Besides the lack of rims/hub caps I really like it (looks odd right now without them), interior REALLY pops in contrast to the exterior.
I'm a fan of the black wheel look, so to me I like it better without the hubcaps (hubcaps for sale!). I plan on removing the wheels and painting the wheel hub faces black to hide the rusty bits, and I have a set of redwall tire spats I might install as well (jury is still out on them)

Also, did you notice the car does not sit up in the back? Better pic to reflect the change...

I "popped" the springs out, and took half a coil off both top and bottom...

I think you logged onto the wrong site. You're looking for eHarmony.
No, they won't take me - they don't allow wild sex on the first date.

Seems the wheels you mentioned are 20lbs, I like them a lot but as with the BBS wheels and even the Stance Mindset you are still heavy compared to what I like, the OZ wheels I have my eyes on are 13.8lbs, this is more along the lines of lightweight to me, on the Miata I ran a few different sets and one of those was I want to say 12 something. Just looking for clarification and more info on what you consider "lightweight". :cool:

Lightweight in this case on the Fiat is getting something that weighs less than what I have.

Typically the term lightweight on a small car like this is getting both wheel and tire combo under 30lbs. That means typically a 13 lb wheel and a 17 lb tire. The 16" circuit 8's and the 195/50-16 kumhos that are on it weigh 32 lbs total.

I started talking with a local rota wheel retailer and he said the 15x6 rota rb's come in at 12 lbs, and the Toyo R1R 195/50-15's weigh about 18 lbs each so i might have my goal reached.

Clarification - the circuit 8's are not on my Fiat, but on my 1994 Capri...
