6x15" ET28 winter wheels? Looking at some Alfa GTA replica wheels for the Fiesta

Thinking of giving these a try for the winter. Campagnolo Alfa GTA replica wheels…
I need to find out what the diameter the center bore is of the Alfa and Fiesta wheels.

I've always dug Campagnolo wheels -. like on Panteras. Seems that these are almost reasonable enough cost wise to give them a try with some Blizzak tires - or maybe I'm just nuts.

Does ET28 offset seem reasonable for 6x15's?

28 will put them closer to flush. This is a double edged sword. There will be less space for the ice to fall off and clearance for the wheels once that starts building up. ( i ran flush fitment with spacers last year on a 1.5" drop and it was a big problem when the snow got packed tight and almost locked up the wheels.

I had not thought about that. I need double check what the offset is of a stock 17x7.5 wheel

It can be done. But just know clearing the ice buildup is not going to be enjoyable
