Alfa Romeo 166, prior to facelift The car was initially available with a 2. In September 2008, the platform was sold to the Chinese state run manufacturer. In addition, see Terms and conditions of access I have read and agree. This was as the 2. No warranties or guarantees are expressed or implied as to the accuracy of the information provided on this site. Suspension was by double wishbones at the front and a multi link setup at the rear.
Wheel Dimensions There are four important measurements that are used to categorize and identify a wheel for fitment purposes. As a result, the wheels maintain optimal grip, even when steered strongly, and the effort on the steering wheel is more predictable and graduated. Roadkill Customs has become the de facto resource for low budget, back yard builders and do-it-yourself hot rodders. Wheel Offset Wheel offset is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true center line of the rim. This innovative Alfa Romeo-patented system allows independent control of comfort and handling and thus reduces the need for compromise between both attributes. Use of this site constitutes your agreement to these terms.
This patented innovation involves replacement of the conventional rigid strut with a jointed strut made up of three different elements interconnected by joints. It allows the wheel plenty of flexibility to keep power firmly on the ground and thus promote front axle grip. It ensures great lateral grip, secure high speed turn-in, and a highly effective and precise steering response. Check your vehicle owner manual for specifications. This blog is about the specification of alloy wheel fitment for Alfa Romeo cars. In order to keep the design fresh, Alfa Romeo made a series of modifications to the based underpinnings, radically changing the suspension set up and also taking a clean paper approach to the interior.

Car manufacturers have not made it easy for the average person to work out what alloy wheels they can fit and what nuts or bolts are needed, they all have something slightly different. The new front end resembled the also recently revised 156.

As far as ease of driving and responsiveness are concerned, the multilink system improves performance to ensure optimum control of steering on corners and while braking, and also great stability during overtaking and lane-change manoeuvres.
When the car is well established in the bend the rear wheel counter-steer is cancelled out by the effect of the increased centrifugal force, while the same side force acts on the rear tyres to induce a mini-steer in phase with the steered front wheels. If this is the case, it is recommended that you use a hub ring. The Alfa 166 owes a great part of its excellent on-road behaviour to its suspension geometry. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. This comfort is further accentuated by a multilink rear suspension system. In June 2007, production of the 166 effectively ended, with no direct successor. At that time, Alfa Romeo sales were flagging, and the project was shelved in order to concentrate on the development and launch of the 156.
Play with specs, try different settings and combinations, compare results. The specific position of the upper wishbone with its axis of rotation angled forward also allows the transverse steering axle angle known as the kingpin angle to be controlled under even the most critical driving conditions.

The particularly fast and reactive multilink system mirrors front suspension movements to ensure great manoeuvring stability at speed and great ease of driving in the best Alfa tradition. This will cause the tire to stick out away from the vehicle. The coaxial spring-damper unit is connected to the body via a flexible mount and to the lower wishbone via a fork. For additional information, see the Global Shipping Programme This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees.
This acts as a support for the upper spring-damper unit attachment. Bolt patterns can be 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 10 lug holes. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. This centers the wheel perfectly on the hub ensuring that there is no run out when the wheel is installed on to the vehicle. This extraordinarily easy-to-handle big saloon ensures all the driving satisfaction typical of Alfa Romeo cars.
The spring, anti-roll bar, damper and buffer stop are also connected directly to the pillar in order to establish a direct relationship with wheel movement. Sales of the 166 never grew as Alfa had hoped, following the facelift in September 2003, and the additional lack of a diesel engine in the United Kingdom, Australian, and Irish markets limited its reach into company car sectors. This configuration brings the following major benefits to the driver: - the best possible grip under all conditions; - the best possible cornering stability under all load conditions; - a significant improvement in traction, even in difficult situations; - steering precision and sensitivity, even on narrow, winding roads; - predictable graduated effort on the wheel, which increases uniformly to the grip limit; - anti-dive geometry to contain front end dip during braking; - lack of steering wheel reaction, even when one of the two driven wheels loses grip during acceleration; - the wheel returns naturally to the straight ahead position when emerging from a bend and displays a great capacity for realignment. All the forces acting on the suspension pass through this point. The vehicle was designed before the 156, having been almost signed off for production at the end of 1994.
Front The double wishbone front suspension configuration adapts very well to steering characteristics. The combination is sophisticated: a double wishbone system at the front, with a multilink system at the rear. In the diesel sector, the L5 2. Already used on the 156, but re-designed specially for the new model, the double wishbone solution combines the great control typical of front-wheel drive with a truly sporty performance and exceptional precision. The basic structure includes: a beam and lower wishbone in aluminium alloy, a cast iron pillar and a stainless steel upper wishbone. Check your vehicle owner manual for proper specifications. In total, less than 100,000 units were made.
