You would do best to post the question in the Abarth 500 section.

    What you will need though, is to change the Tyre to a 125/70 r16 on the coupe wheel it was a 125/80 r16 tyre on the wheel I sourced. (The tyre was the most expensive item at about £80 if I remember correctly.)
    The tyre needs changing to give the correct rolling diameter or as near as you can get.


    Hope this is of interest and helpful.

    Can you please confirm that the 16" wheel fits the wheel well?

    Thanks

    Very helpful info, especially for a newbie like me. I now know exactly what to look for.

    However, one question: Apologies if it is sounds thick, but all the space savers that I can find on ebay are 14' and my car (and all the Abarths, as far as I know..) is fitted with 16' wheels. Will the difference in diameter of the space saver to the rest of the wheels not be a problem?

    'Spare wheel'

    Hi,
    We're in the process of buying an Abarth Turismo and are not happy about there not being a spare wheel.  We've read sac841's post - 'Abarth 500/595 spacesaver wheel - the complete solution ***UPDATED***' and are wondering if it's still the best information as it was originally posted in 2015.  Any views?

    Yes this is still current as the cars are not supplied with spare wheels.
