Rial 6-spoke 15" alloys from Tire Rack(?)

Hello members. Has anyone purchased the Rial 6-spoke Rial 15" alloy wheels from the Tire Rack? Aftermarket wheels are not easy to find for these cars. I should be receiving my Pure within the next 2-3 months and plan on upgrading the steel wheel/hubcap wheels to a set of quality alloys. At $135 each these alloy wheels look sharp and are priced right.

Does anyone have a ForTwo 450? I want to put the Rial Le Mans on a 450 but am looking for feedback from those that have successfully done it and whether spacers were needed and what size spacers due to the offset of the rims. Thanks.

Search?

Your best bet is definitely a search. There will be lengthy threads on stock replacement fitments like mini2nut or equally long threads on the same size front and rear setups. Search, dude.

Decorsa and Genius wheels are about the same price and look better IMO

The 15x6s still are. No one must be ordering the 15x5 fronts (I didn't) as they are on closeout for $89.
