    If I recall correctly on my 500e, the offsets are the same front and rear, with the extra width on the rears on the outside. I would have no problem running matched, wider wheels on the 'e', particularily when you would be running lower aspect tires (40 or 35) anyway if you go to 16's or 17's. From what I can gather from various sources, one of which I met who actually did some development work on the 'e', the wider rear rims stretch the tires a bit more, effectively making the tire sidewalls stiffer, which helped minimize polar end swapping in sharp turning maneuvers at speed which can happen if the tire sidewalls deflect, which is more of a problem with the 'e' because of the heavier and more rearward weight bias due to the rear-mounted batteries.

    I know this is an old thread, but I can tell you the front 5.5" wide wheels have an offset of 35mm and the rear 6.5" ones have a 28mm offset.

    Has anybody put “rear” wheels on all 4 corners of their 500e? I get that fiat did the different widths for a reason yadda yadda but aesthetically i’d Really like the wheel widths to match so the sidewalls appear the same. I guess this could also be achieved with narrower tires up front. Anybody try that? Just curious.

    A fair number of owners have installed aftermarket wheels (using the same size on all 4 corners) and I haven't seen anybody report any issues. Fiat made front/rear wheels different to optimize the suspension, but the physical difference is quite small and the actual effect is also probably very minor. An advantage of having all 4 wheels the same is that it facilitates tire rotation. IMO the ability to rotate tires for even wear is a much greater benefit than what Fiat had intended with the wheels.
