    will it fit?

    Also if any of you are handy with photoshop, please put 456 wheels onto my mondial below to see how it would look.

    Thanks.

    Adnaan,
    I thought about this for mine. I think the offsets are pretty close so they should bolt up reasonably close to correct, but the wheels particularly the rears, are much wider than stock. Not sure if there would be rubbing issues, or if they would stick out too far and look silly. They are nice wheels though, and 17" is about right on a Mondial IMHO.

    Here you go....

    Looks pretty good!

    ....Mondial seem to usually respond very well to updated rims.

    your welcome in advance... :)

    Keep in mind the huge rotors would not be on there....

    I like the look and thanks for that. My teeny little rotors will be quite exposed. Guess I will give it a go. May be a while but I intend to report back with any technical issues. The tires are going to be a bit large for the Mondial and I expect it will negatively affect the handling to some degree, power and torque curves probably will not match the tires capability and the ability to "toss" the car around will be limited. That said, this is an interim solution for me.

    If you use 355 wheels you need adapters and bolts - Recambi sells a set specifically for this conversion. I did not notice any significant change in handling but an experienced track driver probably would.
