Grrr... Need Some 14s

With the 1242 now in the 899 and hopefully running around tomorrow/sat I better start looking at brake upgrades! I think I should go for 14s and the punto GT brakes, cos I got 13s on there now and don't know where to find UT brakes rare as rocking horse s**t i believe.

anyone recommend any decent 14s to go with i'm thinking maybe sei abarth 14s rather than aftermarket, either that or maybe some alfa wheels or somethin, for that euro look

any ideas greatly appreciated, just looking for opinions really, check my sig for pics of the cinq (doesn't have the blue stripes any more!) and is getting an abarth rear apron and Ghostwkds old custom smoothed front bumper on it.

thanks

Lenny

Re: Grrr... Need Some 14s

Yea i'm not too sure thats why i thought i'd ask about on here.

I got the rear apron off a guy on ebay its actually a standard bumper with the abarth bumper spoiler smoothed in, looks good to me thou and wasn't gonna complain for 35!

i like the look of ronal turbos and old uno turbo wheels, but the old uno turbo rims are 13s i think

Re: Grrr... Need Some 14s

hhmm i have a set of ronal turbos in my back garden, theyre 4x100 fitment. might get some wobblys and see what theyre like on the cinq.. good luck getting a set though, i know a few people who are selling them for £350/400+. And Ronal Turbos are 15x7 so might be too big to get on a cinq.
and you bastard getting that bumper, ive wanted a smoothed one for ages! and that cheap too

Re: Grrr... Need Some 14s

I would deffo recommend the GT brakes over the UT setup i've had just the GT's on one cinq and GT fronts and UT rears on another as well as an UT with UT brakes...

Absolutely amazing in the dry could pretty much out brake must things I came up against... but just watch out in the wet

In summary GT for front and if you want a working handbrake UT rears
