1764I think they will look awesome. I order the the 17" OZ Leggenda's in matte black for my Abarth. Mounted Yokohama S-drive 205/40/17. Just waiting for my Abarth around early to mid may (it is on a train somewhere in the USA). Nero black, red stripes and caps.

Not cheap. Approximately 1200.00 US plus shipping. With tires, TPMS and mounting and balancing well over 2K.

Do you need new TPMS ?

You need the TPMS sensors mounted into your new rims of you want the systme to work, but its no big deal if youre using it for winter tires - you just have to live with the orange light on the dash for a few months a year! I personally HATE TPMS, its no substitute for good ownership and the valves corrode and bust out too often. Its VERY expensive to fix too, although will be warranty covered initially. Nanny state messing our lives up again!

The advantage with Tire Rack is they will install the TPMS as part of mounting and balancing your wheel/tire combos before shipping them, so basically all you have to do is mount them (and perhaps remove that little alighment pin from the original hubs). I also don't believe there is any additional charge for installing the TPMS or mounting and balancing the whee/tire combo other than new valve stems.

I really don't like the TPMS sensors either but I hate the little light on the dash even more. I put new TPMS sensors in as I do not have the Abarth yet. And even if I did I would still buy new sensors. I plan on keeping the OEM 17" wheels.

I think they'll look great on your Abarth. I plan on rocking the 17s but I'm so so tempted to get another set of shoes already.

These are the wheels I'm thinking of getting for dedicated track wheels. I think they look great.

Nice looking wheels.

Love those white ones. Don't love the OZ price! I'm thinking of white Sparcos, of course, I don't have an Abarth either.

I think they'll look brilliant. I've ordered a black Abarth with red stripes and mirror caps and I have these in my living room waiting...

Nice choice in color. It's going to look sexy on your Abarth.

They do look nice. What do they weigh? Are they forged wheels?
I'm going with the Magneti Marelli wheels in Black.

OZs are great. I've had them on several of my cars. I'm considering a pair of those for my Bianco/Red Abarth. It will be interesting to see how close the Red matches. I'm kind of a stickler for that.

I ordered the Forged White wheels, but will probably end up with a couple of other 'sets of shoes' for my different moods. :lol:

See the little weight tag? That's how much that one weighed. It was the heaviest one. The others were all 14.385. I weighed them with the tires on a bathroom scale and they're about 35 lbs total.
They are not forged. The OZ website says: "Production process: Low Pressure Casting Process + Heat Treatment + HLT"

I will be posting pics for sure. I plan to put them on as soon as I get some pictures of the car stock. Right now it looks like my Abarth will be arriving at the beginning of June. I can't wait!

Do any of you happen to know if they make the 17" optional wheels from the factory available to purchase after an Abarth is delivered? Also, would any of you know if they sell single wheels? Thanks.

This is the wheels (in white) widely used on the Assetto Corse Race cars in Europe. I like them a lot, but for some reason they come in 17 x 7 , 4 x 100, not 4 x 98 as it should. So you have to use the floating bolts to mount the wheels. I wonder in Europe if they have the actual 4x98 wheels....
I am looking to buy a set of black NEEZ Eurocross wheels for my car. They are forged and true 4 x 98 and 7.5" wide!!

I purchased the exact same wheels for my Abarth but they ended up on my white Prima. The OZ wheels used on the Assetto Corse 500 are 4 x 100 and require wobble bolts and the centering ring. I highly recommend only using the OZ wobble bolts and centering ring. The shop that mounted the tires also had wobble bolts in stoch but from visual inspection the OZ bolts looked far superior to the ones the shop had.

I have been running 4 x 100 on and off for years on my Fiat Barchetta and 128 and have never had an issue. I have also had no issues with the OZ wheels on my Prima. My only problem is that in Montreal the roads are terrible.....soooooooooooooooo many pot holes I am worried about scrapping a mag.

Anyone know the differences between Abarth fit wheels and regular 500?

I have the 17" O.Z. Leggenda on my Abarth purchased through the tirerack.com. They are mounted on BFG g-Force KDW 2 205/40 ZR 17.
These are the wheels on the Trofeo race cars in Europe and, from what I understand, the exact same ones meaning they are also 4X100 and require wobble bolts due to 4X98 bolt pattern on the 500.
