Hi guys,

I have a set of 17 x 8 wheels with +20 offset, 215/40/17 tires, will it able to fit 2012 Abarth? I'm running H&R springs with Bistlein shocks.


The most important thing is can it turn and will it touch the fender?


thx

Chris

According to willtheyfit.com compared to stock 17's, this new wheel will have an inner rim which is 8.7mm further away from the suspension strut. The outer rim will poke out 21.4mm more than before.

So I dont think you will have a problem with it hitting inside but your going to have problems at the fender. I have Sportline springs and I need 15mm spacers on the stock rims to make them flush. So adding 21.4mm to the stock rims I think you would need to roll your fenders to make them not rub.
