I did like these steel wheels on the old 100hp that attended viva Zeelanda.
Look like Abarth winter set.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Still wish you could take a descent three quarter shot from the rear some time to see how flush the wheels are with the fenders..

Even being a 7.0Jx16" wheel with a 31 offset and 215/40R16" Tires, it's disappointing.

I think a 7.5J wheel with the correct offset would be perfect.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Nice thread! However, I can't believe my eyes. What happened with your dislike of the TwinAir? Your alter ego Iceman swore on the Dutch 500 forum that he wouldn't drive anything with less than 4 cylinders.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Regarding the silver stripe on your steel wheels:



Why such a narrow stripe? Maybe you should go for this look:



Black/silver bi-colour steel wheels would fit your car well, I think.

Btw, i choose the small stripe only for a accent line on the edge of the rim to break down the line between black wiel and tire.
Don't like the example you showed.
