Alfa Romeo Giulietta wheels
Borrani have always had a close association with Alfa Romeo and offer a selection of wire wheels for the Giulietta. Although the Giulietta did not come as standard with wire wheels Borrani offer a transform kit to give you the option of fitting either the 4.5"x15", RW3344 or 5.0"x15", RW3942 wire wheels.
Borrani developed its Turbo Sport wheels for fitting to the Giulietta, these wheels soon became called Bimetal wheels, as they have a pressed steel centre piece and light alloy rim. The Bimetal Giulietta wheels have recently been re-manufactured by Borrani with an option of 2 styles for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The Turbo Sport wheels use the standard bolt on system of mounting a wheel. Whereas the Turbo Sprint uses a Transform Kit so you can fit the centre lock wheels with a knock on spinner.
- Note the transform kit used for wire wheels is different to the centre lock kit for Bimetal Turbo Sprint wheels.
