I purchased the Rota 15x7 and put Potenza RE-71R 205/50-15 on them. These tires are fantastic! Also I like the look of the Rotas over the phone dial wheels.

Agreed. They do look better on a red spider. Which is what I wanted but kinda glad I did not end up with the obligatory red Alfa. Overall I think the ROTAs fit the spider better than the super heavy...
