Robert has these. Only downfall is they are 6" wide vs a stock beretta wheel which is 7" wide.

they squish the tire as well... 225's will have a noticable side bulge and I am not sure on the stance but yes if the offset isn't quite the same there is the possibility of the stance changing.

I didn't measure Roberts car from well face to wheel face so I can't accurately answer that question, just guessing.

Damn that is sad to hear.
So where there any changes with those wheels? Like handling,ride or MPG? I'm thinking of getting some Cavy wheels after I felt how light they were vs the Z26 wheels. Those were the older gray 5 star style though. I swear they were at least 5lbs less or more.
If those wheels on your car have the same weight that would be fine. I can find them at the JY or online.

no i didn't really notice any handling its surprisingly i had those z24 rims on that car too, then a GTZ kit and GTZ rims. It went though a lot! RIP

The car was a 2.2 base 5 speed, it got excellent mileage regardless of the rims.

5 spoke z24 rims off a 1999 with centers off the 2003 z24

Oh crap I remember that car now.
Thanks for the info and photos! I'm really thinking hard about putting some Z24 or LS wheels on. Poor old tired car has a hard time pushing those heavy Z26 wheels. Tires are the same size as what goes on the z24's anyway.
