    Thanks to you both.

    I've now been told that the distribution for OZ wheels is changing, so I'll have a bit of a wait for the wheels. That's not a problem with winter on its way.

    Hi Old Boy

    Thanks for being so polite.

    By now I should have learnt to RTFM. :-[

    LOL

    No worries, not everyone can be bothered reading all the technical stuff.  That's what a forum is for, to chat about this stuff.

    Not sure I'd run wheels much different from these ETs though incase of wheel arch and suspension/caliper clearance issues.

    I'm going to stick to standard spec for the wheels and to go for Conti Sport Contact 3s instead of the Toyos.

    There again, I got a couple of months to change my mind about all this, I've yet to try the kit.

    Im down to ET 26 on the rear of my gp and i occasionally catch the arch lip if i catch a big dip in the road so i wouldnt fancy getting an ET any lower than this. On the front there doesnt seem to be too much room to push them out and if i was going to run a lower et on the front i would go past ET36 but then my GP has a lower offset than the abarth does because it doesnt have the wider track as standard.
