Oops... after two days the Ebay TPMS sensors gave up the ghost and I'm sporting a system fault light... going to use the black tape solution, since messing with the sensors is just a waste of money. After fifty years of driving, I carry a tire gauge and can keep my own tires properly inflated, NHTSA notwithstanding

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]The apparently rare 2016 Fiat 500X Pop, wearing new Tire Rack 16" Sport Tuning T9 black wheels. Tire Rack has no Fiat 500X picture available of course and only offers three real options for aftermarket 16" wheels. You can do better for much more $$ of course, or step up to 17" wheels/tires for about a grand. By the way, I'm using Ebay TPMS sensors and they work just fine @ 4 for $32...

That's a nice wheel and fits the theme well. I had Sport Tuning Turbine on my last car.

Nice job! Did you stick with factory tires and are these wheels any wider than your factory wheels?

I kept the factory continental tires and put them on half inch wider 16x7 Sport Tuning T9 BLK MA LP wheels. The only difficulty was the close tolerance with the front brake calipers - you won't be able to stick wheel weights anywhere close to the outside edge of the wheel. This would be a different vehicle with 17s and a bit lower profile summer tire; would probably be just a tad quicker in the turns...
