The Tire Rack shows the rim width range for a 145/65-15 to be 4 to 5 inches.
The ideal width is 4.5 inches.....exactly what you have.

I owned an 1983 Intermeccanica 356 for many years.

Intermeccanica switched over to tube frame in 1984.

With the redrilled rotors you have you may be better off trying to source a set of rotors ...

How wide are your rims?
The rim width range for a 205/60 is 5.5" to 7.5", with 6" being optimal.

Why are these better than the stock wheels? It's not like you'll be able to really see the holes when the wheel is mounted, they're steel (heavy) , and they're only 5" wide, which is the same as ...

The chances are very slight, as they're made for the Porsche replica crowd, who use (mostly) a wide 5 or Porsche 5 bolt wheel pattern.

I surprised a few other drivers with my old 1970 single cab.
