New light for the wheels

I finally decided to go with 17x9, but find a different wheel I believe will look better with our 124

Welcome the

Rota Titan 17X9 +42 close to 18lbs (17.7lbs for the advanti)

Similar offsets, I like the colour for it, Matt black on the advantis just makes the wheels look smaller.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Here is the link to the wheels, will have pictures soon!

Now I have a quick question, it doesn't say it comes with valve stems and TPMS

Any ideas?? Can I use the 949racing valve stems for the 6UL?

What TPMS do I need.

Good question

And another would be - will they fit inside the guards ....ET 42 and 9 inch wide means that the wheel will protrude another 28.4 mm more than factory. I was surprised (happily) how much my 7" wheel filled the guard with an ET of +37

Well I know im sticking with 245s now, since Brain at GWR said a lot of ND owners with fender roll are having issues with 255s

Buuut I checked the Tropeo R and Cup2 width, it does not seems like it is so much wider than the 245s.

Maybe I'll give it a shot later.


The wheels are getting here tomorrow, but the tires haven't got here yet because of a snowstorm. I am still debating if I should put on the summer tires right now since we are almost getting into april

Also wondering what TPMS we are using.

@klikai the wheels really look good. The price is right and the free shipping is amazing. If you have Brembos, do let us know any clearance issues. Are these for track days only? If not, swap out the TPMSs from your original wheels.

Really nice wheels at great price! I like a lot more than Abarth factory wheels, honestly only thing I dislike about Abarth. I’d love Abarth with ND bbs/brembo set up.
