I'm going to go out on a limb and say there is no way on earth those rims will fit. I'm curious as to why you would want to put contact patches 10 inches wide(give or take) on the rear of a front wheel drive car. Even if you could do it, it might render the vehicle rather unwilling to change direction.

It's possible, but challenging, and if you're willing to spend the bucks and do some fender rolling, spacers, etc. to accommodate the extra wide widths. I'm assuming you're also lowering with COs. NoJeeBs did staggered AG wheels and they look great. As spec'ing out the right size is technical and can be costly if you make a mistake, I would employ the services of a tire/wheel specialist with relevant experience to help achieve the right fitment and fender roll.

I do have to say those rims are very sexy looking I love the whole concave look and being gold in color is awesome too!

Yeah I was thinking those might be too wide but let's say if I find a staggered set with 9inch rear will it work? If so what kind of offset would I need?

or if anyone can recommend me a set of mesh concave/staggered wheels that can fit the abarth with use of wobble bolts thanks in advance :)

I had staggered wheels on my honda S2000CR and they were more of a pain then anything else because you couldn't switch tires if you had to. I don't think it would work on the Abarth, mine is lowered and has rolled fenders I'm running stock 16X 7.5 rims with 205/45/16 tires that are 8.2" wide and i have about a half inch side to side clearance it's mostly a sway bar bracket wanting to hit the rim problem. I hope this makes sense as i'm now totally confused!
