This might help other people as well. What is the bolt pattern? I'm assuming 4 bolt X ...??Any clue on what the tire size/wheel size of the Fiat 500 will be? Hopefully not too small, and hopefully there will be a variety of options when purchasing your Fiat 500.
Does anyone know if the 500 fits 17s, and I'm sure it does. What size tires and what specs on the wheels themselves, offset and width.Depending on the engine size, there are a few different options offered for the 500 sedan.
Here are the various sizes offered in Europe for the 500 sedan equipped with the 1.4 liter engine.
The 1.4L versions have these sizes available:
With steel wheels:
5 1/2 Jx14H2-ET35 - 175/65 R14 82 H
6 Jx15H2-ET40 - 185/55 R15 82 H
With Alloy wheels:
6 Jx15H2-ET35 - 185/55 R15 82 H
6 1/2 Jx16H2-ET35 - 195/45 R16 84 H
Hope this helps...
Best regards, Chris
Should we then assume that a 205/50/15 or 205/45/16 won't rub on a 500 Lounge? Thank you!Wheel and tire sizes for the Fiat 500 are 15 inch rims rolling on 185/55 R 15 rubber.
Wheel and tire sizes for the Abarth SS are 17 inch with 205/40 ZR 17 Pirelli Pzero tires
based on my past experience with many other makes and models of cars, I believe you can go up to the 205/45R16's with no problem.Should we then assume that a 205/50/15 or 205/45/16 won't rub on a 500 Lounge? Thank you!
Just replying to a question on 17 inch wheels on the 500. It is recommended that you do not exceed 16 inch on a 500 1.4L. I have 16 inch on mine (the 5 os) and it really suits the car although the 15 inch give a better ride. The 17 inch are really only suitable for the Abarth and are the preferred option over the 16 for the 'look'. I personally prefer the 5 petal ones as opposed to the 10 petal. Aftermarket guys on ebay have made the 17 inch 5 petal in 16 inch and they do look good. The 16 inch '5 os' are fitted on the 'Ferrari' version 500 1.4L so they are more authentic.
Our Fiat 500's are 1.4L 16valve.. they should be enough to puttering around town with larger than factory 16" sport wheels... you wont be going that fast, but if you would like more performance definitely look into adding an air intake and/or exhaust to it.
