Hey, thanx all of you for the response. I can see this group is in touch and has some attitude!
Just to be more specific, What I would like to do is to put a set of stock ferrari 16X7, 16x8 wheels on the car (looking for sources of used or replica aftermarket) I still have the original, really dry, tall profile tires and small diameter rims on the car. My car runs strong and healthy, and gets a little "loose" on hard accel/braking, plus I like the look of the wider rears on the US 308s (more GTOish). I would consider a wheel more like the 288 GTO wheel if it was not $$$ prohibitive.
Also, I've got a tweaked rear bumper (not that bad but the rest of the car is sweet and I would like to straighten or replace it. Any input or experience?
Thanx again for the warm welcome for the newbie (I've owned the car for two weeks).

Hey Lou,
It's common to find 308s with a front or rear bumper that is tweaked. Someone somewhere hit something and partially collapsed the energy absorber. The answer - collapse the other side. Drill a small hole in the energy absorber to let the fluid drain and push the whole thing in.
