These are brand new tires, and have learned they're too narrow for my 7" aftermarket rims. I'm in the Portland , Oregon area, and could deliver within a reasonable radius from here.
From Tirerack.com, they would cost you about $345, after rebate, and including shipping.
I'm asking $300 for the set. Please send a PM.

To help move these, I'll pay half of the UPS shipping cost. I can get a quote once we know the destination zip.
If there is a local buyer, I'll take $50 off, making the price for all four $250.

Interesting web site. Yes, it shows the recommended rim with for a 195/45R16 from 6.5" to 8". Mounted on my Borbet rims however, the tire cross section was narrower than the rim, so there would be constant risk of damage. If it went to the shop like that and the tech needed to remove a wheel, rim damage would be a certainty. They couldn't be laid on the ground (back side down), stacked without protection between, or leaned against each other. Not worth it for me.
I went with 205/50R16 Michelin X-Ice instead, problem solved. The Pirellis will work perfectly for most Fiat owners.

Thats not a rim width issue but lack of tire bead protection. Pirelli seems to be generally lacking in this regard with the stock p zeros having the same issue.
