Ran across this on ebay.
The price is insane for these wheels, but it looks great. I think that the car has standard ride height, but still looks nice.

That's crazy money. Tire Rack has a beautiful set of 17" BBS wheels for half that. BTW, the way the 500 stripe decal starts and stops at all the body seams and around the mirror drives me nuts.

I love them and is exactly the look I would want. I would wait till the Abarth is officially out and on the road here in the US as they will probably be available for much cheaper at that point.
I myself will be satisfied with my 500C and 17 spoke15" premium wheel option. I'll keep my 2K and spend it next summer on trading in for a 500C Abarth once that gets announced.

Well, the S.Drives alone shipped; taxed; mounted/balanced; and TPMSs would run close to $700 so $1,300 for the Abarth rims... I've certainly seen much spendier rims for this car advertised...

Thanks to everyone who commented on these wheels.

I too wish we could sell them less expensively; however as OEM wheels they were expensive to buy and import. I know the wheels will not be for everyone, but some people will want the fit and look of an OEM option over the many aftermarket wheels out there.

I have, however, dropped the price of all of our 500 wheels, both mounted sets and unmounted wheels, by $100 a set! Let me know if you have any Qs.

Hello RM500,

I just want to say thank you for importing these wheels. I purchased a set from you in August and really appreciate the service your provided and the wheels look great on our 500c. Nothing like keeping the OEM look. If anyone has concerns with the purchase or questions about the wheels let me know. RM500 is a quality ebay seller and you will not be disappointed. Thank you again RM500.
