    Our new 500e with 17" Ciao rims

    I actually got the wheels and tires from Tire Rack before the car was delivered. Love the look and the price!
    Lowering springs would really top it off but I hesitate since it is a leased car.

    Looks great!

    Those are the Ciao Milano wheels aren't they?

    I've got the 17 inch ones also and love them, almost 2 years of autocrossing on them and no issues.

    Those wheels look absolutely amazing! You shouldn't worry too much, there's a few "lease-friendly" modifications that are available!

    With lowering springs, you shouldn't have too much of an issue either, it's as simple as having them swapped out at the end of your lease. Drop us a line if you're interested.

    I had one of these parked next to me the other day.They were lucky I didn't have my tool kit with me or they would of been missing some parts. An Abarth with
    500e parts on it would look evil. I am a little jealous of how good the 500e looks... Good job StaceyR you won the internets today.

    Congrats on your new purchase, and welcome to the forum, be sure to let me know if you plan on picking up the lowering springs. Nice looking Fiat

    Yes they are Ciao Milano in silver. They look much better in person than in pics...like the Electric Orange paint. The machined face with anthracite looked good but would clash with all the white "bits" on my 500e. Too bad they didn't have a machined face/white option to match the white on the car. These wheels were a steal at the $79 close-out price and the Kumho 205/40-17 tires at $60 after rebate sealed the deal!
