I couldn't turn down the price, Tirerack was closing them out. 17" by 7", perfect bolt pattern and hub, two pounds lighter than stock Abarth rims.

Final pic is of the $4 keychain tab from Amazon I repurposed for a hatch pull, all it took was a couple taps with a tapered punch to widen the grommet out enough for the stock allen bolt, and using a slightly larger washer. I like it a lot since I am in the Air Force...

The new wheels look sweet but I like the keychain/trunk pull better since I always thought that would be a really cool item to have (but no clue where to get one). :cool:

Yep, actually was planning on a set of the 6.5" width Monzas with some 205/50-15s on them, but the price on the Torinos was down to $129 each on Tirerack so I said what the heck...

Thanks, I just ordered a lot of items so for now I tossed it into my wishlist for the next time I place an order with Amazon, much appreciated!

Just a heads up, using my scale the stock 17" Abarth wheels weighed in at 19.4#s. The Torinos came in at 17.4#s. So exactly 2 pounds per corner weight reduction. Aint much, but anything helps.

They look outstanding, really set the car apart from others and draw a lot of attention.

They were stone cold bitch to put on. Took two hours or so, a couple rehangs, and much tweaking to get them to fit to my satisfaction. The instructions and hardware are specific to the EU 500, and our wheelwells apparently are different.

Worth it afterwards, but I likely would have done the RallyArmor ones if I had known how much of a PITA these were going to be initially.
