    Photoshop skills? White Abarth with hyper black wheels.

    Can anyone photoshop the hyper black wheels onto the white with red stripe Abarth? The picture on the main page is almost perfect because you can mirror the wheels over. I am wondering what that will look like.

    Here's a quick and dirty rendering, but, lack of skill aside, it may give you some idea what it would look like. Personally I think it looks quite sharp.

    thanks! I think that combination will work. 90% sure I will go with that color combo now. The white looks awesome but I don't really feel like cleaning the brake dust off every day.

    Some actual shots...

    Anthracite wheels help tremendously to hide the brake dust.

    I'd agree with that! The white wheels are (as you'd expect!) a pain the rear!

    They look good, but are dirty by the time you've got to the end of the road.

    Not really the exact same question but along somewhat similar lines, are the 16" wheels the ones pictured below?


    If the car in the picture is sporting 16's it's just about exactly how I'd want mine to look. If they're not the same wheels--how do they differ? Color/size?

    Has anybody spotted any shots of the US abarth in black with the 16's? I'm sure the paint on ours is pretty different than above.

    I don't think anyone has seen a US-spec Abarth with the 16" wheels yet. It seems like Fiat is only promoting the optional 17s so that everyone expects them when the cars arrive in April/May. When they find out the 16s are standard, they will have already had their mind made up on the 17s and spend the extra $$$.

    The picture you posted seems like these wheels:

    But the US press release showed these slightly different wheels:

    Yes, those are the 16" wheels. Although that picture looks Photoshopped and they look bigger then 16".
