I would like to have a spare to carry on long trips, any ideas? I will get a tire bag from Tire Rack and just throw it in the back.
Anyone have an old tire that holds air, that would suffice, a wheel would be nice. Can't use a standard Fiat because of the front brakes on the Abarth.
Help!!!!!

The Madness guys might have some take-off wheels, or buy one from your dealer.
Tire Rack?
Are you asking for a free wheel?

Not wanting anything for free, a used tire that holds air would be better than nothing, a damaged wheel would be sweet.
I have my dealer scouting for one or both for me.

I have a scratched 17in stock Abarth wheel which I currently have no plans for, maybe it'll be repaired someday but likely it'll collect dust. No tire or TPMS, just a rim of which I have no clue the value. I've seen one with a very small blemish for sale at $375 but this is not a small blemish and S&H isn't cheap with wheels.

Do you have a price in mind?

Shipping will be the hardest part of it I found out recently in getting a quote for some other wheels. Shoot me a PM with your address so we can figure out a fair price with S&H included and I'll check into it next week on Tuesday and then get back to you. :)
