Check with the usual vendors, (Fun Imported, IAP, Vick, Bruce's) they carry wheels, Another source is Mark Sanders at Fiatwheels.com. He has a set of 15x7 BWA's listed on his website. I bought my wheels from him and have been very pleased with them.

Just keep in mind that the most important specification when changing to aftermarket wheels (especially for a front drive car) is wheel offset.The stock wheels on Beta Coupes and Zagatos is a positive 34mm offset.When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes numerically. Deviating offset too far will adversely effect the cars geometry and handling.Spacers are sometimes an option to adjust offset,and extra long wheel bolts will have to be used to safely mount things.

Hi BobD,

Take a look at my website
www.serpentautosport.com
I have some interesting wheel applications that would work for you.

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Keep the revs up,
Charlie
