Very nice! We really must organise a meeting of Irish Cinq owners this summer. The GT wheels look well - did you have fun with spacers and nuts getting them to fit (I did!). Have you any plans for the engine or is it staying standard (well you do have two years NCT...)

Keep it shiny-side up!

wheels look crap.. get rid asap! rest of the car looks a goodun though. nice condition from the piccies :)

whatever you think yourself! :rolleyes: i like em and they suit the car imo,
not really any other wheels that i would have on it. what have you on yours bushboy?

turbocinqy, spacers worked fine, bit of "persuasion" with a ball pein hammer and a vice grips stopped all the rubbing (y)
boot was a diy attempt as was the spraying of the bumpers and boot, would like the abarth sideskirts and front extension, but i'm happy for now

all i want now is an anti roll bar! :chin:

i love gt wheels on a cinq, look awesome (y)

Only sexually confused folks like them, specially those g(r)ay ones, lol

Though I do hope that everyone has fitted 15mm spacers to make them the correct off-set now :bang:

I like the rear bumper as well, suits the car. (y)

Is it just me or are the tyres the wrong profile for the Cinq application?

Should be same as the 14" Abarth wheels as same width, so ideally 175/50 14 tho expensive, so 185/50 cheaper and easier to get fit nicely and gice a little more tyre contact.

wasn't expecting such a mixed reaction to the wheels!
spacers on and no rubbing anywhere, the tires are 185/55, thats what came on them and im not going to take off practically new tires!
if you like it, cool, if you dont thats fine, everyone is entitled to there opinion (mine is right though:p )
