I ordered my Abarth with the optional 17" wheel package and I think they're gorgeous. However I saw on the RRM website a set of 16x8 black mesh wheels that just look incredible. http://roadracemotorsports.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=118_130&products_id=1324

With living and working in the city, I am thinking going down a wheel size then being able to put on a tire with a taller sidewall with a wider footprint (i.e. a 225,235/45,50,55) for durability, ride and tracking. (the RE-11 comes in some weird sizes:friendly_wink:)

Plus I just think that might look really cool.

I'd really appreciate input from everyone else regardless of whether it's support, criticism, or just plain telling me i'm a buffoon. :)




Cheers.

I think its a wonderful idea. That style looks just right on these cars, and the price is decent for a set of lightweight and attractive wheels. I say go for it. If you can't get the RE11s in a size you want, check out the Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec. I'm on my third set and would definitely come back for a fourth.
