Apparently there are new 16" wheels for the 2014 model year and color(black) for both 16" and 17". Has anyone seen or have photos of what they look like?

I did see that one on www.fiat500usa.com, however I was under the impression it was for the non-Abarth 500. I was expecting to see a Scorpion logo on the center cap if it were for the Abarth model, no?

Yes, there will be new wheels for Abarth, but so far only 16".

Both 16" are nice options, I like their finish much more than the current one.

That first wheel looks great! Reminds me of the '87-8 Thunderbird Turbocoupe 'Snowflake' rim.
The second one belongs on a seventies Fiat, Mini or Mustang II.
Not a fan of equal spoke rims.

I love the looks of the first "snowflake" wheel, but I can't say I mind I missed out on it by getting a 2013 model. There's an awful lot of surfaces to clean on that one!

I like the bottom one myself, though those non Abarth rims look cool in the on e shot also actually. I do not care for the black one personally though I know many will like those.

I also did not care for the 17" option wheels on my 13 so I was glad to get the normal 16" wheels as I loved those. I'm odd compared to many I guess lol.

Can't wait to see official pics of the new wheels on the various color Abarths. I'd like to get a second set for winter tires, but the costs are way too high so far but maybe new options will lower the value of what's out there now?

I know the wheels are shiny but did anyone notice what looks like a factory offering of a big brake kit sitting next to the wheel. Hmmmm

Agreed, drop the current 16 and offer the two pictured. I picked the 16 for a softer ride, but they don't do much for the car in my opinion, these 16s are nicer for the 2014 cars.

I love my factory 17'' wheel. I have to admit though, they did a great job with both of the new rims I like them both.
