:
Front: 8J ET33 156113555
Rear: 9J ET34 156119556

The 9x19 ET44.5 156107525 only comes as a seperate rim, and there are not many off these listed.

Can't see how the ET44,5 would fit the Giulia?
Wheels would sit narrower than stock 225/40
Even the 10J are "only" ET41

Also nothing about ET 44.5 at wheel-size.com

With the 8x19 wheel size, does it matter if it is ET33 or ET34 if all four tires are the same? I am asking for Stelvio.Thanks

So I just snapped a picture real quick of the rim inside of a 2017 Guilia 2.0 Q4 with squares.
They are originals wtih Alfa Romeo and Thailand stamps.

8.0Jx19H2 ET33 156107474
So this is a "new" part number identical to 156113555 :)

Now we need someone with staggered 8x19 / 9x19 Giulia setup to check in with partnumbers, especially the 9x19 rears

My local dealer has a 2020 Q4 with staggered wheels on the lot. It was the first time I had seen it. I will try to visit and snap a pic if I can. I really want that setup on mine.

I have the staggered wheels on my Q4, but the 5-hole Sport wheel design, so yet another variable, but perhaps interesting. It’s in the shop awaiting a windscreen— as it has been the past 2 weeks!— but hopefully today it will be done.

So the 18” ?

No, 19”. In NoAm market, the Sport 5-Hole design is 19” only; they’re pictured on the car in my signature below.

oh - my bad.
Btw, love those wheels on that color.
Now I remember - when I bought mine, local dealer had a Q4 with same wheels standing in showroom, also staggered.
Will pay them a visit to check ET...
By the look of your car, most certain ET34, since wheels would be much closer to suspension at ET44,5

I would take all of this with a grain of salt.

Manufacturers are normally very protective of their OEM contracts, and wouldn't risk selling wheels made on the same mold into the aftermarket while a vehicle is still in production...

I have seen LOTS of products made by BOSCH. If you buy this BOSCH part from lets say VW, then the part is stamped "VW" as if VW made this part.
You can buy excatly same BOSCH part at a parts supplier. Sometimes you'll notice the "brand" simply is grinded off at factory, and sold for half the price.

TRW are sub supplier for loads of suspension parts for at least Alfa 159. When you buy them from Alfa they charge double for the "Alfa Romeo" stamp.
Buy them from parts dealer, Alfa Romeo is grinded of, or simply stamped TRW.

Found a new set "5EQ Perfomance burnished alloy rims" (aka 5 hole) staggered 8.0Jx19 ET33 / 9.0Jx19 ET34 set from ebay.it and paid 2.300 USD
At local Alfa dealer it was 4.700 USD....they are just crazy expensive here.

The Q4 Veloce in post #36 was listed at 710.000 dkr (112.600 usd).
Only extra was paint and 19"---
Got a message from same alfa dealer about the same 9GF 19" Sport 5 holes partnumber 156144299
"We cant inform you ET, since it's not noted in the parts list"
