I will be taking delivery of my Abarth later this afternoon, what's the max tire width you can run with the stock 16 inch rims? Also, what's the ideal spacer size everyone is using? On my old car I ran 10mm up front and 15mm in the back.

I personally do not like spacers. I am running 205/45X16 and do not have any rubbing.

215s should be fine - many of us are using 215/40-17s on stock wheels or at least stock offset wheels. The only issues with 16s would be 1) diameter since most tires would be taller and 2) squeezing them on the narrower 6.5" wheels. If you're comfortable with either or both, you should have no problems using a 215 without issues.
