To the OP, thank you for finding out about the fitment for Alfa wheels. That gives us another option for those that want to change wheels.

Not convinced about the cloverleaf's myself, but that's just me. I do like the wheel color though.

They dont rub at all. They are the same diameter and width as stock. Not sure why it looks jacked, maybe because wide angle mode or because the sidewall is thinner so it accentuates the fender gap. The tire is literally the exact same size as stock except for the sidewall.

I dont blame you. To be honest I kind of hated the 5 hole style when I first bought them but wanted to use these until I was able to get a set of the forged Tecnicos. They grow on you though and now I rather like them.

The gap looks wrong to me also, but only at the top. Maybe it is the lighting.

Stock kappa wheel gaps - your larger gaps may just be the wheels - are the diameters of the tires spot on what the stock 18" were?

Those look tighter than stock to me…
On my car, which I fitted with height adjustable BC Racing shocks, we carefully measured stock ride height and set it to exactly the same height after swapping shocks. All of this was done in the first few months of ownership so nothing had any time to settle. I had a brow to my driveway that mandated not going any lower than stock.

I personally recommend stainless steel brake lines and a fresh fluid flush with Dot4. Those 2 things will set you up for success.

I solved the center cap issue with some surgery.

Prying off the outer metal piece from the plastic mounting disc on both the Alfa and the Saturn center caps was straightforward

Then it was just a matter of installing the Saturn medallion on the Alfa mounting ring:
