    better looking!! can't beat the 18" SS wheels :thumb:

    The esseesse wheels are ok but not that good and certainly not worth the money. Wolfrace and Team Dynamic wheels are SO much better and cheaper too. There is life outside of Abarth branded products and something called "value".

    Yeah OZ wheels are cool as are BBS,TSW and Momo. If people want to be like everybody else and pay through the nose for it then fair play. But I would rather be an individual even if that did mean paying more.

    Just as an after thought (and certainly not something I would try personally) but I wonder if anybody has tried fitting 19's?

    Problem with wheels like the superturismo etc is that you look like your are trying to do SS on the Cheap, it's like one of those MR2 based Ferraris, would be fine in isolation, if the real thing didn't exist, but otherwise people just look and think oh dear.  ;D

    Best to look at another style IMO.

    They don't look anything like ss wheels, mine is an ss , and the wheels are awful, far too heavy, and corrode like mad.

    oz wheels are better quality and lighter than ss wheels
