Default where can i buy Mille Miglia wheels?

i cant seem to find any sites selling them. im mainly lookin at the ev-r set. overall tho i dont see sites selling them. (ebay not included of course)

one other question... can you fit 19" wheels with low pro tires without raising the car or should i just play it safe and stick with 18"

Goggle them Nikky, I got alot of hits. There is a common misunderstanding about tire/wheels choices. Basically,.... a 15"x70, a 16"x60, a 17 or 18"x50, 20"x30 or 40 All have about the same height when you decrease the tire profile as you increase the wheel size. The larger the wheel, the smaller profile tire you chose. 20"'* fit fine under a Bonne with the proper profile, but alot of them to me look a bit SUV clunkish.

tire rack has exclusive distribution rights for miglia wheels within the united states, so it will be tough finding another dealer in the states with a selection like theirs(and afaik they are discontinued). i just went through this trying to find another discontinued model of miglia wheel that i have

there are a few places in canada that stock selections of miglia wheels as big as the tire rack'*, but most of them won't ship into the u.*. due to tire rack'* exclusivity rights here. if you can find one that will, bear in mind that their pricing will probably be 20-50 dollars more per wheel than tire rack'* pricing (tire rack has the best miglia pricing in the world). plus you'll have to pay customs and international shipping to get them here, unless you have a friend in canada to do the purchase/shipping for you.

check out TireTrends : Save on tires, wheels, suspension & brakes!, talk to bob, he'll help you out.

if you do find some for sale make sure it'* the right offset too

QED
