Hello,

I have three wheels like the black one in the attached picture, and one wheel like the white one.
From what I understand, the white wheel is "correct" for my 4th series B20, and the black wheel is of the 5th-6th series type.

So what are my options?
Will the 5th/6th series wheels fit at all, or must I try to locate 3 more 3rd/4th series wheels?

Thank you Smiley

PS!  Please excuse the shabby shoes in the picture Smiley

You are correct in identifying the wheels. If you are going to do the job properly you will need a set of the correct wheels. Be mindful that the rolled rims corrode from the inside!
You can get new wheels from Cavalitto https://www.oldlanciaspares.com/1234-lancia-AURELIAA-ricambio-cerchio-ruota-per-modelli-3-4-serie.php

Thank you for your reply Ade.
The white ( correct ) wheel is very corroded on the inside, with rustholes here and there...
So, I need 4 new wheels.
Might as well get one more 5th-6th series wheels and have a spare track day set Smiley

Will is correct. You can see that from the pictures on Cavalittos website.
If you are desperate for wheels to move your car around or drive it, I have a set of 5 hollow rim 2.5l  B20 wheels with new Michelin tyres and tubes with Newmarket grey rims and correct cream centres in the UK you can borrow. Or alternatively I have a set of 4 Tecnomagnesio magnesium allow wheels here as well with new 15" Michelin XAS tyres fitted you can borrow.
Kind regards

Thats a very kind offer Chris!
The car is many years away from driving, but is soon ready to lower from the jig that has been its legs for decades and onto wheels.
So I might take you up on that offer, thank you!

I might be mistaken but aren't these 3-4th series wheels?

And these are 5-6th series?

Dare I suggest that you find four CitroŽn B11 wheels if you have corroded rolled rim wheels?. The CitroŽn used 165x400mm Michelin X tyres. You can weld the CitroŽn rims to the Aurelia wheel centre provided that the webs of the wheel centres are bent in slightly, because the CitroŽn rim has a deaper section than the Lancia wheels. Definitely not original but the only solution open to me when I had had two corroded rims split away giving me a fine opportunity to inspect the tubes. In fact only one person has as yet discovered the change.
