So the reasoning behind the 5-hole only wheel option is that the Brembo CCM brake calipers don't clear the rim (or may so narrowly clear that it makes Alfa uncomfortable). So as long as CCM's are required, so are the 5-Holes. Obviously we all saw technicos with CCM's early on but there is a difference between rolling one onto a stage and actual real world driving. So hopefully they're redesigning the tecnicos a bit so that the big brembos fit. Because otherwise Thatboyasad is going to buy something German out of frustration.

Ah dang, well that makes a bit of sense but how come R&D didn't take notice of that before?! Hopefully it can be corrected or just have whomever the manufacture is to change up the offset by a few mm. I really want the Dark Tecnico, I saw them in person and they look so good

Don't worry, I'm not frustrated or will get something else. Although it sucks to be waiting on ordering the vehicle due to the wheels

Yeah I do really like that wheel. The HRE P101's are a pretty solid alternative when it comes down to it though.

The technicos are pretty dope, but I still love that 5 hole dial look.. Its improved to me from the ones on the 4c.. Everyone keeps saying you don't wanna own the first new car, always get the second generation, so the quirks have been worked out.. I been putting a lot of blind faith in Alfa, but dang they are making me nervous...

but the tecnicos can be ordered if you choose the steel brakes right? FWIW the tecnicos are forged whereas the 5 holes are cast. also interesting is that the stelvio's 5 hole wheels look as if they are forged and not cast.

If someone really wants the Tecnico wheels with the CCM brakes a 3mm or 5mm spacer would be a simple solution, and thin spacers like that rarely cause any issues at all.

Yes when those brakes become available.

This is a nice combo:



We recently fit a set of the HRE101's to an Alfa Romeo 4C. This set is finished as "Frozen Gold" which has a frosted type of satin finish to it.

I think they'd look great on the Giulia in any color. Message us for info and the best prices.

Here's a pic:

The above HRE101 is one sweet looking wheel! Forged aluminum construction I assume? Strong, light, but not cheap...worth it, IMO.

Perhaps my biggest pet peeve is how folks spend hard-earned money on awesome cars, then throw on cheap, poorly made RIMZ in large diameters (widths usually more narrow than stock too, if they even notice!!!)...

Second pet peeve is cheap tires. But hey, degrade the performance of your sport sedan...it's your car!

Until more options become available, I'm thinking Tecnico wheels for summer tires, beautiful 5-hole wheels for winter tires...

Oh my god, that 4C picture is incredible. If I wasn't leasing I would have to spring for those wheels. Incredible!

5 Holes are dope on this car. They fit the Italian styling. Nothing against the Technicos.

I agree of course! I have the combo I do because of the 5 hole wheels. I did not want to sport seats but had to have the wheels.

Does HRE have stock fitments for the QV yet?
When we commission a set of HRE's they are always custom order and offsets. Build time is about 6-8 weeks.

There isn't a "Stock" size for the QV from HRE, but we do start with the OEM fitment as a baseline and modify accordingly based on the wheel purchasers desires, as-in keep it OEM, go wider, fit different tires, etc.

Yes, on the forged construction. 100% USA designed and manufactured. And, yes on strong, light, and not cheap:wink2:

This 4C is outfitted with a set of Bridgestone RE-71R's btw.

Yowza! Can you provide more information about the HRE wheels? HRE seems to be rather coy about the weights of their wheels except for the purpose made R101 series (more-or-less 16.7 pounds for a 19x9.5 for a BMW M3), is about 3.5 pounds lighter than the 19x10 Tecnico wheels.

They spec 6061-T6 alloy, which certainly is not the strongest aluminum alloy, although it may be the strongest forge-able alloy. Do you have strength information relative to the stock Giulia wheels?

The prices shown on the HRE website approach the price of carbon-fiber wheels. Are you also looking at selling CF wheels to fit AR products? I am interested in CF wheels (such as ESE or Carbon Research), but not in being some manufacturer's beta tester.
