    +1 for Lorinser Speedies. Very nice looking alloys.

    Here's some photos of our old fortwo with Roadster Spinlines (running at standard ride height):

    Looking at it, maybe just a set of roadster rear brabus monoblocks may do the trick. Move my existing rears to the front, then the deeper roadster ones on the rear. Like an oem+ look

    The standard ForTwo brabus alloys look good. The Roadster ones would be really nice but you may well need to source the widestar arches as even with the black extenders I think they'll stick out from the arches...

    Here's the standard alloys on our current one - running with Brabus suspension... you can see they are right in line with the extended wheel arches, so the Roadster alloys would almost certainly need the Widestar arches...

    IF you’ll go for the set of Roady monoblocks at the back and the existing rears at the front, then you have two problems. First you wont be able to lower the car for the good look, as it will rub the arches and the bottom lip (it will get worst when the car is loaded or with a passenger). 2nd is the rear roadster wheels are very wide, so you will still need a wide star arches at the back and the front will be sticking out too (even if you use the Brabus arch extensions) Hope that helps.

    PS the first option will be good is you wont lower your car. I don’t know how it works with the Brabus springs and chocks.

    I am sorry to disappoint you (if I did)

    I think this link shows the look you want, can't understand why front and rear are different stud pattern though

    Roadie steels have a nice dish on the rears and widen the track, they fit properly, oem so insurance friendly, not loads of money either...
