I just picked up some new wheels. I cant wait to install these on my Abarth :) I will most likely order some g-Force Sport COMP-2 205/45 R16 For these 16x8 rims this week. Anyone suggest a different wheel in this size? From what I gather from many posts; these are the way to go when you want an aggressive daily set and some track potential.

Anyways here are the pics!171611716217163

205 on an 8 inch wheel is going to have a mild stretch to it. I would try to run the BFG Rivals in a 215/45. On my Cobalt SS I run 17x8 wheels with 235/40 Toyo R888.

Yeah. Go bigger.

I go 205 on the stock 16" wheels.

Can't wait to see those wheels on your car, they look great!

Here's a shot of my 215-40 Yokahama S-drives:

I have the 215.45.17 comp 2's on a 17x7.5 rim and they look great. You are going to like them. What is the offset of your new wheel?

I would go even a little wider if you can. I should be mounting my new tires to my new wheels this week and will post some pics. I have 16x8 wheels and I went super wide with a 225/45...should be a grippy little bugger.
