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.

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

Fiat 500 wheel/tire sizes

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

This might help other people as well. What is the bolt pattern? I'm assuming 4 bolt X ...??

Any input is appreciated.

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.

Thank you.

well from what I've found seems like a bolt pattern of 4X98 and Center bore of 58.1. You can run 4X100 wheels with wobble bolts (or which ever name you like to call them)

Wheel size (and style)

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.

Should we then assume that a 205/50/15 or 205/45/16 won't rub on a 500 Lounge? Thank you!

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.

once I've had mine for a while, it's one of the mods I'm planning on doing. nothing wrong with a little more rubber between the road and the wheel for a better ride. also, around here we have issues with potholes/chuckholes from the winter. might save a wheel or two down the road. :D

Why are 17s not recommended on the 500L 1.4? Weight? Some 17s are lighter than the factory 16s.

I was thinking about 17"or even 18" in my car. However its the 1.4 8v one. Do you guys think I would have a stronger engine to put such "big"wheels. In my opnion 16"still small for 500.

Is it ok to use 4x100 wheels on 500?

I'd like to buy this model of wheels but its 4x100. Not sure if there is any brand which made them in 4x98. I do prefer them in graphite color( my car is white).
Do you guys know where I can find them ?

@ricardovasco,

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.

Mine is 1.4 8v. Its mexican but made only for Brazil with flex fuel engine. My model is Cult ( the standard one) which comes with 15".
Do you think its ok to use 17"? What about 4x100? Using 17" should I buy sport springs or another one not too low?

My US/NA spec is 1.4L 16v, I have the sport model which has 16" sport wheels. it moves them pretty well. I've seen some with 18" wheels on them. It would depend on the weight of the wheels/tires as well. If it's not too much more than what you currently have it might not make much of a difference in performance, but speedometer readings will change.

You may get away without lowering, but you will have some wheel gap between the fender and the wheels.

when dealing with wheels, you must consider the O.D. of the TIRE, not necessarily just the wheel.

if you keep your O.D. of the tire about the same, you can go with a 15, 16, 17 or 18" wheel. the O.D. on the OE Sport tire (195/45R16) is 22.8", according to the tirerack.com website.

also keep in mind that if you're increasing the O.D. of the tire, be very careful of the width. they'll have to be able to clear the fenders, strut, etc. too.

good luck! :)
