I wouldn't have ever thought to put gold rims on a black car - and I love it. Such a beautiful car!

Thanks, glad you like it, #actually I'm going for the whole black & gold look, taking my lead from the JPS cars of the eighties

I stared at the wheels posted on this thread and the tire/spring threads a few hundred times before settling - thanks to anyone who posted

Wheels are a deeper bronze than every picture posted so far, they only appear gold when in direct sunlight

18" OZ Ultraleggera +38 offset in Crystal Titanium mounted on 205/40r18 Nitto Neo Gen tires. I originally had 18mm spacers mounted along with them but the rears would rub the fender on dips on the highway. Only had them on for a day.

As for the ride on 18s, VERY GOOD!!! It's still perfectly comfortable.

I'm very happy with my wheel and colour choice. :)

My photos are crappy, and I'm lucky I was able to stand to take the picture. Lord the wind was blowing this afternoon. Plus the tires are dusty as heck and seriously need a wipe down with tire shine. The photos were taken just shortly after I left the dealership.

Spec-1 Racing SP-55 18" wheels, with Nitto Invo 235/40R18's mounted on them. McGard floating cone spline locking lugs to hold everything on. :)

That's a big tire! Stock ride height? Any rubbing?

Yup. But I love the look of them, and the width. The downside is going to be washing those wheels... what was I thinking? lol

Stock ride height. But I am now about 9mm higher off the ground due to the overall diameter of the tire being 18mm larger.

I'm not hearing any rubbing, but I'll know for sure later today or tomorrow. The tech was supposed to leave the centre caps off so I could place them myself... the anal retentive part of me wanted them installed so that the bottom of the Abarth shield pointed towards the valve stem. That didn't happen, so rather than take it back to the dealer, I'm just going to pull the wheels and reinstall everything myself. Just waiting for things to warm up a bit more before I go out to the garage. When I pull the front wheels I'll be able to see if there's been any rubbing or not. The other fellow who installed the same wheels (but different tires) told me he only got some very minor rubbing on full wheel lock. I tried a full wheel lock turn in an empty parking lot yesterday but didn't hear anything, so visual inspection will confirm if they do or do not.

17x7.5 rota RB on 225/45s. RBs need 15mm spacers in this size, and longer studs - bolt on spacers won't work as the nut recesses in the rotas aren't big enough. Stock springs.
