Re: Fitted my Abarth alternative wheels and Abarth Backbox (photos)

Were these wheels a straight swap without the need to do any other mods. Same PCD, ET, etc?

All I've heard in the past is that Abarth wheels won't fit normal GP's and I wasn't sure whether this was just the fact that Abarth dealers have been told not to sell Abarth kit to guys with normal GP's?

They are a fair bit lighter than the standard ones yes, feels alot easier to spin up. The standard ones as you know weigh a fair bit.

Yep they do have quite a bit of weight to them. Will be keeping my eyes peeled for a set of these.

Looks fantastic dude... once lowered will look perfect

Get some day time pics up once it's been lowered.

*Wonders if can sell M-Jet for enough to buy a used T-Jet*
