I'm swapping out the factory Abarth wheels for Advanti Racing Storm S1 17x9s
Look at the the width difference! Its only two inches but it looks like a foot!
And they are so incredibly light compared to the stock rims. Its like free horsepower!
84407


These are going to seriously fill the wheel wells. I'm not showing the wheel faces because I am having the wheels refinished.
If you want to see stock Advanti Storm S1wheels, visit Goodwin Racing, a forum vendor, they carry them in multiple finishes.
Once I have everything in I'll post pics of the new wheels on the car.

Well aren’t you the one to fill the forum with a little suspense! Now we’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for the reveal. 😉

Just so you know 17x9 rubs on full lock. I found this out the hard way by buying wheels because I needed tires. I believe I also warned about this in a post after the install. Hopefully you have better luck. Nice to see someone doing something to the spider other than selling it.

If only they worked on Abarths...stupid TPMS
For about $200 bucks you can get 4 TPMS sensors and a Maxi TPMS pad and program another set of wheels. Laptop not included.

Try paying dealer prices to have TPMS sensors installed. I bought the tool for less than $60 and four sensors for $120 and replaced all four on my Honda Element. The dealer wanted $500 to do it. Once I understood how the system works I made the investment in the tool to do it. I read all four sensors in my Abarth and recorded the information in case the batteries died. The serial numbers are written on the OEM sensors and can be entered into the Maxi TPMS program if the batteries die. That way all I have to to is buy new programmable sensors, program them and have them installed next time I change tires. Or sooner If I so desire.

BTW, the Abarth system looks for four discrete serial numbered sensors. It doesn't care where they are on the car. With this system you can have a duplicate set of wheels/tires and change tires for the winter without the TPMS system ever seeing a difference.

Didn’t that other guy this fix for $12?

They are monsters! Let us know how you get on with rubbing (hopefully a lack thereof 👍🏼)

Those black spline lugs look pretty nice. (I might be slightly biased. lol)

Bandit, have a question. It looks like Brembos in the background. Do the Advanti Racing Storm's work with them unmodified? If I'm not mistaken, doesn't Goodwin say they "are not" a fit with the Brembos? Thanks.

On my ABARTH I purchased these 315MHz TPMS SENSORS
85425

I installed them on the new wheels then had the tires mounted.
Bolted the wheels on, started the car, and the car recognized them with no problem or programing.
$79.95 for a set of four.
