    Porsche Wheel Project

    As we all know, the wheel choices for the Abarth are really limited and I'm not too keen on a custom Rotiform / CCW set given the cost of the car...as such, coming from a VW background, we always used to use 5x100-->5x130 adapters to mount Porsche wheels on our VWs...Porsche wheels have very high ETs that lend themselves to being "adapted"

    considering the following - I like the look and they're relatively light at 18lbs

    17x7 et 55
    17x8.5 et 52

    still figuring out the offsets but should be easily adapted - if I can score a set on just (4) fronts, that could also be an option. Figure wheels + adapters + tires + TPMS will be around 1,200. Will keep this thread updated!

    two wheels have been procured - 17x7 Boxster Twists II, apparently the lightest 17'' OEM porsche wheel - recently refinished for a good price - excited to get this project started!

    Very cool. Those are lighter than they look! Nice metallurgy and hollow backsides to those thick spokes I suppose.

    I'm having a hard time visualizing these wheels on a 500, but I've found that almost any wheels end up looking cool on these cars.

    alright trying to nail down offsets

    for the front, will go with a 17x7 et 20 fitment - thats a few mm inside of the 17x7.5 et 30 BBS application

    What are people's experiences with the rear? Feels like I could squeeze another 5mm back there (et 15)
