Center hole is too big, correct one is 57.1mm

Remember that using open wheels on Beretta will show the extremely craptastic brakes and look stupid, I recommend against such wheels.

I have a set of GTZ rims on my spare parts car, but I can't take em off If I don't have replacement set..

Looks nice, what do you think? Have to take better pictures when (if) it stops raining....
Wheels are 225/45/17, rims 7" wide and ET 38.

Nice sound when tail pipe is rusted before rear muffler :) Have to fix that. Nothing much to say, I've been just driving, everything works. :)

Just driving is good. That means that you are not having any trouble.

Oh no. Didn't go through yearly inspection, too rusty from upper side of rear springs. And brake failure when going home from there, brake test was ok, maybe some rusty brake line now what is broken.... And windshield washer doesn't work, motor works but no water coming.. And maybe coolant leaks from some hose on top of right front wheel, should it? :sorry:

As another thread any coolant coming from a hose on the top of the right front wheel is the tank overflow, its too full or the engine is pushing fluid back into the tank causing it to overflow. That is a drain and telling you something is wrong somewhere.

Rear spring supports are the usual place to rot in these cars (design flaw), I just redid mine this summer.

If you overfill the coolant, it will drain from over the passenger side front wheel when it gets got and expands.

Rear spring support, right side - fixed, brakelines - fixed, and some fuel lines too. We are rolling again.
