Agree with you, those Momo ones there look like s**t. That's something you would put on a riceboiler, methinks.. Not an Alfa!

The brake discs from Alfa are a bit small, so I wouldn't go for very "open" 17" and especially not for 18" wheels, because it makes your discs look very very small indeed.... And that's not cool! Replacing the discs with bigger ones would be an option, but that's going to cost you a whole lot, I think!

Brake disks are seen from close distance and from "expert" eyes.. Good looking wheels are good estimated by everyone wink

I would like bigger disks (even i cant afford them right now, i barely can afford the new wheels) not for the looks, but for the performance mostly.

I was a biker and i appreciate strong brakes at high speeds! Braking is another (not only for safety) thing that gives much pleasure to the driver, sometimes its more stimulating than a fast acceleration. Anyone who had a ride with a big "street" type bike, knows what i m talking about wink
