i sold a set last year or the year before!! Lol I like the deep dish look!! But thanks!
SURE, show me all these nice rims, then tell me I can’t have them!!! Lol!!
My choice was to go with 3 pièces wheels that allow you to change the outer or inner rim in various sizes. That's the theory. The problem is you won't find many of them for Fiat and not in North America.
I bought a set of Gotti 40US3 from France. Then bought a pair of outer rims wider than the one I got. So I could build a 13x8 rear and 13x6 front or all 13x8. In the pic, you see what I got. The ones with the tires are 13x8, the tireless 13x6.
I'm still in the process of finishing them. Some polishing and repainting the "coloured" part in gold, which was the original color. These are 4x98mm made for the ... R5 Turbo. And the good thing is Gotti is still making rims and there are plenty used... in Europe. I stick with 13 inches rim for a period correct look. But I'm probably going to put slicks on them and ran 15" wheels on the street since the available tires is better.
here a pic of just the center, so you could figure out the principle of 3 pièces wheels.
And, in between, I'm also using some 13x6 ATS (like Jim) but in silver. I was more Lucky than him since I was offered them by a fellow racer who used them only at the track. So I was the first one to put them on the street.
Oh and I forgot. My spare set is Enkei Apache 2 pièces in 13x5.5. And yes, I have ALL the center caps, but as a racer I was used to leave them at home for safety reason (you don't want to be hit in the eye by a center cap at a race track)
Here's a link to a Craigslist add in the Milwaukee WI area:
Someone is selling a set of 4 "Western" Turbine-Style wheels with a 4X98 bolt pattern for $300. From the ad, it sounds like you'd also need centering rings, and I'm not sure if the backspace is agreeable, but they'd look pretty slick, to me.
There you go Chris. Those turbines are some of the dishiest wheels for the X. Gumby just sold his X last month, he had Turbines on it. Lets see if this picture shows up:
Hmm, looks like you will have to click the link. Anyway, decent wheels and like Russe11 said, you will need studs, shouldered nuts and centering rings.
