In Reply to: Anyone have 18" rims on 1.9L.....need advice posted by Go Topless on November 08, 2000 at 08:27:32:

Is not a type of wheel not made anymore.
I made the misstake and got really nice 17x8 wheels at clearance price. Had bad luck when I had a date with a MI pothole and cracked the wheel really bad. Cracked to beyond being able to be repaired.
( I was not paying attention to the road, got out on the edge and hit a 5" deep hole at edge of pavement. No wheel with lowprofile tire would have survived it...)
Had to order a new wheel from factory in Italy and the whole thing became a BIG PITA!
I was lucky and got the help from a salesguy at their main office that took pity in my situation and help me out, or I would have been SOL.
