I never see these on an actual car! The only pics I can find are of a bare wheel to show it fitting over the brakes of an Abarth. So, I thought I'd throw up a single pic of the actual wheels on my Abarth. Running Blizzaks 185/55-15. Not quite stretched, but the wheel rim is NOT protected by the tire sidewall. I wanted skinny snows, but with a 7 inch wide wheel with some poke, you could probably put a lot more tire on these. If they weren't so heavy!

These are a copy of an old vintage 70's magnesium Cromodora CD 66 wheel, used on a lot of Italian cars like Ferraris and Fiats.

Thanks everybody! I don't have all the cool stuff, but I do have the RoadRace Motorsport ECU, a GFB Diverter Valve, Eurocompulsion Boost Leak fix, the RRM Cold Air intake, a RRM Big Red Bar, and EBC RED pads. The snow wheels and tires were the big thing for the upcoming winter. Here's a few more pics.

These are cool wheels. I remember them from the past. Still sexy after all these years. Nice choice.

That looks really slick and a great reference to old school FIATs.

These are super cool. I'm be interested in knowing how the increased sidewall size improved ride quality. My car has the optional factory 17s right now and it's a little... bumpy.

I thought throughout the winter that the car rode much better than with my stock 16" wheels with the stock Continentals. It definitely handled better with the wider track and the wider wheels. I am almost tempted to convert these to some really sticky summer tires instead, and put Blizzaks on my stock 16's.

Thats good to know. I was thinking of going to the 17's. I think I will stick with the 16's. I don't have any kidney stones I need to rattle loose.

I LOVE THOSE WHEELS!

I'm not sure if they just came out but if I would've known about those before I bought my O.Z. 45th anniversary I would've probably ended up with them, LOVE EM!

Like them too. I'm thinking of getting them for my Sport Coupe.

Here they are on this older Spider
