    Sorry, but the avatar is too small to see the wheels. Are they alloy or steel?

    I know, sorry. See if I can upload photos.

    PS. Uploading not working for me...

    PPS. The avatar wheel is probably steel and has these multiple holes along the perimeter (?) without wheel caps.
    The other optional wheel is probably alloy and has these multiple rectangular shaped clusters...

    Well, looks like I did get to upload this one photo !
    The car is wearing these wheels as of now. The owner gave me the option to acquire as is or change to reproduction alloy wheels (or get both sets with slight additional price increase).

    Okay, this photo shows the other wheels. Referred to as "original" because the current owner bought this car years back with these wheels.

    Which set of wheels would be more prudent choice ? Any feedbacks appreciated.

    jimmy,
    it's kind of hard to tell from the picture, but the second picture looks like alloy cromodora wheels. the alloys really suit the car, and would be my choice, but it's really just a matter of personal preference. the fulvia looks very good on the steelies as well.
    maybe others will know, does using the alloy wheel widen the choice of available tires? that would factor in my decision as well.

    The first photo shows correct S1 steel wheels. The second shows Cromodora alloys, but the question is, which ones? Are they 6J x 13 or 6J x 14? Either way they’re likely too wide to comfortably fit tires of the correct overall diameter without rubbing the wheel arches. If they’re 13" diameter, that will also limit tire availability.

    Appreciate your feedbacks. With my limited understandings, I take it that the original steel wheels are the best suited (?). Seems like that is the conclusion.

    I am waiting for their payment received confirmation and then would decide if I ought to fly in to meet the owner and thank him in person and possibly enjoy some driving also. In reference to that, anyone familiar with foreigner driving requirements and limitations there? I know for sure international driver license, own driver license and insurance are necessary. Any further limitations ? Thanx in advance.

    I can only speak to rental cars, but have rented many over the years in Europe. Typically, all you need is your regular drivers license. It appears that the International Drivers License has gone the way of the Dodo except in a very few obscure countries. Insurance is typically in the hands of the car owner, so if you test it while it is still the former owner's, you are fine. I imagine getting your own insurance on the spot would be a doddle, but can’t say. My bottom line is: what a wonderful excuse for a chance to drive a Fulvia in its native habitat!

    Jimmy,

    You can't go wrong with the original steel.

    Thanx Prof. I would do my homework if I decide to fly in. It has been my to do list for sure.
