Italian WHEELS...'Campy', Cromodora, Melber, Momo, etc.

Seems like a fitting topic. I'm an aesthetics and styling kook, and LOVED the myriad of wheel choices coming out of the big players, Campagnolo and Cromodora, largely due to Al Cosentino & Faza types back in the day. But there were many 'boutique' type companies turning out some beauties...

I'm starting with a VERY elegant design from Melber, period maker in Italy for Italian and some British cars as well.

Please post up your favorites.

...yes, still chasing center caps, been years :/

Nice, love those too. Here is the coveted 10" x 15" rear Campagnolo wheel as first seen on the beefed up GTS Pantera if I remember correctly? I also believe that center cap is correct for that particular wheel when on GTS?

Here is another example. Very aggressive design that suits the Italian-American design perfectly.

No doubt, great looker that car, those wheels! Nice tire selection! I had this set done in gold for my former Mangusta show car.

ps...the skinny one in the bag is the spare, just fit under the closed 'wings'

Tough to beat gold wheels on a 70s / 80s car. Gold OZs on a red Countach is especially killer.

The first Miura Jota rims were based on the Bizzarrini rim which was the widest rim at that time. Bizzarrini had a close relationship with Campagnolo and even had disc brakes and oil pans made for his cars by Campagnolo.

These are referred to as Campagnolo 'iron crosses' uber rare and true magnesium lightweights. They were featured as 'optional' in some Alfa literature near final production of the 'round/boat tail spider's. I held onto the 7 I have?? Ive taken the best 4 and applied first coat of gold anyway, thinking they will pop against silver spider.

when you factor in the Vallelunga, Mangusta, Pantera variants, even Longchamps, Detomaso and Campagnolo teamed up on some all time great designs...

Vallelunga's for reference. First shot are actual 'original' wheels and this particular Vallelunga is sporting some mystery VERY cool rims? Anyone recognize them? Staggered sizes, big deep dishes in the rear.

It is likely an Alpine 310.
