    Nineteen-inch Alpina wheels

    Okay: So over on Bring A Trailer, with the Silver Z8 Of The Week auction going on, I mentioned a 19" version of the Alpina Z8 wheels. Here is what I saw in Buchloe (if I can figure out how to insert the image): (And I never said this guy could park!)

    See, I think that is a huge esthetic improvement.

    Not becasue the wheel design has changed but because the wheel tire combo togther is is better balanced. I not only dislike the ride characteristics of rubber band profile tires (on the street) but I don't like the look.

    This is a great solution if the width and backspacing is good for our cars.

    Thank you for posting this.

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car
