    Not at all. In fact I am sure it will be fine with spacers at stock height. I just can't vouch for it since I don't have that setup.

    Is there the possibility of them rubbing on the inside without the spacers?

    Should be good not lowered then as that would give even more room.

    Still would like some reference pictures at you leisure.

    What? The speedo wasn't calibrated for the 16s, just the 17s?? I ass-u-me-d there was a different calibration for each wheel size.

    I run the Federal 595 EVOs at 205/45-16 lowered with Nuespeed springs. I've experienced no rubbing, even with aggressive driving (track/canyon/autocross). I like how they filled out the wheel well better. I opted for the 16" wheel at the dealer because I assumed (incorrectly) that I'd come across factory size tires easier and cheaper, as I tend to wear them quickly. I'll likely go to a 17" next spring, unless someone wants to trade me now?!

    (Ignore the girl, sorry.)

    Looks good. Are you running spacers?
    EVERY drive is an epic drive in an Abarth!
