Here'* the story... I was looking for the exact GXP rims, which i found, almost the exact replica, made by Alessio. I also had the ones i bought, Mille Miglia Evo5'* in mind too because they were on the concept version of the gxp. I liked that the Alessio rims were on all gxp'* that are now out so I ordered the Alessio rims, and a day after i ordered them i recieved a email saying that it would take 2 months to get them. So i just decided to get the Mille Miglia ones. I orded them from Belle tire and ended up paying about 1200 for all and tires. About 900 for the rims and got a great deal on 245/45/18'* for 75 a peice from a local auto parts store. Belle tire doesnt stock them they had to order them through tire rack i believe. I got them next day which was alot better than 2 months.

These are the Alessio f1'* closest to GXP wheels i would find, but a pain to find someone that stocks them or can order them.
