Is any one using these? Or know if they would work for an Abarth?

Don't see why these wouldn't work...But woops Edit...

Edit: woops other than the fact they are nuts and you'll want bolts instead which are tough to find...

Why do they have to be bolts?

Because there aren't wheel studs sticking out of the hubs to hold the rims up, the bolts go through the wheel and into the hub to secure them.

This thread I started a while back may help with converting from lugbolts to lugnuts. http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showthread.php?12090-Has-anyone-converted-their-studs-to-male-studs

Here is a direct link to a conversion kit. http://www.race-studs.com/servlet/the-67/M12x1.25-Performance-Studs/Detail

Wow cant believe I missed that... that would be what bolts do, isnt it.
So the studs would just go through or screw in to the hub where the bolts went in? any one know of a DIY of this on here?
