I posted this on your Facebook Post, and I will re-post it here:

Take off that large center cap and show us the inside...i'm gonna guess they are those wheels with many bolt options for any fitment (which are usually found on cheaper wheels). Just because they are discontinued or rare, does not make them increase in value. They could be some generic wheel not worth much to be honest. With no branding, it will be hard to sell. Especially since just last week you said you found them in the back of a car stereo shop for $2,000...but you say you want $2,500 used 🧐 Used wheel prices go down, not up. I'm selling my OZ Ultraleggera wheels soon which is a very known brand and I will be asking less than retail considering they have been on my car (aka "used")

Here you go, 99% sure these are your wheels. Same spec you listed. They go brand new for $700 to $888 shipped. I’m sorry you over paid and are now trying to offload them. I know just last week you posted in the group that you found them in the back of a car stereo shop for $2,000 and you’re asking $2,500 for them now. Please do not buy random wheels at a car stereo shop as most the time they are cheap low quality wheels (unless properly branded). If you are going to buy them, do some research prior to purchasing. Hopefully this helps others when buying wheels and being put in a similar situation.

These are not necessarily for the 124 Spider, since the sticker states "pcd 100 114.3" (means there are more than 4 lug bolt holes), and as Evolved said, they are generic with an Abarth emblem - probably ordered for an Abarth 500. I would advise not installing these on the 124 Spider, which needs lug-centric hubs with the correct center bore size (and Coned Lug Nut Rim Seats @ 60° angle).

[EDIT - Evolved found the wheels before I had posted my comment. It proves that I assumed correctly]

At least he's not saying "super rare unicorn wheels" here, LOL.
Can't get any more rare than that pair of wheels that have been hiding away in the corner of a random car stereo shop 😂

What a POS.

The audacity to advertise those on here of all places, as "Discontinued Fiat 124 Spider wheels" is real. The fact that they are universal 4x100 and coincidentally "fit" the wheel gap of the spider does not mean that they were designed for our car, let alone look good.

Go try to rip off the same tint shop that shafted you for those fugly "discontinued" ricer magazine specials that belong on a beat up Altima.

It’s cool man I know your trying to warn us of these shit wheels and shittier seller, but I don’t think anyone here would put those ugly ass things on their car. I purpose we kill this thread and move onto something else. Perhaps the progress of your sick 300 kitted car. Or even the Honda swapped one.

lol Just wanted to give a fair warning since people are apparently reaching out so just want them to know the true value of the wheels.

And yes I spoke to the shop last night and the wide body with all the carbon bits and full wrap is still expected to be done next week. I actually just put up a new video today with an update about both the wide body and the k swap. Video Here

I see this seller also has his 124 for sale on his Facebook page. Says there isn't another car like it in Southern California and, because of that, it has achieved "unicorn" status. And you can purchase his 124 (and he'll graciously throw in an Abarth bicycle) all for.......wait for it: $45,000......Maybe I'm a bit sentimental but I think the Pilgrims had it exactly right with the use of pillories in the town center.

So fellow forum members, what is your verdict? Do you think you’ve driven him off? I’m thinking this new member may not even own a 124 and joined us, and the FB group only to unload these wheels. You’ve pretty much undone his scheme. No doubt they will next appear on Craigslist, or some dodgy classified web marketplace.
At least he wasn’t flagged by the StopForumSpam ap!
Best regards Pete
